FlightStream SA. Satcom system compression and control

Aircraft Satcom Filtering, Firewall and Network Security - AirSatOne

Global firewall and compression management for SBB.

Flightstream™ SA is an optional service, offered at no charge to our customers. Flightstream™ SA offers a full set of web filtering, compression, management, and consumption tracking features. Changes can be made at any time, from the ground, eliminating the need to have technicians make changes on the aircraft.

To reduce data usage and free up bandwidth, aircraft operators can choose different levels of compression, block high content web sites, limit downloaded file sizes and block automatic updates. This service also provides email notifications at customer selected consumption levels to let the flight crew (or ground support) know if excessive data is being used. Automatic suspension of service is also available in the event of runaway data usage. To learn more we invite you to view our video covering FlightStream SA and Satcom Monitoring.

While our competitors offer a similar service with fewer features that operate at a single location, our Flightstream™ SA is deployed globally - an important feature for aircraft operating around the world. Being deployed globally is important for efficient data handling to reduce time, distance travelled and to reduce latency and hops. Milliseconds add up for each data packet sent and received, a shorter distance means less hops and faster data. Your data having to take an additional round trip to and from a single point location results in more hops, greater latency and more time for page loads. Our backbone and its efficiency matter to the passengers on your aircraft.

Flightstream™ SA allows aircraft operators to control their Satcom systems. Changes can be made to a single aircraft, an entire fleet, or a group of aircraft in the fleet. Flightstream™ SA does not require hardware or software to be installed on the aircraft or personal devices and allows flight departments to keep their highly mobile networks under control.

Flightstream™ SA is accessible through AirSatOne's customer portal providing aircraft operators with online management capabilities for SwiftBroadband. Features can be changed at any time by AirSatOne personnel or the customer. Administrators can simply and quickly configure data traffic profiles whenever they want and wherever the aircraft is located - even when the Satcom system is offline.
