Scalable Telecommunications System Incorporates HD Voice, Wi-Fi, Hi-Speed Data
TrueNorth Avionics has announced its selection by AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland, to provide its scalable Simphone OpenCabin airborne telecommunications system for an Airbus ACJ A319 VIP Aircraft.
TrueNorth’s Simphone OpenCabin system offers such capabilities as Wi-Fi, high-speed data integration, fax, HD Voice, and corded and cordless handsets with credit card readers, along with worldwide Iridium , Inmarsat, and high-speed Ku & Ka Satcom. This follows AMAC’s initial selection of a TrueNorth Simphone OpenCabin solution for their completion of a Boeing 777 VIP aircraft.
“We’re very excited that AMAC Aerospace has determined that TrueNorth, is the ideal choice for their Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) and Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) completion projects” said Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth’s president and CEO.
A revolutionary software-centric system, the Simphone (pronounced ‘symphony’) OpenCabin system brings an unprecedented degree of reliability, operator control and
communications capabilities to business aviation. Since existing airborne telecom systems were heavy, complex, expensive to install and operate, and prone to obsolescence, TrueNorth developed a solution that addressed all those concerns, with benefits that include robust performance, an unlimited lifespan, significant long-term cost savings, and the ability to easily add a wide variety of custom features.
