ARINC today announced the launch of ARINC AviNet Mail Enterprise Hub (eHub) for the Air Transport Community. eHub is a multi-user web-based service that gives aviation organizations a robust messaging environment for all of their communications needs.
By utilising cloud computing, eHub addresses the needs of mobile computing and provides a host of new capabilities that improve communications, decrease costs and enables aviation organizations to easily replace legacy messaging gateways, allowing customers to utilise the latest technologies to enhance operations.
Leveraging cloud computing technology also eliminates the need for expensive internal server installations or software license fees. This makes eHub simple and cost effective in terms of capacity and user management, and builds on the System as a Service (SaaS) model.
eHub has been designed to be easily configured for either a single user or a global user with multiple divisions and departments with varying messaging requirements. It offers simple user message management and includes free internal and local message routing, which reduces costs to the customer.
eHub gives users a single interface that supports the full complement of the aviation industry’s messaging formats and protocols including XML, Type X, Type B, SMTP, X400, Fax and SMS. eHub supports multiple languages. Unlike other comparable systems, eHub performs Type B to SMS message delivery and offers a `right click drag and drop` function.
"As a hosted solution that is fully managed by ARINC, the entire aviation community now has the benefit of using the industry’s leading messaging service in a secure, reliable and cost-effective manner," said Alexis Hickox, Senior Director, Aviation Solutions of ARINC EMEA. "With its advanced functionality, eHub truly represents the next generation messaging hub for the air transport industry."
