inmarsat services

As an Inmarsat distribution partner, ARINCDirect offers a variety of connectivity options for data, email, text messaging, voice and VPN – at some of the best rates in the industry.


Jet ConneX (JX)

Jet ConneX service has been available globally since 2016. It supports both voice & high speed internet via Inmarsat’s next generation of satellites, the Inmarsat-5s (I-5) over the Ka-band. The Ka-band has more capacity than other networks and is more efficient in its use of bandwidth, meaning more affordable in-flight connectivity and simple pricing options.

Service provides data speeds similar to what is experienced in homes and offices today. It expands the possibilities for in-flight entertainment to real-time TV and TV on demand as well as standard e-mail and web browsing capabilities. Jet ConneX offers the most extensive coverage of airways so as customers fly across time zones, they’ll have a continuous, consistent service as traffic is handed seamlessly across each Inmarsat satellite, and from one to another.

Features supported by Jet ConneX include:

  • Transmitted over the I-5 satellites
  • 4 satellites providing global, mobile Ka-band broadband services
  • Service speeds up to 15 Mbps
  • Simultaneous high-speed data and voice
  • Continuous, consistent service across all time zones
