[Avionics Today 05-05-2015] Honeywell Aerospace has released the new CNX-250 multifunction router, enabling aircraft to connect to a cellular network while on the ground and transition to a satellite connection while in flight. The new router enables connectivity to a variety of network sources rather than exclusively to a satellite communications network, giving operators and maintenance personnel the flexibility to always stay connected.
“In addition to consistent in-flight Wi-Fi, the new CNX-250 router means an aircraft doesn’t have to taxi outside the hangar for connectivity when Wi-Fi is required for ground maintenance operations,” said Rebecca Sidelinger, senior director of marketing and product management at Honeywell Aerospace.
Honeywell will be working with TrueNorth Avionics to provide the new CNX-250 product to business jet operators around the world. The new product will be available through Honeywell’s global network of authorized dealers and service centers.
