Travelers are consuming more and more data, so networks will need more throughput – while ideally consuming less power. Telecommunications equipment supplier Pivotal Commware isn’t interested in delivering anything less than gigabit Internet to moving passenger jets.
Pivotal’s Holographic Beam Forming (HBF) technology sends targeted radio waves directly to individual devices to enhance Internet connectivity. These radio waves are shaped in a manner similar to how a hologram is formed by manipulating light. For example, if traditional wireless broadcasting is equated to the house lights in a theatre, HBF is like a spotlight, delivering higher-capacity, more efficient data transaction to specific targets.
