More France IP Communications Stories
June 21, 2011
The Paris based company Eclipse has created a new channel aggregation ability for the eNfusion CNX 200 Network Accelerator by EMS Aviation. The new channel capabilities come to a company that has already established itself in the industry and is a division of the leading mobile connectivity provider, EMS Technologies (News - Alert), Inc. With a grand debut at the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget in France, the new and robust solution from Eclipse will provide users with the ability to yield data rates of 700 kbps and the capability of maximizing the performance of the communications service of the Inmarsat (News - Alert) SwiftBroadband Satellite.
In a release, the Vice President and General Manager at EMS Aviation, John Jarrell, said, “The CNX-200 product's new capability is designed to allow users who currently bond Swift (News - Alert) 64 ISDN channels to obtain the same data rates that they would get while using SwiftBroadband IP channels. The demand for bandwidth, particularly in airborne military communications applications, is insatiable and this new solution offers yet another reason to upgrade to SwiftBroadband. By combining the two channels, users can access the bandwidth that is required for mission critical applications, such as tactical streaming video and real-time rapid transmission of very large files."
The aggregation software based in the Inmarsat ground earth station or GES in the customer premises and the updated EMS Aviation’s CNX-200 Network Accelerator are the two components of the aggregation solution from the EMX Aviation eNfusion HSD-400 High Speed Data Transceiver. The solution is available only through the Eclipse service provider from August of this year. This unique system allows the combination of asymmetrical bandwidths to enable end users to create transmission data rates that are customizable to fit specific mission applications.
The CEO of Eclipse, Marc Pinault, said,“The advent of two channels of SwiftBroadband connectivity on an aircraft is an important enabler, but the ability to combine the two streaming channels offers a significant mission advantage. Eclipse has been working with EMS and the CNX for many years and we are pleased to develop solutions that give end-users the ability to make the most of their airborne communications resources and accomplish their missions."
