Gigsky Mobile Data Services To Be Offered By Avionica

MIAMI – August 29, 2016 – Avionica announces a partnership with GigSky, a leading provider of mobile data solutions. The agreement enables Avionica to offer GigSky mobile data services directly to flight departments for their connected aircraft at an affordable cost. The seamless, single-SIM data service will be available to airlines and commercial flight operators worldwide. 

“Avionica is excited to offer global data services from GigSky as part of our product portfolio for aircraft data management. We’ve tailored our combined services to the needs of airlines and commercial flight operators, with an emphasis on personalized customer service and support,” said Sean Reilly, vice president of Business Development for Avionica.

GigSky has built a robust, redundant 3G/LTE aviation network, delivering mission-critical mobile data in more than 190 countries and territories. The company has earned a reputation as a reliable provider, supplying mobile data to support Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), Electronic Technical Log (ETL) and Wireless Quick Access Recorder (WQAR) deployment. Their consumer solution has also been selected by Apple and is fully integrated with iOS with support for world-wide mobile data connectivity in the latest cellular-enabled iPads. 

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Avionica, a company with an advanced and innovative product line, as well as a significant footprint in the industry,” commented Vikas Chand, vice president of Global Sales at GigSky. “Avionica can now bring customers a complete solution combining their world-class hardware and services with the ultra-reliable connectivity of GigSky.”

Fleet and aircraft operators often face billing and account management challenges, especially when trying to negotiate roaming charges for international mobile data. GigSky’s aviation-friendly solution saves customers the hassle of dealing with multiple providers, so they benefit from worldwide high-speed data at affordable zone pricing, via a single SIM, and the convenience of a single bill.

As part of the Avionica plan, customers can select the GigSky Enterprise Manager (GEM). Avionica will use the GEM application to optimize and control mobile data usage and manage user accounts and SIMs, while gaining visibility into usage trends, for a more budgeted approach to each customer’s data spend.
