Satcom Direct (SD) has been appointed a top-level value-added reseller for Inmarsat Jet ConneX, allowing it to provide this high-speed data service directly to the business aviation community. According to SD, this new status brings more choices to its recently launched SD Xperience, which offers an end-to-end solution for cabin and cockpit communications services, aircraft connectivity hardware, and flight operations software.
“SD was the first business aviation communications provider to provision its services and transmit data over Inmarsat’s first two Global Xpress satellites. We’re delighted that our partnership continues to grow, and we’ve become the leading supplier of Jet ConneX to the global business aviation sector,” said SD president David Greenhill. “Additionally, SD proprietary solutions enhance and optimize the Jet ConneX service to deliver unmatched performance in the air. These services allow operators to manage and maximize bandwidth, improve voice call quality, prioritize passenger data, and more.”
Inmarsat Aviation president Philip Balaam said there are currently more than 400 Jet ConneX activations in the global business aviation market.
