Following the launch of Inmarsat’s new Multi-Voice service, Cobham Satcom has announced a new multiple voice line capability across its entire Aviator SwiftBroadband range. All existing Aviator terminals can now support Multi-Voice after an upgrade, and the service will also be available on Cobham’s next-generation product family, Aviator S.
The Inmarsat Multi-Voice service for SwiftBroadband will support up to nine simultaneous voice lines on a single Aviator SwiftBroadband terminal. The Multi-Voice service is compatible with Cobham’s Aviator wireless handset, which features noise and echo cancellation. Passengers and crew can also use their own wi-fi-enabled smartphones to access SwiftBroadband voice calling on Aviator. With Inmarsat’s Multi-Voice, each handset can have its own number and it is also possible to dial out from any handset in the aircraft.
“The availability of Inmarsat Multi-Voice provides all existing Aviator users with a great opportunity to take advantage of an easy upgrade to the new service, plus the Multi-Voice capability will be available on all new system installations,” said Kim Gram, vice president of aeronautical business at Cobham Satcom. “The new service will provide many benefits to our customers, particularly business travelers, enabling them to have up to nine telephone lines open in the cabin with enhanced call quality and lower calling costs.”
