Many airlines envision the deployment of wireless LAN infrastructure for video streaming to inflight entertainment devices attached to cabin seats. The sheer advantage of wireless LAN infrastructure is that it facilitates flexible configuration of cabin seat layout with less effort and low cost. The emerging IEEE 802.11n technology which has high throughput is an interesting option for such wireless LAN infrastructure. This paper evaluates the performance of video streaming over IEEE 802.11n, considering the QoS requirements of inflight video, by ns-2 simulation.
