KINGSTON MEDIASTREAM PROVIDE GATEWAY FACILITIES

KINGSTON MediaStream, one of the leading suppliers of advanced communications and broadcast solutions, have been chosen to provide gateway facilities for 'Connexion by Boeing’.
This project will eventually provide facilities to enable transatlantic passengers to watch real-time television and access the Internet direct from their airline seats. Kingston MediaStream have been chosen to provide gateway facilities for shows, demonstrations and tests and will contribute direct Internet POP access, routing, uplink and downlink of IP traffic to geostationary satellites as well as satellite equipment and local project management.
Laurence Cook, Director of Commercial Operations at Kingston MediaStream, said: “'Connexion by Boeing' is a major step forward in Internet provision and we are delighted to be involved in this project. The system has already been proven to work at a European level both at demonstrations including Farnborough 2000 and on European Test Flights taking off from London. Transatlantic customers on Boeing aircraft will be able to check their email, surf the web and watch real time TV, including live news, from 39,000 feet.”
'Connexion by Boeing' is part of the aerospace manufacturer's major development of in-flight broadband services that will revolutionise air transportation in the 21st century. It will deliver live, real time TV and interactive Internet access to their aircrafts. (CD)
