Featuring a unique dual phased-array antenna, 2Ku provides superior performance – enabling new experiences for passengers and crew. Key features and benefits › Next-generation modem enhances performance, delivering peak speeds up to 70+ Mbps to the aircraft › Unique antenna design with 4x more surface area resulting in dramatically better performance especially in equatorial regions › Industry-leading speeds support video streaming › Over 180 Ku satellites deliver redundant gate-to-gate coverage around the globe › With more capacity from more satellites, a Ku band system delivers greater bandwidth, consistency, and reliability than a Ka band system

COVERAGE

SwiftBroadband operates over Inmarsat’s I-4 satellite constellation, covering all major aviation routes, and every hidden island getaway, worldwide. 

Each I-4 satellite combines 228 spot beams with 19 wide beams; capable of providing up to four channels of 432Kbps to a High Gain Antenna. The three I-4 satellites are complemented by Alphasat, which provides additional capacity of over 33% of the I-4 coverage area. Two further L-band payloads are scheduled for the early 2020s on the I-6 constellation.

HARDWARE

The lightweight JetWave MCS 8X00 system is offered exclusively from Honeywell. The system consists of four major components:

  • Antenna controller to accurately point the antenna to the satellite
  • RF unit to blast the data through space
  • Modem to process the incoming and outgoing data
  • Either a fuselage or tail mounted antenna to direct the data to and from the satellite
