[Avionics Today 06-08-2015] XipLink, along with service partner Rockwell Collins ARINCDirect and routing technology partner International Communications Group, Inc. (ICG), announce the first production business aviation customers are now in service. The ARINCDirect service utilizes XipLink XA appliance gateways on the ground network while allowing two-way “bracketed” optimization to and from the aircraft via XipLink’s Virtual (XV) modules in the ICG eRouter Model ERT-120.
