Satcom Direct is integrating the Exinda Mobile platform into the Satcom Direct Router (SDR). The first Satcom hardware product, the SDR can serve as a Wi-Fi access point on an airplane. The Exinda Mobile platform, which is integrated into the SDR, will enhance the data user experience for aircraft passengers by improving the consistency and response time of Internet applications.
Business professionals, executives, and government officials are spending more and more time traveling aboard aircraft. This led to the spread of the ‘office in the sky’ mindset, the corresponding need for constant connectivity during flights, and the desire for in-flight Internet user experience equal to the quality found in terrestrial offices. SDR aims to deliver such an enhanced in-flight Internet experience via the integrated Exinda Mobile platform.
Exinda is the sole solution currently available on the market that can apply collaborative caching and apply traffic acceleration according to the location of the user. It does not need extra hardware or reconfiguration of the entire satellite communications network in order to improve the performance of applications.
The Exinda Mobile platform enables faster applications, improves remote collaboration, saves massive amounts of bandwidth, and provides high-speed connectivity and a reliable experience for users regardless of location.
