Panasonic Avionics Corporation, provider of in-flight entertainment and communications (IFEC) solutions, secured additional Ku-band capacity on Asia Satellite Telecommunications (AsiaSat)'s AsiaSat 5 to support global communications services.
This new capacity will aide in-flight connectivity service for aircraft flying routes over the Middle East and India.
“The Middle East and India are two extremely strategic markets for Panasonic and our Global Communications Service, and we are very excited to have secured even more transponder space on AsiaSat 5,” said David Bruner, Vice President of Panasonic Avionics Corporation’s Global Communications Service. “As we continue to equip more and more aircraft that fly routes over these key, very high traffic markets, we will add the capacity and coverage necessary to ensure the industry’s highest bandwidth at the lowest possible price.”
Panasonic’s Global Communications Service includes eXConnect, eXPhone and eXTV.
