Gogo Gets Closer To Tech Roadmap

Wireless in-flight entertainment provider Gogo has taken its next step towards a technology roadmap, which will be capable of delivering more than 60 Mbps to aircraft. The new service called ‘Gogo GTO’ (Ground to Orbit) – is a hybrid technology that combines the aspects of existing satellite technologies with Gogo's Air to Ground (ATG) cellular network.  The technology will use satellite for receive only (transmission to the aircraft) and Gogo's Air to Ground network for the return link (transmission to the ground). Virgin America will be the launch partner of the new service, which is expected to be available in the second half of 2014.
