The market-leading business aviation inflight broadband solution starts 2021 with a major milestone
Satcom Direct (SD) has started the year with a milestone achievement, having successfully activated its 500th terminal for Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX business aviation inflight broadband solution.
“Satcom Direct has collaborated with Inmarsat for more than 20 years and this 500th Jet ConneX activation confirms them yet again as one our most valued partners,” commented Kai Tang, Senior Vice President of Business and General Aviation (BGA) at Inmarsat.
“SD continues to provide visionary services to its customers and Inmarsat is just as committed to supporting the customer experience. We can only continue to do that by closely collaborating with our partners to keep delivering exciting new global connectivity services to the aerospace market.”
SD is managing service delivery to a variety of private jets, in addition to government and military aircraft, all of which are optimising Inmarsat’s reliable, powerful high-speed broadband to stay connected globally.
Jet ConneX is supported by the SD router family, which augments inflight connectivity efficiency, delivers a portfolio of customisable applications, and supports cybersecurity management. As SD continues to enhance its hardware, software and infrastructure solutions, this latest accomplishment enriches the support and solutions experience available to customers around the globe.
“The activation of 500 Jet ConneX terminals using Inmarsat’s GX constellation demonstrates that connectivity has become an essential part of aviation today,” stated Chris Moore, SD President Business Aviation.
“In addition to delivering powerful communications to improve inflight productivity, the collection, aggregation and analysis of data generated by the aircraft improves flight operations, enhances efficiency and improves financial management. As Inmarsat continues to bolster its outstanding Global Xpress constellation, SD continues to develop services enabling optimisation of the data capability. It’s a powerful combination for a data-hungry aerospace sector.”
