Bombardier and Honeywell Completing Validation of High-Speed Wi-Fi for Global


Bombardier used the occasion of NBAA to announce Bombardier Wave, an Internet connectivity product “featuring the fastest Internet connectivity worldwide. The manufacturer along with Honeywell and Inmarsat brought Star Trek star, actor and television celebrity William Shatner to tell about his test of the system. Shatner said he utilitzed the product to upload and work on a copy of his new documentary featuring Shatner on a 2,400-mile, cross-country trip on Route 66 that he hitchhiked while on his initial trip to Hollywood. He said he made the documentary to raise awareness for the American Legion, a wartime veteran organization that helps military members and their families.
Bombardier says WAVE enables video conferencing and movie streaming and has multiple data package options available. The intent of the product is to help passengers “be as productive in-flight as in the office.”
The system is powered by Honeywell’s JetWave hardware and Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX service. Bombardier says WAVE is currently available for new Global 5000, Global 6000, Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft, as well as for retrofit on in-service Global Express, Global Express XRS, Global 5000 and Global 6000 business jets.
Bombardier WAVE has the following capabilities while in flight or on the ground, video conferencing, internet TV, high definition video streaming, video on demand, large file upload and download.
