Cirilium’s VoWiFi solution will interface with Honeywell’s air-to-ground satellite communications avionics to deliver VoIP to onboard VoWiFi handsets.
Cirilium, Inc (OTCBB:CRLU) today announced its cooperation with Honeywell (NYSE:HON) to provide Honeywell with a WiFi technology-enabled VoIP phone system for their Business Jet customers.
The new system will interface with the Honeywell onboard ARINC 746-compliant SATCOM avionics components that provide air-to-ground satellite communications, allowing passengers to interface with the system via a Cirilium WiFi VoIP handset.
Cirilium will also be providing the core VoIP and IP data communication gateway software that will integrate with the avionics platform designed, tested and certified per FAA specification by Honeywell.
The resulting product product will in effect be a Cirilium WiFi-enabled IP-PBX on Honeywell’s platform. The companies believe that a WiFi-enabled VoIP cabin telephony system for the corporate business jet market will be a significant improvement over any of the proprietary hard wired telephony systems currently in the market.
