Honeywell has introduced the latest version of its AvioIP cabin router software, version 3.0. Developed by the company’s Satcom1 asset, the software is designed to improve the inflight connectivity experience by supporting the latest satcom technologies, including Inmarsat’s JetConneX, and deliver seamless transitions between multiple networks.
“Business jet passengers’ demand for fast and reliable inflight connectivity will be a reality with the latest software update, similar to what passengers experience while on the ground in their daily lives,” said Brian Sill, president, commercial aviation, Honeywell Aerospace. “As the update is compatible with multiple routers, our customers will have greater flexibility and increased choice in hardware selection, which is unlike built-in systems currently on the market.”
The update includes centralized management of the network so aircraft owners can modify bandwidth depending on traffic usage and user preferences. Honeywell says it also gives business jet owners greater flexibility and tighter cost control through individual billings per usage, instead of traditional wholesale aircraft billing.
