Cabin Routers

Manage all onboard communications for the best connectivity experience and collect key aircraft performance data to enhance flight operations.

The Best Inflight Internet Experience

The Satcom Direct Router (SDR®) and Gateway allow you to manage all onboard communications enabled on the aircraft: L, Ku, and Ka-band satellite, 4G/LTE, and Wi-Fi.  Advanced optimization and customization of the onboard network delivers the best inflight internet experience for pilots and passengers to stay productive on their devices at every altitude. And seamless switching between your satellite network in flight and cellular networks on the ground ensure the most cost-effective communications.

Beyond the cabin, the SDR collects aircraft performance data for integration into flight operations management tools, including telemetry and position data, fuel indications, and operational parameters. Flight operations teams have complete, real-time visibility of onboard network use and performance in the SDR module of our SD Pro communications and operations platform. And complete control over network management to optimize use of bandwidth.
