Airborne Internet Seminar Report and PPT

Airborne Internet

The word on just about every Internet user's lips these days is "broadband." We have so much more data to send and download today, including audio files, video files, and photos, that it's clogging our wimpy modems. Many Internet users are switching to cable modems and digital subscriber lines (DSLs) to increase their bandwidth. There's also a new type of service being developed that will take broadband into the air. In this paper, we'll learn about the future of the Airborne Internet.

We'll take a look at the networks in development, the aircraft, and how consumers may use this technology. Land-based lines are limited physically in how much data they can deliver because of the diameter of the cable or phone line. In an airborne Internet, there is no such physical limitation, enabling a broader capacity. The airborne Internet will function much like satellite-based Internet access, but without time delay. The airborne Internet will actually be used to complement the satellite and ground-based networks, not replace them. These airborne networks will overcome the last-mile barriers facing conventional Internet access options.
Airborne Internet is a private, secure and reliable peer-to-peer aircraft communications network that uses the same technology as the commercial Internet. It is an implementation that connects aircraft to a ground-based Internet access node, including the information which is passed across this communication link. It provides airborne access to the wealth of Internet information and resources. It is convenient and has several uses like flight planning, en route reservations, travel arrangements. It is useful in providing information about weather, surrounding airspace environment, and for aircraft-to-aircraft communications. The security applications include flight tracking/deviation monitoring, in-flight video monitoring, cockpit voice/video recording.
