Bentley Bringing Super-Fast In-Car WiFi System To All Its Models In 2019

Bentley customers will soon be able to enjoy uninterrupted mobile network coverage while traveling.

That’s thanks to the new Advanced Connectivity feature, described as “the world’s first super-fast, reliable and secure in-car WiFi system.” The system can turn any Bentley into a fully connected executive office on the move, the luxury car manufacturer claims.

Bentley says the system allows passengers to access several entertainment and business applications simultaneously with uninterrupted service quality — even while traveling at speeds of 110 km/h (70 mph). That includes high-definition video streaming across multiple devices.

All customers have to do is access the Bentley Advanced Connectivity system via a dedicated app on their smartphone. Users will be able to use apps such as Bentley Skype for Business as well as virtual office applications; for example, they will have the ability to access and edit files on the go, hold video conferences, and conduct multiple meetings, all in a secure virtual environment.

Bentley collaborated with Viasat for its in-car connectivity requirements. The global communications company supplied a multi-channel virtual private network (VPN) able to aggregate up to three mobile network operators on one super-fast signal.

The connectivity system is placed inside the boot lid, with the router connected to the onboard DC power supply. The WiFi router links to a broadband-connected hub located at a static site. The hub then links the Bentley system to the broadband connection at the host site.

The super-fast WiFi service, which will be able to work with faster services such as 5G and 6G (when it arrives) will be available in all Bentley models from 2019.

      People don’t drive Bentleys. They ride in them.

        Not true. Most of us drive our Bentleys. They’re not limousines. No one drives my car but me. No one.

      ‘Stupid’ in your opinion only… this is Bentley after all.

    Watch out for any Bentleys that the owner is driving! Talk about distracted driving! Not that many are owner-driven, I’m sure, but…

      Most of us Bentley owners drive our own cars. Most Bentleys are driver’s cars, not limos.
