Honeywell is expanding its industry-leading range of Connected Aircraft offerings and setting a new benchmark with the launch of its newest connectivity solution, the GoDirect™ Router. The router is roughly half the size and weight, and one-third the current price, of comparable products. By enabling redundant connectivity in an easy-to-install package, the new router offers the broadest and most secure set of features available.

The GoDirect Router maximizes available onboard Wi-Fi bandwidth and enables a reliable, in-flight wireless connection on any network, including Honeywell's own GoDirect Cabin services. Whether it is for commercial, general aviation, business aviation or the defense market, the router helps provide access to the fast and reliable connectivity that passengers, pilots and operators expect.

Because of its much smaller size, the GoDirect Router can be installed virtually anywhere in a plane, often in less than one hour. In addition, installing two routers next to each other provides a Wi-Fi backup and improves the reliability and quality of connectivity to users. With the attractive price of this product, operators can quickly and easily install a backup router without going over budget.

"Think of it like using a brand new tablet instead of a 15-year-old laptop," said John Peterson, senior director, Connectivity Services, Honeywell Aerospace. "The new GoDirect Router design is smaller and lighter weight, making it easier to install almost anywhere in the plane. That makes it more accessible for all kinds of aircraft. Just as important, it provides the capabilities pilots, owners and operators need to enable the Connected Aircraft. It gives them access to all kinds of unique data and services that increase safety while saving time and money."

The new router provides the same access to Honeywell's GoDirect software and services as on Honeywell's larger CNX-900, no matter the connectivity provider. Honeywell's customers will always have an industry-leading solution at their fingertips because the company provides two dedicated software releases every year. The new router will also include threat detection, increasing the security and privacy of the connection. The GoDirect Router is an upgrade for Honeywell's existing CNX-250, CNX-200 and other Satcom Direct routers and can be easily replaced in a short time.
