KVH, Kongsberg Partner for IoT Connectivity


KVH Industries has announced that Kongsberg is its first major partner for KVH WatchTM IoT Connectivity as a Service.

KVH Watch will provide connectivity for Vessel Insight, a new maritime data infrastructure solution from Kongsberg's Kognifai digital ecosystem.

Vessel Insight enables customers to cost efficiently capture and aggregate quality data from their assets, and securely transfer them to the cloud. Once data is available in the cloud, customers get access to a large range of leading applications and services that can turn their data into business value and optimize performance at sea.

Kongsberg Digital plans to utilize KVH Watch IoT Connectivity as a Service as an offer in their digitalization product portfolio, featuring two modes: Watch Flow, for 24/7, machine-to-machine data delivery compatible with major IoT ecosystems such as Kognifai; and Watch Intervention, for on-demand high-speed sessions for face-to-face support and remote equipment access.
