ACG-801

 

Airborne Communication Gateway ACG-801

The Airborne Communication Gateway ACG-801 is a multi-functional voice and data communication gateway system, specifically designed and tested to conform to the requirements of on-aircraft operation.

It provides all necessary LAN and WAN interfaces to enable multiple on-board users to access the full complement of voice and data services provided by the INMARSAT Aeronautical Satcom Swift64, Swift Broadband, Iridium Aero Satcom and AirCell terrestrial broadband air-to-ground communication links.

At its core, a pair of high performance 1.6GHz Intel Atom microprocessors, with 1GB memory, provide separate but integrated platforms for high end network routing operations, full featured IP PBX functions and custom applications processing. The innovative hardware platform architecture provides the flexibility of supporting different combinations of custom applications, resulting in a wide range of operational functions and features. The selection of network interfaces, which include ARINC-429 Tx/Rx, ISDN BRI S/T, 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet, USB, RS-232 Serial and POTS FXO, FXS also reflects flexibility and scope of the networks that are supported.

The users may access the air-to-ground network using wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi wireless interfaces with their Laptop PCs, PDAs or smart phones and BlackBerry devices. They can then browse the Internet, log on to their own corporate networks, send and receive email or video conference, while making or receiving multiple voice calls at the same time.
