For many years, airplanes have been the last frontier of the satellite industry. While demand for In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) has never been higher, finding as ustainable business model has been challenging. The numerous technical, regulatory and financial hurdles are daunting, particularly as the gap between user expectations and today's reality continues to widen. Fortunately, there are some disruptive new technologies on the horizon that promise to change the game.

Kevin talks also about our partnership with Panasonic Avionics Corporation and how the industry benefits.
