 - April 16, 2014, 9:10 AM

Satcom1, a satellite communications service provider, announced the recent activation of its AvioIP advanced router software on an Emteq eConnect airborne router installed on a Bombardier Global Express. This upgrade, installed by Ruag Aerospace Services, was certified by EASA and validated by the FAA and Transport Canada, according to Satcom1, “the first-ever installation of such advanced features on [the] Global Express.”

AvioIP helps aircraft operators manage satcom costs with features, such as user management, which allows setup of VIP and guest service profiles to manage use of expensive bandwidth, data compression and data acceleration by aggregating two SwiftBroadband channels to achieve data rates up to 800 kbps.

“Satcom1 is extremely proud to partner with Emteq,” said Karina Larsen, Satcom1 vice president of partnerships and contracts. “Emteq has successfully achieved a number of STCs, particularly targeting the mid-size business jet market, and yet another Bombardier aircraft network is a great result. Ruag is reaching large success with their satcom network installs, so Satcom1 is proud to work with them and reach global connectivity with best performance results for use of email, Internet and smartphone operations while in flight.”
