Satcom Direct Router (SDR) Overview
The Satcom Direct Router (SDR) is Satcom Direct’s first certified hardware product.
The SDR is a next-generation aircraft network router that simplifies cabin communications and allows simultaneous use of multiple satellite connections.
It is satellite ready for L-Band, Ku-Band, Ka-Band, and X-Band communications.
Using intelligent traffic control, the SDR allows multiple systems to operate on the aircraft without additional wireless access points, creating the
ability for separate guest or dedicated VVIP networks. While on the ground, 3G/4G connectivity is possible through the SDR, and data plans for domestic
and global roaming with the SDR’s Dual-SIM module are available to provide the best roaming rates around the world.
The SDR also supports mobile applications for on-board cabin services such as a moving map and Flight Tracker, command and control of satellite links,
and real-time connection status reporting.
The SDR currently works with Inmarsat SwiftBroadband and Swift 64 systems from Cobham/Thrane & Thrane, Honeywell/EMS, and Rockwell Collins.
It also supports ViaSat Yonder® Ku-Band and is designed to work with Inmarsat’s upcoming Global Xpress Ka-Band Service.
