Bentley will connect to a high-speed network.November 6, 2018
Starting next year, all Bentley models will be equipped with a high-speed WiFi access point. Advanced Connectivity will be the world’s first most secure and reliable internet access channel from a car, capable of working simultaneously with multiple devices.
Access to the service will be carried out through a special application for smartphones. Customers will be available as a set of office and multimedia applications. For example, streaming video in high resolution or video conferencing. In fact, Advanced Connectivity is a multi-channel VPN service that can combine up to three mobile operators into one ultra-fast communication channel.
The main module of the system, as well as the router powered from the onboard power grid, are located in the trunk. The latter is connected to a broadband access hub and provides a stable internet connection at speeds up to 110 kilometers per hour.
In early October, graduates of the Smart Mobility Faculty (MA Intelligent Mobility) of the Royal College of Art in the UK presented their vision of the future of Bentley. Of the 24 works submitted, college teachers and brand designers chose four that most accurately met the task.
