Bentley has claimed the launch of the world’s first super-fast, reliable and secure in-car Wi-Fi system with the launch of its Advanced Connectivity.
The British car manufacturer’s customers can now benefit from uninterrupted mobile network coverage while travelling, providing a fully functioning and fully connected executive office on the move.
When using the Bentley Advanced Connectivity Wi-Fi system while travelling at speeds of 110 km/h (70 mph), a passenger is able to access a number of simultaneous entertainment and business applications – including high-definition video streaming across multiple devices – with uninterrupted service quality.
The customers simply need to access the Bentley Advanced Connectivity system via a dedicated app on their smart phone. This new Wi-Fi service is available in all Bentley models in 2019.
Users will benefit from Bentley Skype for Business and significant virtual office applications, such as the ability to access and edit files on the go, hold vital video conferences, conduct multiple meetings and be present for crucial discussions, all in a secure virtual environment.
Bentley Advanced Connectivity is a multi-channel virtual private network (VPN), which can combine up to three mobile network operators on one super-fast signal. The connectivity system is placed discreetly inside the Bentley’s boot lid, with the router connected to the on-board DC power supply.
Elsewhere, car hire firm Avis has tapped into Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help with connected car data analysis. The firm will use AWS Connected Vehicle Solution, which focuses on transporting vehicle data to Amazon’s cloud securely, with low latency and low overhead. Options for customers include local computing within vehicles, as well as data processing and storage.
