Jet ConneX is the high-speed broadband service for business aviation that operates over Inmarsat’s new Global Xpress (GX) constellation. Now available to customers, it delivers a new standard for satellite communications, supporting high data rate applications in flight, including streaming videos and holding video calls. The service is initially available on new aircraft manufactured by Jet ConneX-ready OEM partners.
Satcom Direct (SD) was the first to prove Jet ConneX services over the entire GX network. Now, not only can it provision and activate Jet ConneX aboard new aircraft, its proprietary solutions enhance the Ka-band technology and optimize the service to deliver unmatched performance in the air. SD proprietary technologies manage and maximize bandwidth, improve voice call quality, enable use of personal devices, and more – providing a better Jet ConneX experience for SD customers than is available with other providers. And, all customers receive SD’s 24/7 world-class support.
“We are proud to be the first to make Jet ConneX available to customers. This is an unprecedented opportunity for Jet ConneX-ready aircraft operators to take advantage of the fastest data speeds available to business aviation,” said David Greenhill, President of SD.
“We congratulate Satcom Direct on this exciting milestone. Jet ConneX is transforming in-flight connectivity for the business aviation industry, offering a reliable, high-speed and global service with Committed Information Rates (CIRs) in all coverage areas, which is an important differentiator in the market,” said Kurt Weidemeyer, Inmarsat VP Business Aviation.
SD is also an authorized GX value added reseller for U.S. government aviation and enterprise markets.
