Rockwell Collins has announced that the performance of Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX (JX) network has been validated for performance as well as a number of its own value-added services, in a series of recent network tests.
The Jet ConneX service is expected to be available globally in mid-2016 and is offered by Rockwell Collins as part of its ARINCDirectSM offering.
“JX from Inmarsat is poised to provide business jet passengers with the highest connectivity speeds available,” said David Stanley, vice president, ARINCDirect Cabin Services for Rockwell Collins. “Along with higher speeds and greater bandwidth, we are excited to offer a number of value-added applications that will enhance the passenger experience even further.”
Rockwell Collins’ ARINCDirect now offers a number of new services such as: AD Wi-Fi call and text, where an app that makes use of the aircraft’s broadband service, allows passengers to make and receive calls and texts on their personal cell phone, using their own number, anywhere in the world.
The ARINCDirect Content Filter allows Jet ConneX operators to control the onboard Internet experience by allowing the freedom to customize a filtering program to meet a passenger's particular needs.
