Satcom Direct offers SkyStream bonding and aggregation


Satcom Direct is offering a channel bonding and aggregation service called SkyStream, powered by the company’s Satcom Direct Router (SDR).

The company says the solution enables customers to combine multiple streaming channels of Inmarsat Swiftbroadband to achieve higher data rates for real-time communications applications. The technology embedded in the SDR enables customers to bond two to four channels of service.

“People expect their smartphones, tablets and laptops to work on their aircraft just like they would on the ground and Satcom Direct is committed to providing that experience,” said Ken Bantoft, vice president of technologies and development at Satcom Direct. “SkyStream lets connectivity devices work globally at the fastest speeds possible.”

SkyStream can deliver speeds of up to 1.4mbps of throughput for aircraft with four-channel systems. The aircraft must be equipped with the SDR, SkyStream software key and SwiftBroadband satellite service.
