In Flight Connectivity

Solutions that enable communications services at 30,000ft

In-flight connectivity provided by air-to-ground and satellite networks offers airline passengers on domestic and long-haul flights the opportunity to get online at above 30,000 feet.

With the proliferation of Wi-Fi enabled devices and the demand for access to valued data services well established, the revenue potential for in-flight connectivity services is uncapped.

Delivering a service that allows passengers to remain connected at 600mph and thousands of feet involves many interconnected systems and processes to ensure accessibility, reliability and value for money. MDS integrated managed BSS solutions support flexible pricing, billing and payment models that enable delivery of premium services to customers at their convenience. Further, embedded business assurance analytics solutions can help to promote a positive customer experience, enable swift and secure payments, and ensure that service delivery processes are optimised and operating as intended.
