Executive Summary

A primary difficulty when investigating communication requirements rises when a very specific field as an aircraft cabin is considered. The diverse needs of passengers are often incompatible to the strict constraints inside the cabin. Nowadays, In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) systems, for instance, are widely spread in modern flights. An IFE system usually consists of a Seat Electronic Box, the passengers terminal hardware, plus a Passengers Control Unit, the remote control to select the service, and a Visual Display Unit, the screen. Using the wireless technology in these systems can increase the satisfaction level of both the passengers and the avionics companies.
