Satcom Direct has announced it is the only organisation approved to provide activation, customer support and billing for the new airborne SmartSky Network.

This is the first airborne 4G LTE-based wireless network in the US.

SmartSky 4G is being launched by SmartSky Networks with the anticipated rollout of commercial service in 2016.

SmartSky’s patented technology will provide real-time business-grade connectivity with more than 10 times the typical speed and capacity of networks currently in the market by using 60 MHz of spectrum for its Air-To-Ground (ATG) data communications.

Satcom Direct will be the exclusive provider of SmartSky services for the business aviation community.

Jim Jensen, Satcom Direct founder and CEO, said: “As a company based on innovation, we’re pleased to be associated with this new technology. We pride ourselves on bringing new solutions to our customers, and SmartSky is a valuable addition to our portfolio.”

The Satcom Direct Router (SDR) is approved for use with SmartSky for those clients who want the added features and benefits available with the device.

The SDR allows passengers to manage all of the cabin communications systems onboard the aircraft including use of their own smartphones to talk and text during flight.

It also provides multiple WiFi access points (SSID) for passengers.

Satcom Direct is a leading provider of satellite voice and broadband data solutions for flight deck and cabin communications serving business, military, government, and heads of state aircraft.
