[Via Satellite 06-23-2015] KVH Industries has recently implemented a global private Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network to connect all of the teleports and satellite beams within its mini-VSAT Broadband network. The MPLS network is designed to aggregate all customer satellite traffic and provides Internet egress at KVH’s Point-of-Presence “MegaPOPs” access points located in North America, Europe, and Asia.

According to KVH, the MPLS network boosts security, quality of service, network reliability and uptime for users with both commercial and recreational vessels. The MPLS network also enables the KVH mini-VSAT Broadband network to provide firewalls and high-speed Internet connections at each MegaPOP to ensure security and reliability of all customer traffic.

Additionally, MPLS allows KVH to supply its mini-VSAT Broadband customers with a Global Static IP service, where customers can be assigned a unique public IP address for use globally. The mini-VSAT Broadband network provides connectivity to commercial vessels and recreational yachts around the world.
