In a series of recent network tests, Rockwell Collins has validated the performance of Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX high-speed broadband service for the business aviation market, as well as a number of its own value-added services.
Rockwell Collins is a value-added reseller of the Jet ConneX service as part of its ARINCDirect offering. Jet ConneX is being launched later in 2016 and will be powered by Inmarsat’s next generation of Ka-band satellites, allowing business aviation passengers to browse the internet, stream online media, stage video conferences and more, with global coverage.
“Jet ConneX from Inmarsat is poised to provide business jet passengers with the highest inflight connectivity speeds available,” said David Stanley, vice president, ARINCDirect cabin services for Rockwell Collins. “Along with higher speeds and greater bandwidth, we are excited to offer a number of value-added applications that will enhance the passenger experience even further.”
New applications and services available from Rockwell Collins’ ARINCDirect include AD Wi-Fi call and text, an app that allows passengers to place and receive calls and texts on their personal cell phone, using their own number, anywhere in the world. The app utilizes broadband service connections from the aircraft. The company is also offering a content filter.
