OnAir to offer key inflight mobile solution
Las Vegas, October 11, 2011
OnAir and mobile specialist TriaGnoSys have signed a formal agreement to offer a unique one-stop-shop for the world’s leading inflight mobile phone services provider, combined with the smallest and lightest airborne hardware.
The solution will be fitted on Dasnair’s Falcon 7X aircraft, as released in May, with a growing number of undisclosed customers to start installation in the coming months.
OnAir and TriaGnoSys have subjected the complete solution to rigorous testing, both in the lab and over satellite, resulting in a fully integrated turnkey system that can be installed on any aircraft type. It allows passengers to use their mobile devices for calls, text messaging, email and to access the Internet.
Ian Dawkins, OnAir CEO, said, “The combination of OnAir’s global mobile phone service and TriaGnoSys’ airborne hardware is unique. We have the widest geographic reach of any inflight mobile phone service provider and the equipment is sufficiently flexible to be fitted to any plane and to meet all customer requirements. That means it is suitable for all types of aircraft.”
The mobile phone solution uses Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, which provides consistent global coverage, as well as a clear upgrade path to Global Xpress, Inmarsat’s global Ka-band solution.
Axel Jahn, TriaGnoSys managing director, said, “The hardware has been designed specifically for the business jet market: it is small, lightweight and very simple to install.”
“It is scalable and can be used for a wide range of appealing passenger applications, services and entertainment,” Jahn added. – TradeArabia News Service
