Satellite Calls May Now Be Placed On Inmarsat Or Iridium
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,"

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
Chelton's high-speed data Inmarsat Swift 64 satcom systems are
comprised of a high gain antenna, SDU-7300 satellite data unit,

amplifier. The Chelton HSD-7000 system used for the integration
testing provides two 64K channels that can be expanded to four
"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

connected and productive regardless of where they fly in the
world," said Jeffery Salata, Chelton's General Manager.
