TriaGnoSys: Triagnosys Satellite Communications Software selected by Thales for new Inflight Internet Service
Hamburg - April 02, 2008
TriaGnoSys today announced that it
has been selected by Thales for its new inflight broadband Internet
connectivity solution, specifically designed for the high-growth
business and regional jet markets. TriaGnoSys, the aviation satellite
communications specialist, will provide the satellite communications
management and billing processes to make inflight Internet connectivity
an economically viable option for smaller aircraft.
The Thales/TriaGnoSys inflight connectivity solution is the first cabin
Internet connectivity solution purpose-designed for the space
constraints associated with smaller aircraft of up to 110 seats. The
solution is not only compact and lightweight but also benefits from the
cost-efficiencies and high bandwidth capabilities of Inmarsat's
SwiftBroadband technology. In addition, the system uses a modem that
can provide multiple channels, further improving both performance and
The new inflight connectivity solution will provide business and
regional aircraft passengers with the ability to use their laptops to
access the Internet at broadband speeds via a WiFi connection, as well
as access other multimedia services including printers and fax machines
running on the TopSeries platform.
Dr Axel Jahn, Managing Director of TriaGnoSys, said, "This new Internet
service significantly widens the inflight connectivity options for
business and regional jet airframe manufacturers, as well as owners and
operators. The competitive costs of buying and installing the
equipment, which can be either line- or retro-fitted, and running the
service, make it a must-have' option for business travellers and an
important ancillary revenue opportunity for regional airlines."
Jahn continued, "The satellite communications software we have
developed uses unique compression technology to minimise bandwidth
requirements and at the same time to maximise outward and inward bound
traffic via Inmarsat's SwiftBroadband satellite service."
The solution incorporates PlaneBill billing technology, also supplied
by TriaGnoSys, which offers a range of payment options, including pay
as you go or fixed-rate billing options payable by credit card as well
as pre-paid authenticated access either for individuals or for those
working within a corporate network.
