KVH Industries, Inc., announced that global ship operator RIX Shipmanagement Ltd. has chosen KVH’s AgilePlans® subscription-based Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) program to supply its vessels with VSAT connectivity.

RIX plans to use a mix of KVH’s TracPhone® V7-HTS, TracPhone V3-HTS, and TracPhone V30 systems for its fleet of dry-cargo and multipurpose vessels trading worldwide.

Hansael SIA, in Latvia, provided technical and sales expertise to RIX, advising them of the benefits of KVH’s AgilePlans service. “AgilePlans is enabling RIX to quickly bring their growing fleet the reliable satellite communications solution they need to help their business succeed,” says Oleg Orlov, director of Hansael SIA.

AgilePlans

AgilePlans includes a choice of KVH TracPhone hardware, unlimited email and texting, daily world and national news via NEWSlink™ TV and NEWSlink Print, installation in as many as 4,000 ports and locations, cybersecurity protection, KVH OneCare™ maintenance, no CAPEX, and no commitment, all for one monthly fee.

Commercial maritime fleets worldwide are migrating from legacy L-band systems, where slower data speeds are measured in kilobits per second (Kbps) to VSAT services, such as KVH AgilePlans, where faster data speeds measured in megabits per second (Mbps) enable vessels to improve operational efficiency through digitalization. 

Vessel operators also know that seafarers value fast, reliable connectivity and view it as an important part of crew welfare and life at sea.
