Dassault Falcon Delivers First Business Jet with True VoIP* Telephony
(Teterboro, New Jersey,  April 7, 2010) – On March 24, Dassault Falcon delivered the first Falcon business jet (Falcon 7X, s/n 85) with Honeywell’s new MCS 7120 Swift Broadband Communications Gateway. The product provides a fully integrated wired and wireless cabin communication system and high speed global connectivity via the Inmarsat I4 Satellite Network. The aircraft is the first business jet in the industry capable of providing fully-managed end-to-end VoIP telephony services over the Swift Broadband network. Managed VoIP services deliver significantly higher quality audio performance because of dedicated bandwidth to each call, assuring excellent audio fidelity.
"Falcon customers demand the most cutting-edge technology in their aircraft cabins,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. "What this system delivers is greater connectivity and productivity which will ensure passengers can stay in touch and continue to work as they fly on domestic and international flights.”
The system provides integrated voice and high-speed data communications for cabin and cockpit applications over a wide range of services including seamless use in the air or on the ground of a PDA, Blackberry®, iPhone®, fax or computer.  The service is capable of providing more than five times the bandwidth than other services currently available.
The first Falcon 7X aircraft with the Swift Broadband Communications Gateway system was delivered in Europe and the system is available on all current production Falcon aircraft as an option.
