New Berlin, Wis., USA – EMTEQ recently completed installations of EMTEQ's wireless N router for SATCOM connectivity, Router by eConnect™, onto an Embraer Legacy 600 and a Bombardier Global Express.
The Legacy 600 installation is approved under EASA with FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) and TCAA validation. This was the industry's first ever installation of 4 Inmarsat Swiftbroadband channels running on Cobham SATCOM SDU-7330 hardware unit onto a Legacy 600. During the SATCOM performance test on the aircraft, which took place on May 5th, in Prague, the crew and ALAMO's engineering team confirmed that they have been able to achieve a data-speed between 1200kbps and 1500kbps, which has never been achieved on Inmarsat Swiftbroadband before. This performance was possible thanks to Satcom1 dual Swiftbroadband Channel Aggregation and Acceleration technology, which is one of the features of Satcom1 AvioIP software suite installed on this Router by eConnect.
The Global Express installation is approved with EASA and FAA STC. AvioIP was installed on Router by eConnect™ for this installation to allow for unique features including: User Management (VIP and Guest service profiles interface to manage data bandwidth), Data Compression and Acceleration, Mode of Operation, and dual SwiftBroadband Channel Aggregation. "The combination of Router by eConnect and Satcom1 AvioIP software suite provides a true "office in the sky'' solution to the endusers." Greg Cornell eConnect™ Suite of Solutions Product Manager.
EMTEQ's wireless N router, Router by eConnect™, was able to support these installations through its flexible architecture and combination with Satcom1's AvioIP advanced software suite that allows access to high-speed connectivity for email, internet, and smart phone operations in flight, as well as provides unique features which guarantee high-quality VIP in-flight services including SwiftBroadband Channel Aggregation, Data Security Services, User Management and Mode of Operation amongst others.
The Legacy 600 and the Global Express installations add to the portfolio of STCs that EMTEQ continues to grow through the eConnect Plus Program, which provides equipment discounts, enhanced customer service and other incentives for eConnect installations on new platforms.
