Internet access is often not possible without buffering and interruptions in air travel. But now it is also possible due to technology. Soon we will be able to enjoy the internet without interruption even at an altitude of 40 thousand feet above the ground. This will be possible by making changes to Wi-Fi technology. Now, airplane Wi-Fi at thousands of feet altitude will facilitate internet without interruption. In this era of competition, there is tremendous pressure on airlines to provide better exclusive services to their customers. But improving 'quality of ground internet facility' can save billions of dollars in maintenance expenses by reducing this pressure to a great extent.
Indeed, the 'Seamless Air Alliance', a non-profit group of 30 airlines companies, claims that their new technology will make the inboard Internet connectivity system modular with open interfaces and systems that can be easily swapped. The group includes Airbus and Delta Airlines. The group's satellite plans include satellite companies, technical equipment manufacturers and mobile-network provider companies to fulfill the company's ambitious plans. Together they seek to present a global standard using protocols outsourced from the cellular and Wi-Fi industries. Jack Mandala, the CEO of the group, says that currently airlines are using the equipment of their chosen network provider, but the group's plan will change the game altogether.
The airport experience will be completely different for the passengers. The mobile connection will migrate from one system to another, from the terminal bridge to the jet bridge and to your seat without having to log in or pay for commuting. Now you will not be limited to those airline movies but can also play serials, movies, online episodes and video games of your choice. Mandala says that the onboard internet service is a big loss for the airlines brand. Travelers complain that they get away from social media and Infonet. But they blame the airlines rather than the Internet service provider. Mandala claims that new internet provider companies will be attracted to these integrated standards and enter the market, which will usher in a new industry. Competition will enhance quality. However the high cost of in-flight connectivity of this service is a major challenge.
The group says that this
The new protocol would also save airlines billions of dollars. Because they will not only be able to quickly adopt new technologies but will also be able to manage their needs and user friendly Wi-Fi connectivity more efficiently. For this, the group will employ a new generation of Low Earth Earth Orbit Satellite Network Low Earth Orbit Satelite Network. These may also include Elon Musk's Starlink Company. Based on the analysis of the last ten years, the group estimates that a 5% improvement in these areas is also expected to increase from 10 thousand to 25,500 passengers in the fleet of Internet connected aircraft by 2028. Not only this, the in-flight services market of airlines companies is expected to increase by $ 11.4 billion (Rs 1140 crore). This study conducted in 2019 also revealed that this benefit is expected to be around Rs 3700 crore on doubling customer convenience with 5% improvement in three other areas. In the companies which provide internet facility, the number of customers decreases by 10 percent due to poor service. Most passengers are connected to the server of the aircraft via wireless streaming entertainment.
