Next-generation HTS System — the High-Speed Revolution in Maritime Communications

The 3-axis, gyro-stabilized, 60 cm (24 inch) diameter TracPhone V7-HTS offers high-throughput global connectivity via next-generation satellites on the mini-VSAT Broadband Network. This comprehensive SATCOM solution includes:

  • Rugged, commercial-grade 60-cm antenna – smaller and up to 34 kg lighter than competing systems.
  • Uncompromised download/upload speeds as fast as 10 Mbps/3 Mbps.
  • Innovative hybrid airtime plans that deliver a free unlimited use data channel running at the same time as your ultra-fast channel.
  • Advanced Ku-band network, with 25 million square miles of added coverage. Ku-band provides greater resilience to weather and rain fade than Ka-band networks.
  • Automatic, fast switching among high-speed network beams, ensuring seamless communications wherever your vessels travel.
  • A high-speed worldwide network that doesn't require antiquated L-band satellites for back up due to rain fade or network beam availability issues.
