Wireless Internet access in a vehicle
Mercedes-Benz offers for the first time wireless and unrestricted Internet access in a vehicle.With the Mercedes-Benz InCar Hotspot, the data signals are received via the vehicle antenna. A special WLAN router and a data-enabled SIM card process the signals and provide wireless Internet access also during the drive.
Up to three WLAN-enabled end devices (e.g. laptop, mobile) can be connected to the Internet simultaneously. The users thus have access to the “World Wide Web” with no site restrictions. The Mercedes-Benz InCar Hotspot system supports the particularly fast HSDPA transmission standard, as well as UMTS and GSM/EDGE.
From October 2009, the Mercedes-Benz InCar Hotspot will be available in the new E-Class and S-Class*. A vehicle featuring this equipment is on display at the Mercedes stand at the IAA.
