Broadband internet provider for airlines moves infrastructure to Amazon Web Services
In-flight broadband internet provider Gogo is moving its entire infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The company uses AWS Elemental Live video processing and delivery to provide the consistency and low latency required for live and on-demand video at 30,000 feet.
Gogo’s transition to AWS comes at a time when the demand for content is intensifying, with global airline passengers increasingly citing in-flight Wi-Fi availability as a necessity.
Gogo enables commercial airlines to stream video to passengers’ smart tablets, to stream pre-theatrical and first-run movie titles to devices, and to install FTE wireless systems on aircraft.
GogoTV, Gogo’s live TV service, is also using AWS Elemental solutions to power transcoding for 24 live TV channels across five airlines.
