The evolution of handheld devices, advanced e-Enabled Inflight Entertainment Systems (e-Enabled IFE®) and the wireless enablement of the aircraft cabin has delivered unexpected advantage and untold challenges. Understanding and characterizing that environment is the critical first step in delivery a quality system, service and providing the highest level of customer satisfaction. The first step is ensuring cyber security, followed by the wireless performance. To operate securely, effectivity and reliability, both a security scan and wireless cabin survey for safe, secure and effective operations.

IFE and Wi-Fi Strategy and Performance

Today's airline cabin is the most dense wireless environment and has the most diverse collection of wireless system every imagined. Furthermore, they are inclosed in a radio frequency reflective, partially opaque carbon fiber tube. The devices use a very wide range of frequency from Wide Area Network, Personal Area Networks, Local Area Network and cellular telephone networks. The type of devices are vast, with a wide range fo connections and content delivered, include:

  1. Smart Phones

  2. Laptop Computers

  3. Tablet Computers

  4. Streaming Audio and Video on Demand

  5. Peer-to-peer game devices

  6. Handheld IFE Devices

  7. Cabin Payment Systems

  8. Flight Attendent Tablet Connectivity

  9. Flight Deck EFB Connectivity

  10. Airline RFID Tag Monitoring and Reporting

  11. System Security and PCI Compliance

  12. Wireless Network and Equipment Monitor

  13. Personalized Passenger Information

  14. Cabin Wireless Access Points
