Inmarsat’s Global Xpress delivers seamless, globally available high-speed broadband connectivity anywhere you fly, from one operator. It is the first high-speed broadband satellite network to span the world changing the paradigm for business aviation communications.
The GX constellation is a network of three Ka-band, high-speed, mobile broadband communication satellites. The three satellites provide the coverage required to deliver global services. Global Xpress is the Ka-band technology that supports Jet ConneX.

Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband provides global voice and high-speed data, simultaneously through a single installation on the aircraft. This has established SwiftBroadband as the fastest growing Inmarsat aeronautical service ever introduced.
SwiftBroadband 200 is a single channel system, offering high-quality voice plus ‘always-on’ data at up to 200 kbps per channel and guaranteed streaming rates of up to 32 kbps. Four additional voice channels are also available via Inmarsat’s multi-voice service. All voice services can be used simultaneously with packet switched data services.

Swift 64 delivers high-quality voice and circuit-switched Mobile ISDN data. The service offers ‘always-on’ data at up to 64kbps per channel, ample bandwidth for flight planning, weather and chart updates.

With the availability of Aero H+ and Aero I on both Inmarsat-3 (I-3) and Inmarsat-4 (I-4) satellites, SwiftBroadband users are able to concurrently use SwiftBroadband and safety services.
Aero H provides packet data rates of up to 10.5kbps for ACARS, FANS and ATN communications and up to 9.6kbps per channel for multi-channel voice, fax and data communications, through a highgain antenna – anywhere in the global beams of the I-3 satellites. Applications include passenger, operational, administrative and safety communications.
Aero H+ offers all the features of Aero H, but uses the I-3 regional spot beams and 4.8kbps voice codecs to deliver voice services at lower cost. Outside the regional spot beams, Aero H+ terminals operate in the global beams in the same way as standard Aero H systems. Aero H+ is also available in the full I-4 satellite footprint.
Aero I uses intermediate-gain antennas and supports I-3 global beam packet data and I-3 regional beam, multi-channel voice and 4.8kbps circuit-mode data services. Aero I packet data is also available in the full I-4 footprint.
