VW Group-owned luxury brand Bentley is trumpeting the launch of 'Advanced Connectivity' – claimed by Bentley to be the "world's first super-fast, reliable and secure in-car WiFi system".

Bentley says its customers can now benefit from uninterrupted mobile network coverage while travelling, providing a 'fully functioning and fully connected executive office on the move'.

It says that when using the Bentley Advanced Connectivity WiFi system while travelling at speeds of 110 km/h (70 mph), a passenger is able to access a number of simultaneous entertainment and business applications – including high-definition video streaming across multiple devices – with uninterrupted service quality.

Bentley customers access the Bentley Advanced Connectivity system via a dedicated app on their smart phone.

Bentley Advanced Connectivity is a multi-channel virtual private network (VPN), which can aggregate up to three mobile network operators on one super-fast signal. The connectivity system is placed inside the Bentley's boot lid, with the router connected to the on-board DC power supply.

The WiFi router links to a broadband connected hub located at a static site. This hub then links the Bentley system to the broadband connection at the host site.

The new service is available in all Bentley models in 2019.

Bentley says it conducted an exhaustive international search to find a partner for its in-car connectivity requirements, and has enlisted global communications company, Viasat, to provide the service.
