Broad Band Multi-Link (BBML) 3.0 is the latest version of Gulfstream's ultra-high-speed data system, which delivers Internet access via a KU Band satellite data channel between the aircraft and ground. BBML also supports connections over optional L Band data connections such as Inmarsat SwiftBroadband terminals. Whether on the ground or in the air, passengers can use BBML to surf the Internet, send and receive email or perform any other web-based task at data speeds of up to 2.0* megabits per second. BBML helps transform your aircraft into an "office in the sky."
Benefits include industry-leading data speeds; the ability to download large files including videos; availability in North America, the North Atlantic, Western Europe, the North Pacific and areas of Africa and South America; smartphone compatibility; optional voice-over Internet protocol capability; and wireless connections in the cabin.
The enhanced BBML system comprises a new higher gain third-generation dish antenna under the aircraft's tail radome, an antenna control unit, an aircraft integrated transceiver router, and Gulfstream's third-generation (Gen 3.0) enhanced aircraft cabin server.
The all-new server provides enhanced vibration tolerance, improved tolerance to electrical spikes and transients, an updated, more stable operating system, and an integrated wireless LAN (WLAN).
Like all airborne broadband connectivity options, BBML's KU Band link is subject to a variety of factors that affect the reliability of the system and the satellite service. these range from adverse atmospheric conditions, solar events, service provider maintenance outages, Internet congestion, and airborne and ground station equipment reliability.
