[Avionics Today 05-31-2016] Satcom Direct (SD) claims it is the first to activate Jet ConneX service for business aviation customers over the entire Global Xpress (GX) network. Jet ConneX is the high-speed broadband service for business aviation that operates over Inmarsat’s new GX constellation. Now available to customers, it delivers 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.
SD can now provision and activate Jet ConneX aboard new aircraft. The company is also an authorized GX value added reseller for U.S. government aviation and enterprise markets.
