Satcom Direct does more than keep our customers connected at every altitude. Via the SD Private Network, we bring an unparalleled level of security and reliability to every product and service we offer. The SD Private Network is a global communications framework that interconnects with satellite and air-to-ground connectivity providers via the SD Data Center and its multiple points of presence (POPs), worldwide. This allows the application of SD proprietary value-added services to improve data speeds, create seamless transitions between ground-based and airborne communications networks, filter unwanted data transmissions to and from the aircraft, and enable the use of computers and personal devices in-flight, just like on the ground. Because of these enhancements, you get a better user experience than any other service provider can offer, even over the same satellite or air-to-ground network.
With POPs located in the US and Europe, we can offer flexible routing and addressing options to meet various corporate policies and regulatory requirements.
The SD Private Network infrastructure is constantly monitored to ensure 100% uptime. The latest IT security and best practices are applied and maintained to meet the compliance requirements for numerous industries. Our in-house network security experts stay ahead of evolving security threats and proactively monitor network activity so that we can identify and block intrusion attempts in real-time.
All SD customers using SD products and services automatically get the benefit of the unique architecture of the SD Private Network — SD Custom Routing offers an added level of protection and control. By selecting SD Custom Routing, all of your airborne data traffic can be delivered from the connectivity provider directly to your corporate network, bypassing their public routing and the internet.
You can then apply your corporate security policies to handle, block, or deliver information according to your specifications. SD Custom Routing gives you the ability to make your aircraft on-board network operate as an extension of your corporate office.
