First Embraer Lineage 1000E now equipped with Gogo AVANCE SCS Elite
Geneva – May 30, 2018 – Embraer, an industry leader in business jet production, completed its first retrofit of a Lineage 1000E business jet with Gogo AVANCE SCS Elite – the highly integrated cabin, inflight entertainment (IFE) and voice solution from Gogo Business Aviation. Earlier this year AVANCE SCS Elite was certified as baseline equipment on the Lineage 1000E.
AVANCE SCS is a suite of smart cabin system capabilities that let users integrate – seamlessly and reliably – a personal mix of technologies to create a cabin experience that is unique and ideal for them. Whether that’s enabling moving maps so passengers can track their flight, or premiering a single interface that passengers can use to engage with a fully connected cabin – users decide what smart looks like, and SCS does the rest.
“Full integration with in-flight cabin and entertainment systems allows for a seamless customer experience,” said Luciano Froes, senior vice president-marketing, Embraer Executive Jets. “We are committed to the adoption of innovative technologies that will deliver tangible value to customers.”
AVANCE SCS Elite represents the latest and most technically capable router and media server available in business avation. As a high-speed router, SCS Elite allows passengers to maximize the available bandwidth from any of their onboard connectivity options. As a robust, always up-to-date media server, SCS Elite puts the latest in-flight entertainment news, movies and moving maps at the customer’s fingertips and on their personal devices.
“We created AVANCE SCS to be a powerful way to integrate connectivity, entertainment and information to enhance and simplify the passenger experience,” said Mark Sander, vice president of OEM sales for Gogo. “Through our close partnership with Embraer, the AVANCE technology platform has been embraced for installation on several new production models including the Lineage 1000, as well as the Legacy 450 and 500 aircraft.”
SCS Elite is a highly integrated smart cabin system that gives passengers a single interface for whatever a user wants to do: browse the Internet, make and receive phone calls, access the cabin management system, or access to moving maps, movies, TV, and news. Because it’s compact and light weight, SCS Elite fits in virtually any size business aircraft from turboprops to the heavy iron, and works across ATG and satellite systems.
No router, cabin management system (CMS), or other solution on the market delivers the breadth and depth of functionality, and ease of use that SCS Elite does. SCS Elite supports and manages multiple data bearers, voice bearers and CMS, so the data and voice experience is seamless. Wi-Fi throughout the cabin is stronger and more reliable, and the inflight entertainment and information experience is unparalleled in business aviation with Gogo Vision integrated into the platform. SCS Elite offers a single interface, so controlling the cabin environment no longer means closing one application and opening another – it’s done automatically.
SCS Elite is ideal for fractional, charter, flight departments and other multi-aircraft operators who need a consistent, seamless, reliable cabin experience. And single aircraft owner/operators can simplify and improve their cabin experience with SCS Elite whether they have connectivity with Gogo or another provider.
