Today, the first day of the Paris Air Show 2019, the Seamless Air Alliance with the support of its members GlobalReach Technology, Sprint and Boingo, is showing secure and seamless connection to high-performance inflight Wi-Fi using Hotspot 2.0 Wi-Fi services and discuss the opportunities that 5G presents to the airline industry and inflight connectivity.
Hotspot 2.0 is an important tool that has been a part of the Seamless Air Alliance's extensive work across Wi-Fi, cellular and 5G technologies as its membership continues to promote open standards for inflight connectivity equipment.
"This demonstration is a big step for the Alliance in showcasing the progress that we have made in recent months. We want to empower airlines with more control over the connectivity experience delivered to their passengers. Open specifications will drive down the cost and complexity for airlines and result in a better experience for billions of passengers across the globe," said Jack Mandala, CEO of Seamless Air Alliance.
"Seamless Air Alliance will deliver industry advances that makes our customers' lives better. Seamless connectivity from ground to in-air provides an entirely new level of convenience, productivity and entertainment for travelers," said Doug Smith, Vice President of Product Marketing and Innovation, Sprint.
