Syniverse and AiRXOS, a wholly owned subsidiary of GE Aviation, are working together to provide a communications infrastructure that manages drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles operating at low altitudes.
The collaboration offers network security for drone UTM systems so that critical data, notifications, photos and HD video are transmitted over a secure network with protection from cyberattacks.
Mike O’Brien, group vice president at Syniverse, said: “By utilizing our secure, private network, Syniverse Secure Global Access, we can ensure the information is only accessible to the correct parties.”
Adding: “The Syniverse network runs completely separate from the public internet thus making the Unmanned Traffic Management system and the information it sends invisible to hackers as the data and messages are diverted away from networks with unprotected connectivity.”
This security is coupled with Syniverse’s connectivity solution, Global IMSI, which allow devices to roam seamlessly across borders and networks.
Ken Stewart, CEO at AiRXOS, commented: “AiRXOS is pleased to be partnering with Syniverse toward the safe integration of unmanned in the national air space. Syniverse’s connectivity and engagement solution expertise combined with AiRXOS’ proven Air Mobility Platform will deliver customers a trusted, best-in-class solution that truly accelerates advanced UAS operations.”
