Lufthansa Technik is offering a new aviation-qualified high-performance Wireless Access Point (WAP) based on the latest developments from Aruba Networks. Optimized for the extremely high-density characteristics common in aircraft cabin environments and complying with the most stringent aviation security constraints, the new WAP offers ultra-fast data communications. The device can be easily configured by airlines for the requirements of their IFE and connectivity systems. The solution offers airlines the ability to deliver high speed Wi-Fi for in-flight web browsing, real-time communications, point-of-sale applications, passenger gaming and other Internet-based services. As the first aircraft access point available on the aviation market based on the Gigabit Wireless Standard (802.11ac, 1.3 Gbps) it allows faster video streaming and on-board Internet connections supporting more mobile devices on two independent radios.
