Satellite service provider KVH Industries has announced its AgilePlans Regional solution designed for smaller commercial vessels, fishing vessels and workboats now features data speeds as fast as 6Mbps down/2Mbps up and worldwide coverage giving vessels that typically work in regional waters greater geographic flexibility.
AgilePlans Regional is a Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) subscription-based model that includes a choice of hardware (TracPhone V30, KVH’s newest and easiest-to-install ultra-compact system or the 37cm TracPhone V3-HTS antenna with expanded network management), unlimited email and texting, installation in as many as 4,000 ports and locations, cybersecurity protection, KVH OneCare maintenance, and no commitment, all for one monthly fee.
“The challenges of the pandemic in the past year showed just how important reliable satellite communications are for working vessels and we are committed to ensuring that smaller commercial vessels have access to a solution that meets their needs,” said Mark Woodhead, KVH executive vice president for mobile connectivity. “The no-commitment, all-inclusive AgilePlans model is designed to help fleets upgrade their satcom with no upfront CAPEX costs, which might otherwise be a barrier.”
The AgilePlans Regional service complements KVH’s AgilePlans Global service, which is offered with the 60 cm TracPhone V7-HTS (with data speeds as high as 10/3Mbps down/up) and the 1m TracPhone V11-HTS (with data speeds as high as 20/3Mbps down/up), making AgilePlans available for commercial vessels of all sizes.
