In Flight Entertainment and Productivity
According to Gogo Wireless - a wireless provider for airlines - Wi-Fi Internet access has expanded to 153 million passengers in 2011 from 153,000 in 2009. More travelers are bringing their own devices, including tablets and e-readers, with them on planes. In fact, one in 12 airline passengers is now using a tablet, and that number continues to grow. Tablets account for almost 30 percent of all technology use on commercial flights, and that share is also likely to grow.
Travelers are using the connection to do more than send e-mail. What travelers want, especially business travelers, are ways to stay productive and entertained while en route to their destination. They may use their own laptops or tablets as well as the in-flight entertainment system.
Enhanced and increased bandwidth. Typically, the bandwidth of the Wi-Fi on a single-aisle plane like a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A320 can handle a maximum of 25 users at a time. Additionally, If one traveler begins to download a large file the system can slow down to a crawl. In this day of data streaming, commercial airlines are scrambling to upgrade and provide their end-users with fast reliable WiFi and infotainment. RF technology plays a integral roll.
