Satellite Communications

KVH Offers TracPhone F77

The KVH Tracphone F77 marine satellite com- munication system makes reliable communica- tion, with the ability to receive up-to-the-minute information critical to vessel safety, operation, and business, a reality.

Brought to market in cooperation with Thrane & Thrane, the leading designer and manufacturer of Inmarsat equipment, the KVH Tracphone F77 offers a fully stabilized antenna with a transceiv- er that can serve as the hub of your shipboard communications network. Tracphone F77 uses

Inmarsat's new, global Fleet F77 service, a break- through in maritime communications.

Fleet F77 provides both the high quality and speed of a 64 Kbps mobile Integrated Services

Digital Network (ISDN) service and the flexibil- ity and "always on-line" capability of the

Inmarsat Mobile Packet Data Service (MPDS).

Captains, crews, fleet managers, and vessel own- ers can now have unparalleled real-time access to the information they need: e-mail, the Internet, corporate Intranets, and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Tracphone F77 offers the unmatched versatility and reliability you need to stay safe and stay in touch, almost anywhere on earth.
