[Via Satellite 02-19-2016] Byzantine Maritime Gas, a Singapore-based company that specializes in marine transportation of petroleum products, is deploying KVH Industries’ TracPhone V11-IP antenna systems with mini-VSAT broadband service for its new fleet of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) carriers.
The TracPhone V11-IP Byzantine Maritime Gas will use is a dual-mode C- and Ku-band antenna system designed to provide global connectivity, redundancy, and rain-fade resistance while delivering data speeds up to 4 Mbps downlink and 1 Mbps uplink. Byzantine will use KVH’s network management services via the CommBox Network Manager, which is built into the TracPhone V11-IP’s belowdecks unit. The CommBox services provide least cost routing and connection-specific firewall rules, as well as web caching and compression.
The myKVH web portal that Byzantine Maritime Gas is using as part of the mini-VSAT Broadband service offers a single, secure site with the tools to configure the onboard network, monitor vessel positioning, obtain vessel data usage status, and allocate data usage to individual users or tasks onboard.
