As part of an effort to bring convenient communications to mariners worldwide, KVH Industries, Inc., and On-Waves are partnering to make cell phone service at sea a reality for crew and passengers on vessels around the globe. Using KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadbandsm network and TracPhone V7 satellite communications system along with the On-Waves maritime cell phone service, crew members, passengers, and onboard contractors can easily and affordably use their own cell phones to make and receive calls to and from anywhere in the world.
