Wi-Fi

In an increasingly connected world, people expect to access their data, email and online content no matter wherever they are; to the degree that for many passengers, on-board Wi-Fi is seen as a necessity.

Working in the same way as fixed-location hotspots, 21st Century Technology uses a variety of industry leading router manufacturers in order to bring robust and reliable Wi-Fi connections to your customers.

Key relationships

21st Century Technology has worked with a multitude of manufacturers to bring customers the best possible level of internet access, including Icomera and Faltcom. The solutions installed by 21st Century Technology vary dependent on each customers’ needs, and how they envision their service being used.

Technology

As a tried and tested technology, most on-board routers work in much the same way, using single 3G/4G channels to multi-network bonded systems to provide maximum bandwidth and coverage to your passengers. Depending on the size and configuration of your vehicle, one or more access points may be used to allow users on to your mobile network.

By utilising the data networks of multiple providers, the technology affords some redundancy against the vagaries of network coverage, ensuring that your passengers always have the best internet access available.

Passenger access can be controlled by the operator, and all our solutions will track usage by device and offer effective filtering against inappropriate viewing while on-board.

Integration

Passenger Wi-Fi can be installed as a standalone solution or alternatively, it can be integrated with other on-board systems. The infrastructure provided by 21st Century Technology when installing passenger Wi-Fi can be used as the backbone of an integrated solution to take data from your other systems off-vehicle and securely transmit to your back-office, separated from your passengers’ internet traffic.
