Feb. 9, 2010 –
After independent tests among the leading airborne telecommunications
systems, TrueNorth’s advanced Simphone OpenCabin system has been
selected for retrofit on its first Falcon 900EASy executive aircraft.
Determining that only Simphone OpenCabin offered the clarity,
volume, longevity and performance its executives desired, the
corporate Falcon EASy operator sent their newly delivered aircraft to
the Dassault Service Center in Wilmington, DE, for a telecom upgrade
to TrueNorth.

A revolutionary software-centric concept, the new Simphone (pronounced ‘symphony’) OpenCabin system uses a suite of
enterprise-level software applications (‘apps’) to bring advanced
voice and data-management capabilities to business aviation. Since
current hardware-centric airborne telecom systems are heavy, complex,
expensive to install and prone to obsolescence, TrueNorth developed a
converged solution that interfaces with virtually any corporate
aircraft, turning the airplane into an extension of the company’s
IT and communications networks. Benefits include robust performance;
an unlimited lifespan; enterprise-level security; significant
long-term cost savings; and the ability to add a wide variety of
custom functions by simply uploading software.

“We’ve heard that operators of these
high-end aircraft are tired of noisy, poor-quality voice calls, where
passengers complain about not being able to communicate clearly. They
want to be heard ‘loud and clear’, and Simphone
OpenCabin lets them do that, along with many
other things,”

noted Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth’s president.
