SwiftBroadband Products

Flexible IP connectivity

In today’s “always connected” world, the expectation to communicate just as well in the air as you can on the ground is growing. SwiftBroadband is designed to meet the demand for more bandwidth across all areas of aviation – as well as delivering the same high-quality voice communications that are customary from Inmarsat.

Enhanced data services

SwiftBroadband allows more simultaneous users and more demanding applications. Rates can be increased further by using parallel channels and data compression. It supports both IP and circuit-switched applications, with a choice between contended services and data streaming on demand.
