We are excited to have finalized our agreement with Airspan to develop and build the Gogo 5G network, which will be an important milestone in the inflight connectivity industry, said Mike Syverson, senior vice president of engineering and operations for Gogo Business Aviation. Gogo 5G is the next step in our technology evolution and is expected to deliver an unparalleled user experience, pairing high performance with low latency and network-wide redundancy. Airspan's proven ability to deliver high capacity low latency solutions in challenging environments is critical to our success.
Airspan has over 25 years of experience of pushing the limits of wireless technology, whether it be breaking the barriers to scalable roll outs or delivering ultra-fast broadband at 30,000 feet. Our partnership with Gogo is an important milestone for the commercialization of true 5G applications and use cases. We are very excited to be a part of this project, said Eric Stonestrom, CEO of Airspan Networks.
The Gogo 5G system will use the same carrier-grade technology as the Airspan Air5G product line. The Air5G platform will provide 5G standalone mode operation using state of the art; virtualised RAN base station technology and Massive MIMO antenna arrays. Utilising advanced beamforming and tracking techniques, the system is capable of communicating to an Aircraft travelling in excess of 1200km/h, at long range, all while providing an enhanced mobile broadband 5G experience.
