0

Shanghai, China | April 14, 2015– Satcom Direct will promote its new SwiftBroadband bonding and aggregation service during ABACE 2015, booth H231. Delegates will learn how the system provides a significant upgrade in airborne data speeds when using Cobham terminals.

Bonding and aggregation allows customers to combine multiple Inmarsat SwiftBroadband streaming channels to achieve higher data rates for real-time communications applications. Customers with compatible Cobham equipment can now bond two to four channels of service, delivering speeds of up to 1.4mbps of throughput for aircraft with four-channel systems.

“Bonding aggregates two to four channels together, providing a larger data pipe,” said Satcom Direct’s Ken Bantoft, vice president of technologies and development. “Now higher data rate applications like video conferencing and streaming video are feasible globally for our customers using Cobham equipment with SwiftBroadband, without needing additional equipment to be installed.”

Satcom Direct worked with Cobham to deliver this capability to its customers, deploying ground equipment to facilitate the service. No additional equipment is required by the operator beyond the Cobham system and SwiftBroadband service.

“We are pleased to deliver a bonding solution that will specifically enhance streaming applications. Satcom Direct is the first service provider to take advantage of this and Cobham is very happy to support them in offering this new, high data rate service capability,” said Andy Beers, director of aeronautical sales at Cobham SATCOM.
