Bombardier Aircraft to Feature SmartSky 4G Service

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 connectivity."

Satcom Direct serves as SmartSky's exclusive customer service and support provider.
