In-Flight Connectivity To Improve, Be Just Like At Home
As reported by MarketWatch, Honeywell recently acquired EMS Technologies, Inc., a company with broad technology offerings and will combine them with Honeywell's global aerospace franchise to launch the Inmarsat Global Xpress aerospace network.
"With this new service, the flow of information will no longer stop when the door to the aircraft closes," said Tim Mahoney, President and CEO, Honeywell Aerospace.
By the year 2016, there will be 10 billion mobile devices in the world serving a global population of over 7 billion people, many of which will take to the sky when traveling. Those travelers will be using tablets and smartphones for working on the go and watching video.
"We believe this new network will significantly expand the connectivity options of consumer, business, and government customers around the world," added Mahoney.
