The Advanced Connectivity system can be simply accessed via a dedicated app on the customer’s smartphone.
The connectivity system is placed inside the boot lid. The router, which is connected to the on-board DC power supply, connects to a broadband connected hub located at a static site. This hub links the Bentley system to the broadband connection at the host site.
‘Bentley Skype’ for Business and significant virtual office applications will be available in order to make it easy for the passengers to access and edit files on the go, hold vital video conferences, conduct multiple meetings and be present for crucial discussions.
“We wanted our customers to have the best in-car virtual office experience, so that they don’t run out of connectivity even when on the go. The 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. It’s something that gives the customers an experience closer to a 5G network.”Hamid Qureshi, Connected Car Product Manager, Bentley, said in a statement to Carandbike.
“The three sim card slots provide unparalleled and seamless connection. And it’s not just for work. If you want to catch up on something on the in-car theatre or Youtube or you want to stream your favourite series. It’s all about enhancing your experience and that’s what we at Bentley are always striving to do.”, Qureshi mentioned in his comment to Carandbike.
It is now available for the Mulsanne and will be available for the Bentley models in 2019.
