ARINC, of Annapolis, Md., said it completed the first integration and testing of eXchange with Service by SKYLinkSM on a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ). The system inclubes Rockwell Collins’ eXchange satellite broadband avionics with ARINC’s SKYLink Ku-band satellite service. The system supports UMA voice calling, access to e-mail and corporate intranet, the Internet, Voice over IP (VoIP) global telephone service, and videoconferencing. According to ARINC, in an industry first, the system includes a terminal wireless LAN unit (TWLU) as a wireless bridge from the aircraft cabin LAN to ground-based public and private networks, enabling 802.11a/b/g data transfers when a ground based 802.11a/b/g network is located for use.
