Honeywell’s GoDIRECT debut

The GoDIRECT Router is only now moving into the air transport sector, having been launched at NBAA 2018. “We’ve tested it in the business aviation market to get it to a position where it is stable and scalable,” Peterson says.

Honeywell shows off its GoDIRECT suite, featuring a new router. John Peterson, the company’s vice-president and general manager, software and services, says the GoDIRECT Router is “70% smaller, 60% less expensive and uses only 50% of the power compared with other routers on the market”. 
In addition to acting as a router for all bands, the unit also acts as a server for IFE and other content, and as a wireless access point for the cabin. On the ground, it can also transmit and receive cellular data. “Airlines can, therefore, use the most cost-effective data pipe available,” Peterson says.
He adds that the router allows synchronization with operations, such as weather teams, dispatch, pilots, and crews. The data received can then be put through Honeywell’s analytics processes to help airlines make better use of those assets.
