Satcom Direct has activated its 500th terminal for aerospace customers subscribing to Inmarsat’s Global Xpress network through the Jet ConneX service, the companies announced this morning. This places the company as the leading service provider of Inmarsat’s high-speed airborne data service to private and government aviation users worldwide.
Jet ConneX is supported by Satcom Direct’s router family, which augments in-flight connectivity efficiency, delivers SD applications, and supports cybersecurity management. Satcom Direct was the first business aviation communications provider to provision its services and transmit data over Inmarsat’s first two Global Xpress satellites and has been a reseller of Global Xpress since its service launch in 2015.
“The activation of 500 Jet ConneX terminals using Inmarsat’s GX constellation demonstrates that connectivity has become an essential part of aviation today,” noted Satcom Direct business aviation president Chris Moore. “In addition to delivering powerful communications to improve in-flight productivity, the collection, aggregation, and analysis of data generated by the aircraft improve flight operations, enhance efficiency, and improve financial management.”
