EMTEQ Expands eConnect Portfolio
Press release date: March 12, 2014
Installed on Nine Platforms with FAA, EASA, and TCCA Certifications Available
New Berlin, Wis., USA – Introduced in 2012, EMTEQ's eConnect system has been successfully installed on over nine platforms ranging from very light jets and large business jets – including Legacy 600, Global XRS, CRJ-200 aircraft – to narrow-body airliners including Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft.
"EMTEQ's eConnect system fills a gap in the market for customers that want short downtimes and low cost HD upgrades," shared Kariann Thon, EMTEQ's Corporate Business Development Manager. "Customers are responding very positively to the flexibility of our system."
eConnect's suite of solutions provides many flexible options for installation including EASYHD™ by eConnect and Connectivity by eConnect in as little as 2-6 weeks.
EASYHD™ by eConnect brings high definition to the aircraft through a cost effective upgrade integrating into the existing system or through adding new equipment. It provides wireless control through personal electronic devices including wireless AVOD options.
Connectivity by eConnect is a wireless router allowing access to the aircraft's SATCOM system throughout the cabin with advanced business applications and software for increased throughput and decreased data costs.
In addition to aftermarket EASYHD and Connectivity upgrades for business aircraft, eConnect has been installed as a lighting controller on multiple airliners, and is the selected CMS/IFE system for upcoming OEM production programs.
eConnect has received FAA, EASA, and TCCA certifications for installation on multiple platforms with several additional certifications pending. Certifications have been completed by EMTEQ's engineering & certification teams, as well as by third parties installing the system.
A recent certification was completed by RUAG Aerospace Services GmbH for a dual channel Swift Broadband upgrade including EMTEQ's eConnect Wi-Fi Router and Satcom1 AvioIP communication software enabling advanced communication features on a Bombardier Global. This upgrade was certified under EASA STC with FAA and TCCA approvals. More information on this upgrade can be found at www.sofia.aero under approval number 360C-CN.
EMTEQ is currently offering their eConnect Plus Program, introduced in 2013, which provides equipment discounts, enhanced customer service, and STC incentives for eConnect installations on new platforms. For more information contact EMTEQ as firstname.lastname@example.org.
