Aviation Solutions

Today, one in four passengers would choose one airline over another if it offered Wi-Fi connectivity. And with 97% of passengers carrying internet accessible devices when they travel, passenger loyalty can be affected when there is no access to Wi-Fi during a flight. As more consumers expect today’s high-tech conveniences to follow them at 30,000 feet, airlines find themselves with an urgent opportunity to differentiate their brands with robust and reliable in-flight Internet access.

As technology and user requirements continue to drive the expectations for connectivity, how can you ensure you have access to the capacity required to keep pace with growing demand?

Intelsat’s robust aviation solutions have been designed to support the demands of your most complex mobility applications. You can increase your operational efficiencies as well as access a wide portfolio of products to provide constant connectivity in-flight. Whether you build and maintain your own networks and only require space capacity or are looking for a fully managed solution, Intelsat provides you with optimum solutions for coverage, throughput, service delivery and economics.

At Intelsat, we believe in enabling connectivity anywhere in the world. Our powerful C- and Ku-band global mobility beams provide you with always-on broadband connectivity that rivals any land-based networks. Automatic beam switching (ABS) allows for seamless transfer from one satellite to another while maintaining connectivity with continuous provisioning of the service.

Designed as an overlay to the existing networks, the Intelsat EpicNG platform uses focused spot beams in key aviation routes to meet your high throughput and performance needs. Intelsat EpicNG’s open architecture and backward compatibility provides you with improved performance over your existing hardware or the ability to customize your technology based on the application. It is also forward compatible with the next generation of light-weight, low-profile phased arrays antennas that Intelsat is developing with its partners.
