Chelton
: 27 July, 2008  (Company News)
International Communications Group (ICG) announced this week its AeroCom 3000, AeroCom 1100 and NxtLink 400 Iridium transceivers have been successfully tested and integrated with Chelton's high speed data systems for both voice and data communications.
The successful integration was completed utilizing ICG's Sigma 7BL, Sigma7, Jetphone and Cordless handsets.

'This integration provides greater flexibility and redundancy for airborne executives flying on aircraft equipped with Chelton equipment since the ICG PBX devices can be used to place and receive calls on either the Inmarsat or Iridium satellite systems,' said Jeff Saucedo, ICG's Vice President of Product Sales.

ICG's NxtLink 400 incorporates four Iridium transceivers with an internal CTU that permits up to ten telephone connections for voice or data. The AeroCom 3000 and AeroCom 1100 cabin telecommunications units (CTU) provides communications automation, medium integration and transceiver management facilities for aeronautical applications. Operational with a variety of standard telephony devices, the CTUs replicate the conveniences and services offered by a contemporary 'executive-office' communications systems in an aircraft cabin.

Chelton's high-speed data Inmarsat Swift 64 satcom systems are comprised of a high gain antenna, SDU-7300 satellite data unit, HPA-7400 high power amplifier and a DLNA diplexer/low noise amplifier. The Chelton HSD-7000 system used for the integration testing provides two 64K channels that can be expanded to four total channels.

'By offering the ICG handsets and PBX systems to our customers can we're providing them with the ability to tailor their on-board communications systems to meet their specific needs. The fact that they can utilize both the Inmarsat and Iridium satellite systems also provides them with the confidence that they can remain connected and productive regardless of where they fly in the world,' said Jeffery Salata, Chelton's General Manager.
