Bentley Announces World’s Fastest Wi-Fi

Bentley announced the launch of Advanced Connectivity – the world’s first super-fast, reliable and secure in-car WiFi system.

Customers can now benefit from uninterrupted mobile network coverage while traveling, providing a fully functioning and fully connected executive office on the move.

For example, when using the 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.

The Advanced Connectivity system can be simply accessed via a dedicated app on the customer’s smartphone.

Users will also benefit from Bentley Skype for Business and significant virtual office applications, such as the ability to access and edit files on the go, hold vital video conferences, conduct multiple meetings and be present for crucial discussions, all in a secure virtual environment.

The super-fast and highly reliable connection also offers customers new, unrivalled levels of in-car entertainment. Bentley Advanced Connectivity allows online video services to stream content uninterrupted in the car, for a truly luxury viewing experience.

How Bentley Advanced Connectivity Work

Bentley conducted an exhaustive international search to find the perfect partner for its in-car connectivity requirements, and has enlisted global communications company, Viasat, to provide the world’s best and most secure in-car technology for its customers.

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 discreetly inside the boot lid, with the router connected to the on-board DC power supply.

The Wi-Fi 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, for unparalleled connectivity, reliability and security.

Viasat is recognised internationally for having managed 14 million WiFi hotspots; for having operated a managed hotspot network in nearly 30 countries; and for bringing satellite-enabled in-flight WiFi to major commercial and government aircraft worldwide.

This new super-fast Wi-Fi service is available in all Bentley models in 2019.

VP Plaza España Design

VP Plaza España Design hotel recently opened its doors in the center of Madrid, offering luxury accommodations wrapped into an unprecedented design philosophy, whose main protagonist is art. Prominent Spanish artists have contributed their unique works and creations, making this property an icon of design, architecture and art in the capital of Madrid.

Guests will be able to immerse themselves in an atmosphere where decor, furniture, architecture, and luxurious service co-exist in perfect harmony, offering an experience that goes far beyond accommodations. It is a philosophy that breaks the boundaries of what has already been done in the past and allows visitors to enjoy the essence of design, for a one-of-a-kind experience from beginning to end.

VP Plaza España Design worked with key Spanish designers, artists, and architects for the conceptualization of its façade and public spaces, which allows its facilities to have a distinctive and distinguished touch that makes it an unparalleled luxury option in Madrid. The hotel features include work by Pere Gifre, Dario Urzay, Fernando Palacios, Nacho Zubelzu, Veronica Domingo, and Héléne Bergaz, as well as Patricia San Juan, Marre, and Jan Hendrix.

Symbiosis of Art and Ingenuity

The selection of artists who have collaborated to bring life to the greatest icon of luxury and design represents a harmonious blend of disciplines, trends, visions, expressions, and styles. All of them carry a solid national and international trajectory, deserving of outstanding recognition for their iconic works inside and outside of Spain. Each, with their own inspiration, have made a contribution of exclusive creations, devised within the design philosophy that Hotel VP Plaza España Design 5* has established.

Renowned artist Pere Gifre is the architect of the impressive eight-story waterfall that dominates the atrium of the hotel and creates an impressive visual illusion of water that falls in a magnificently artistic way, trapping guests in a sensory experience that mixes the wild side of nature with the luxury and tranquility of water.

A tribute to art can be experienced in the lobby, where paintings created by the Bilbao Dario Urzay can be appreciated. The paintings highlight the artist’s personal poetics combined with his ability to induce new forms of knowledge and communication.

The corridors are also sure to catch guests’ attention as the painter and sculptor, Fernando Palacios, showcases material language with nearly three-dimensional forms that exude a special meaning of life in a luxurious context. His works of art may also be admired in some of the hotel rooms.

The mural “Buscando a un hombre,” created from Nacho Zubelzu’s inspiration, can be seen in front of the hotel elevators. Zubelzu’s impressive collages decorating the bar and lobby area bathrooms were made with the intention of creating an “art bar.”

An innovative and unique redesign of the aesthetics of the landscape is reflected in the works of Madrid-born Héléne Bergaz. The artist’s creations give a master touch to the hotel rooms, with a vanguardist approach of photographic montages with meteorites bearing his unmistakable stamp.

Verónica Domingo’s impressive paintings, created with Indian ink, decorate the hotel’s impressive suites. She shows her passion for Asian art and calligraphy, creating infinite value in the construction of a complex and abstract framework.
