Gogo Business Aviation goes global with High-Speed Satellite Connectivity Service

Posted 20 September 2017 · Add Comment

Gogo Business Aviation is expanding its reach to become a global provider with the announcement of a high throughput satellite service for business aviation.

The new service will utilise Gogo’s existing Ku-band satellite network, the same trusted high capacity satellite network that is currently providing bandwidth for more than 550 commercial aviation aircraft across 10 airlines globally.

Gogo is currently bringing additional HTS (high throughput satellite) capacity online as part of its global satellite network, which will boost the performance of both its new business aviation Ku solution and its commercial aviation network solutions. Service is expected to be available in the second half of 2018.

“Gogo’s Ku satellite service will deliver a superior experience to anything else in the market today for anyone flying globally on business jets,” said Sergio Aguirre, senior vice president and general manager for Gogo Business Aviation. “Our customers’ hunger for data continues to increase and Gogo is ready to meet those needs on a global scale. While satellite networks used by competitors are designed and built for multiple markets including maritime, our network is designed for and fully dedicated to aviation, which will result in greater capacity and a better overall inflight Wi-Fi experience. And for those who fly internationally in and out of the U.S., Gogo Ku will be the perfect complement to the Gogo Biz 4G air-to-ground network – one comprehensive solution from one provider.”

The Gogo network can leverage an open ecosystem of more than 100 satellites for built-in redundancy. As demand for bandwidth increases, Gogo can leverage the growing network of Ku satellites to ensure customers can access increased capacity. And Gogo can add capacity more economically than other providers who can only add capacity by launching new satellites.

Gogo Ku will deliver reliable, redundant coverage around the globe with streaming-class internet, and service from takeoff to landing. It provides fast web browsing and other activities such as live streaming video and audio, on-demand movies, large file downloads, personal smartphone use, real-time data for cockpit apps, and remote diagnostics and support while in flight.

The primary components of the onboard system include a tail-mounted antenna, and hardware that is compatible with the Gogo AVANCE platform. With an open architecture that leverages current and future high throughput Ku satellites, Gogo Ku offers unrivaled adaptability to keep aircraft connected now and in the future.
