Global Eagle Expands Airline Connectivity with Hughes Jupiter Tech
Hughes Network Systems and Global Eagle Entertainment announced two major enhancements to Global Eagle’s connectivity network. First, the Hughes Jupiter aeronautical system is being deployed to support continued expansion of Global Eagle’s airline connectivity customers worldwide, and the second is a continued expansion of the network in North America. Global Eagle’s first deployment of the Jupiter Aero system will be in support of international airline routes, with plans to expand.
Hughes and Global Eagle also are working together to increase the bandwidth and performance delivered to a yet-named North American airline and its passengers. The expansion consists of both additional ground-based gateway terminals and associated infrastructure as well as a significant increase in satellite capacity allocated to the service.
