Gogo revealed three strategic partners – Cisco, Airspace, and First RF – which will play key roles in Gogo's development of its 5G system and network.
Cisco will provide core network solutions that will power Gogo's nationwide Air-to-Ground (ATG) 5G network. Additionally, the Gogo 5G system will use the same technology as the Airspan Air5G product line – as the Air5G platform will provide 5G, virtualized-RAN base station technology. Finally, First RF will bring its antenna and RF systems technology portfolio to deploy a solution that pairs Gogo's existing 3G and 4G networks as well as the new 5G network.
Additionally, Gogo revealed that its Avance systems – Avance L5 and Avance L3 – have now flown more than 175,000 flights totaling more than 108 million miles. The 175,000 flights is a milestone that took two years to reach following the initial launch of Avance L5 in late-2017.
