Satellite Communication News by Satcom1

07/11/2013 - Issue #2

From The CEO


Dear Customers, Potential Customers and Partners,

It was a true pleasure to be at NBAA this year. It seems to be the best show in eight years in terms of the number of visitors and exhibitors. The Satcom1 team was proud to be announcing that we have formalized to become a reseller of Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) airtime, and a partner of Honeywell, who is the exclusive hardware manufacture for Inmarsat GX. Satcom1 is excited to bring GX to the market in Q1, 2015 with Honeywell and Inmarsat, because we know our customer base has been requesting maximum bandwidth capacity for many years. This opens opportunities for Satcom1 R&D team to continue delivering new services requested by our customers to the market.

Satcom1 signed a contract with Mr. Scott Trainium, CEO International Communication Group (ICG) to deliver our software suite AvioIP licence to their brand new router (eRouter ERT-120), which combines communication and router features for: Inmarsat/Iridium communication, 3G/4G on-ground communication and much more to manage the onboard network and with launch customers already signed.

Our partners – Vision Systems, EMTEQ and Aviation Modification Leaders (AML) were also exhibiting at NBAA this year. Vision Systems have completed their first install of VisiConnect, which combines IFE/CSM and router management. AML have gone live with their router for a P180 program, and EMTEQ has installed their first eConnect on a Bombardier aircraft. All our partners were busy at NBAA, and we are sure that different hardware platforms will match the end-users communication requirements in the air today.

Around the Dubai Airshow (November 17-21st), Satcom1 is launching our brand new website with new features to assist our customers to get their satcom network upgraded for existing or brand new aircraft. This includes online services to request new C-check upgrades. We are excited to see you at Dubai Airshow - Booth #2745.

Yours sincerely,

Karina Larsen

New Update on “AvioPhone” for iPhone 5 in APP Store

Updated and improved version of AvioPhone APP for iPhone5 usage is now available in APP store to use your Iphone, if you have a router with Satcom1 AvioIP router software suite from either of these manufactures; ICG, Cobham, EMTEQ, AES, AML or Vision Systems onboard combined with standard Swiftbroadband service.

What is the benefit of AvioPhone APP? Many VVIP customers do not want to have an APP which can risk of disconnecting while talking. With AvioPhone combined with a router which includes AvioIP, the customer is guaranteed VoIP and that avoids any disruptions during calls.
