The SDR series of products- the SDR and SDR Gateway - provides the ultimate flexibility in connectivity for the business jet cabin and future of airborne communications for owners, operators, passengers and crew. The SDR Series is designed to work seamlessly with passenger devices—current and future.
With SD Hardware onboard, you can make and receive calls, text, email, connect to the internet and stream data, using a combination of the best technology and services available, whenever and wherever you fly.
The SDR is a connectivity platform that optimizes the onboard internet experience, enabling laptops, tablets and smartphones to do their jobs so that you can stay productive at every altitude. Providing a secure and reliable wireless connection, passengers can make and receive calls, text, email, connect to the Internet and stream video, whenever and wherever you fly.
The advanced SDR technology automatically selects the best connection available - on the ground or in the air, always keeping you connected. Because it interfaces with onboard avionics, the SDR can extract operational data from the airplane, including telemetry and position data, providing useful aircraft performance information. This SDR also provides the platform to the full spectrum of SD’s value-added services for the cabin including GlobalVT® , which allows you to use your own smartphone in flight, with your own number and caller ID.
The SDR Gateway is a single configurable unit that lets purchasers tailor the system to fit specific requirements. Features range from simple voice capabilities to complete office capabilities—including popular telephony applications, 4G/LTE communications services, and aviation certified WiFi.
The SDR Gateway features advanced processing power for the high performance expected by aircraft owners and operators. It is lightweight, features small footprint for ease of installation, and has the same flexibility already built into our current systems.
The SDR Gateway’s small footprint and range of capabilities means more aircraft owners can benefit from inflight connectivity, including light- to medium-jets.
