On July 15, Qualcomm conducted a wireless VoIP test on an American Airlines commercial airplane, enabling passengers with commercially available CDMA mobile phones to place and receive calls and text messages in-flight. The technology employed Qualcomm’s 3G picocell network and UTStarcom’s Moving Media 2000 softswitch to support a VoIP connection between an in-cabin CDMA cellular base station and an air-to -ground Globalstar satellite link.

Boeing conducted a similar VoAirplane test last month, supporting in-flight PC to phone connectivity on a Lufthansa aircraft using Xten’s softphone.
