Next Generation High-speed Wireless on Board

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.

Wireless Access Point

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, multimedia streaming, 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. The device’s airtight housing hosts optimized internal antennas (3 x 3 MIMO antenna array) to ease installation and relieving operators of the need for single antenna adjustments.

The new WAP’s technology makes it especially suited for both the newest and future aircraft generations such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350.
