Airborne internet developments

AIRLINE BUSINESS magazine and SITA have published a study that indicates that some 68% of airlines plan to invest in IP broadband connectivity both to and from aircraft over the next three years.  In fact, new wi-fi services are now being tested and rolled out by many leading airlines including Air Canada, AirTran, Alaska, American, Delta/Northwest, Southwest, Virgin and others.  The World Airline Entertainment Association (WAEA) gathering in Las Vegas, as briefly covered in last week’s AERBT, highlighted this, typically AP Avionx's new Cab-n-ConnectTM, on display, taking advantage of the recently adopted IEEE 802.11n specification, which increases maximum throughput to wireless clients from 54mbps to over 300mbps.  It is small and powerful, ideal for commercial aircraft. www.apavionx.com
