Denmark - Cobham SATCOM has announced a new multiple voice line
capability across its entire AVIATOR SwiftBroadband range after
Inmarsat made its new Multi-Voice service live. All existing
AVIATOR terminals will now support Multi-Voice with a simple
upgrade, plus the service will be available on Cobham's next
generation product family, AVIATOR S.
The Inmarsat Multi-Voice service for SwiftBroadband will support
up to nine simultaneous voice lines on a single AVIATOR
SwiftBroadband terminal, enabling more users to benefit from high
quality and cost effective calling during the flight.
The new Multi-Voice service is compatible with Cobham's AVIATOR
Wireless Handset, which features best-in-class noise and echo
cancellation capabilities to ensure excellent voice calling
clarity. Passengers and crew can also use their own Wi-Fi enabled
smartphones to access SwiftBroadband voice calling on AVIATOR.

having its own number and it is also possible to dial out from any
handset in the aircraft.

upgrade to the new service, plus the Multi-Voice capability will be
available on all new system installations," said Kim Gram, Vice
