Honeywell unveiled GoDirect Cabin Connectivity, a suite of services and mobile applications that helps business jet owners and operators more easily manage and control their satellite communications services and usage. By providing operators with the tools needed to manage an aircraft’s connectivity network via an online portal or mobile device, Honeywell has limited the need for third-party services support and put operators in control of network troubleshooting, access, data consumption, billing and more.
The proliferation of mobile devices, software as a service, and increased productivity and comfort demands from passengers has changed the business aviation landscape. Reliable, high-speed connectivity is a growing expenditure for aircraft operators, yet it’s become mandatory for them to provide fast and consistent inflight coverage — while still managing overall cost of ownership. Honeywell’s new GoDirect Cabin Connectivity makes this easy by allowing operators to more effectively manage cabin connectivity services. The services give operators flexibility with and visibility into their current wireless services to make troubleshooting, networking and onboard data management an easy process that can save time and money.
“Expectations of fast and consistent connections are second nature in the minds of passengers. Troubleshooting support issues for in-flight systems has grown so complex, so it is important that operators can access all the services and support they need from a single provider,” said John Peterson, director, Customer and Product Support, Honeywell Aerospace.
“Managing data consumption is especially important when someone other than the principle is using the aircraft. The new services such as GoDirect Access and GoDirect Portal can easily set data consumption limits to manage costs. The best feature of GoDirect Cabin Connectivity is when the principle is using the aircraft, they can revert back to unrestricted access to data with the click of a button,” Peterson said.
Seamless Connectivity Management
GoDirect Cabin Connectivity makes end-to-end management and support of services and connectivity easy. Included in the mobile applications, software upgrades, services and online tools are the following:
Honeywell GoDirect Portal and GoDirect Access. These are web-based services that integrate with Honeywell’s apps to broaden an operator’s level of control of the cabin, providing visibility into the data consumption of each aircraft in the fleet while employing advanced forecasting tools to understand how passenger and crew behavior affects connectivity cost and budgeting. Operators can now manage passenger access and
Honeywell continues to expand its expertise and offerings in end-to-end satellite communications and cabin management with services suites like GoDirect Cabin Connectivity. GoDirect Cabin Connectivity is available now through the Apple App Store.
