CHICAGO - Gogo's 2Ku has exceeded speeds of 100 Mbps. Theperformance was achieved on Gogo's test aircraft, the Jimmy Ray, using Gogo's proprietary 2Ku antenna, Gogo's new next generation modem and a high-throughput satellite. 2Ku's open architecture allows Gogo to take advantage of satellite innovations over time. Gogo has continued to improve its aircraft hardware servers, modems, antenna, and wireless access points.

Gogo's new modem upgrades the performance of both its 2Ku and Ku global satellite services. The proprietary features of the new modem significantly increase throughput and reliability to and from the aircraft. The modem also will support access to streaming video through the internet and live television programming through Gogo's IPTV product, Gogo TV.

There are now more than 100 2Ku aircraft flying with Gogo's first-generation modem utilizing existing wide-beam satellite technologies. Gogo plans to deliver the new technology upgrade to its airline partners without needing to take an aircraft out of service.

The new modem will be installed beginning in the second half of 2017. Eventually, it will be installed on more than 1500 2Ku and 250 Ku aircraft across 13 airlines.

OEMs require their suppliers and sub-contractors to comply with the certification, while for customers, it represents increased assurance and satisfaction.

"The EN9100 certification is a testament to our dedication to continuous improvement in quality across all areas of Completions in Basel," said Neil Boyle senior vice president and general manager Jet Aviation Completions in Basel.

LONDON - Inmarsat and strategic technology partner VT iDirect have achieved a significant advance in the on-going development of Global Xpress (GX).

Over-the-air tests of iDirect’s next-generation DVB-S2X transmission technology achieved a forward channel throughput rate of 330 Mbps over a live Inmarsat GX satellite in orbit. The successful tests were conducted in January 2017 and used iDirect’s next-generation iQ Series modem.

Global Xpress, Inmarsat’s high-speed, global, mobile broadband platform, entered global commercial service at the end of 2015 and has already been adopted by major private and public sector organisations across the world as their new standard for seamless, reliable broadband connectivity.

Global Xpress is a key enabler for the replacement of what Inmarsat describes as expensive airline InFlight-Entertainment systems (IFE), with more capable, lightweight, connected streaming solutions that ensure all passengers on even the largest widebody aircraft can access streaming simultaneously.

The In-Flight Wi-Fi and IFE market is extremely competitive, with new technologies constantly threatening to shake up the market segment. The constantly evolving market is driven by increasing international consumer expectations of cheap, or even free high speed Wi-Fi connectivity.
