Bombardier's Service Centre Network team is to provide
hardware sales and installations for SmartSky 4G, a new network
taking flight later this year.
SmartSky's patented 4G beamforming technology
delivers a signal that locks onto an aircraft, and by using 60 MHz
of spectrum on an air-to-ground (ATG) platform, provides
full-throttle, unrestricted access to the internet.
Bombardier will offer SmartSky 4G on in-service Bombardier
Learjet, Challenger and Global business aircraft over the
continental U.S., and it will complement Bombardier WAVE, which
enables internet connectivity on Global aircraft with seamless
coverage across the globe through a dedicated satellite network.
"We take great
pride in welcoming Bombardier, a proven industry leader, to our
team and to the inflight connectivity revolution our 4G network
represents," said SmartSky Networks President, Ryan Stone. "SmartSky
4G is the only inflight network capable of offering services in
which bi-directional high bandwidth and low latency are essential.
That includes two-way streaming video or support of new advanced
applications optimized to take advantage of ultrafast
Satcom Direct serves as SmartSky's
exclusive customer service and support provider.
