AirCell displayed at the NBAA Convention the newly certified wireless function of its Axxess satcom system for business jets. With the wireless function enabled, Axxess provides an 802.11bg wireless hotspot aboard the airplane. When a broadband connection (such as Inmarsat or AirCell broadband) is installed, passengers can use the Axxess in-cabin wireless connection to seamlessly operate laptops and other 802.11bg Wi-Fi devices to surf the Internet, use e-mail and log on to their corporate virtual private network, the company noted.
