Aircom Pacific to Develop Ka-Band Solution for High Speed Internet Access in Airbus Planes

Aircom Pacific, a subsidiary of Aerkomm, is developing a new and innovative Ka-band solution for the provision of broadband voice and high-speed internet access for passengers in Airbus ACJ319s, ACJ320s and ACJ321s as well as commercial equivalents.

Called Aerkomm K++, the solution will offer a broadband rate of 20 Megabits/sec experience per passenger. It will combine Aircom Pacific's equipment – based on a low-profile antenna – with a retrofit installation designed and implemented by Airbus to EASA and FAA certification standards, which will also be validated by China CAAC.

Aerkomm K++ will provide worldwide coverage including, specifically, within China for Chinese registered aircraft.
