KVH has added a new measure of security and quality to its mini-VSAT Broadband network by reconfiguring the service in a way that corporate customers have used for years to protect data security.

All of the teleports and satellite beams in the mini-VSAT Broadband network are now connected via global private multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), which lets the network provide current-generation firewalls and redundant high-speed Internet connections. MPLS also enhances service quality, increases security, and increases network reliability and uptime, according to the company.

“There are tremendous advantages to an MPLS network in terms of quality of service, reliability and security,” Rick Driscoll, KVH vice president of satellite products and services, stated in a press release. “We are now moving traffic to and from our hubs over state-of-the-art private network connections, as opposed to the public Internet.”

MPLS also lets KVH give mini-VSAT Broadband customers a Global Static IP service, so yachts have a unique public IP address for use globally — making authorized communications to a yacht less complex and more secure.

Did you know: KVH markets its mini-VSAT Broadband network as the most extensive C/Ku-band maritime VSAT network in the world.
