Via Satellite: A Roadmap for Incredible IFC
During the summer travel season, I won’t lie that In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) is at least one of the criteria my family uses to decide which airline we travel. And, while I’m the first one to pull out my devices and do a speed test, speed alone is not enough to have “incredible passenger Wi-Fi.” Few airlines have created a winning solution to both the very technical and business-centric problems around IFC — In short, because they frequently ask the most important question last. Instead, let NSR outline how airlines should think about deploying or expanding IFC.
Bottom line, regardless if you are an airline looking to adopt or improve onboard connectivity or a satcom vendor providing the solution — all answers should start at a simple question, “What is ‘incredible connectivity’ to my key stakeholders?”
