[Avionics Today 06-15-2016] Panasonic Avionics has selected Arqiva, a communications infrastructure and media services company, to provide its hosting, connectivity and teleport uplink services via Telesat’s new High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Telstar 12 Vantage.
 
Through the multi-year contract Arqiva will enable PAC to deliver a range of mobility services for Panasonic, including in-flight Wi-Fi, which will operate around the clock from its Chalfont Grove teleport site near London. Signals are extended to the Panasonic Network over the Arqiva managed core network ArqNet, a 2.5 Tbps resilient transmission network.
 
Arqiva’s T12 Vantage 7.6 meter Earth station is configured to access the entire Telstar 12 Vantage frequency range and multiple beams.
