Voice network for aviation data networks
Airline companies are always looking for various services they can offer to differentiate them from others and increase there market share. On the other hand passengers in the aircraft always want to be in touch with the rest of the world through phone or internet to make there time more productive. The drive of gaining market share by airline companies and advances in wireless and internet technology has made voice communication possible from the aircraft. Present technologies offer cell phone access or allow voice communication over internet through satellite link. The major disadvantage they pose is the interference of cell phone transmission with navigational system of aircraft and the cost of implementation. Present research work attempts to address the above problem by designing an IP based network which is capable of connecting travelers from aircraft to the rest of the world.
