There are many things to be said about this new high tech era we live in. It is constantly changing and evolving and it seems to offer more speed and performance in smaller packages each year. Cabin connectivity is no different. At one point in our history, there was only one source of network connectivity that gave us double-digit kilobits per second performance. Today we have many options to choose from that offer double-digit megabits per second for network connectivity. Competition for the cabin business is at an all-time high. ARINCDirect works with multiple satellite service providers to find the service that best fits your needs. Whether you fly daily or just occasionally, internet services can be enabled to fit your budget and needs.
Today, we would like to highlight the Jet ConneX service from Inmarsat. The JX service operates over four KA satellites around the world providing widespread coverage for Aviation, Government, Enterprise, and Maritime. Furthermore, Inmarsat is planning to launch eight satellites over the next few years to have twelve total satellites operating by 2023.
