It’s a world where a constant and seamless connectivity experience is the norm.
Aviation industry is no exception as nearly 9 in 10 travelers demand WiFi onboard. Passengers not only want to be connected, their expectation is to be connected with the same experience as on the ground– multiple screens, multiple apps and multiple activities.
Industry research suggests that although IFC is becoming an enabler for what is often identified as the smart plane, in reality, there is a more holistic approach to connectivity across fleets for different types of service for various classes of end-users. More airlines are deploying IFC with an eye on measuring deeper down the transmission chain to ascertain the value of service to passengers with a set of very refined and key performance indicators. Can you stay behind?
The increased importance of Inflight WiFi creates a series of challenges for all airlines, Inflight WiFi hardware vendors and service providers:
How Do You Test & Validate These Inflight WiFi Scenarios?
WiCheck D2A is THE SOLUTION to take the guesswork out of your Wireless IFEC system. You can now objectively measure every aspect of your Wireless IFEC solution and validate every optimization and upgrade you implement. D2A will help keep you on top of evolving expectations around Inflight WiFi.
Alethea’s SWAT WiCheck D2A can help you take more of the control over the customer-facing environment and dictate terms for smarter suites of services in what is still an underperforming market. Yes, you heard that right!
What does D2A do?
Before you deploy your IFE/IFC system on board, you need to understand the limits of the design you are betting on. This needs extensive testing in the lab – to understand the peak performance and worst case scenarios. SWAT WiCheck D2A can model and recreate all inflight connectivity and user behavior scenarios. It is easy to use and manage, models traffic from 10s to 1000s of PEDs, runs multiple applications used by travelers, supports all security standards including landing pages and generates detailed reports with metrics to analyze.
D2A comes with an IFC test pack to test Inflight WiFi End-To-End for its
Our Test Pack for the aero industry will help you to test, measure and validate your Inflight WiFi PaxEx. With the IFC test pack, you can
- Ensure network availability
- Validate the stability and responsiveness of your system when multiple PEDs, AEDs and Seatback systems hit your portal
- Understand whether each access network is scalable to 100s of devices
- Model and measure User experience for most common applications including browsing, social media and email
- Test Video streaming from your own media server
So how do You test & validate these Inflight WiFi scenarios?
