What’s the difference between LTE and LTE-A?
LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a standard for wireless broadband communication for mobile devices. LTE-A (Long Term Evolution-Advanced) is a major enhancement that allows for the combining of multiple LTE bands for increased speeds and better performance.
Is it fast? The Airstream Smart Control and Airstream Connected systems were designed to give you broadband streaming capability anywhere that you can get a reliable signal on the AT&T network and free from 2.4Ghz interference. The system is designed to provide enough speed to stream multiple devices while using little power with secure data. See more on Smart Control Technology here and Airstream Connected here.
What kind of wireless router is in the Airstream Smart and Airstream Connected system?
The Airstream Smart Control and Airstream Connected system uses a Peplink BR1 Mini mobile router that comes equipped with a 2.4Ghz 802.11n single channel Wi-Fi radio. This protocol has a maximum throughput of 72.2 Mbps per second at 20 Mhz.
What is the difference between Airstream Smart Control and Airstream Connected?
Airstream Smart Control is an integrated remote control, monitoring and 4G LTE connectivity system available as OEM equipment on select Airstream vehicles.
Airstream Connected is the same 4G LTE connectivity found in Airstream Smart Control, but does not include the integrated remote control and monitoring system.
Both Airstream Smart Control and Airstream Connected have companion mobile apps to simplify router management, locate your Airstream, feature integrated checklists to make Airstreaming easier, along with customer service and support resources. Read more about Smart Control Technology here, and more about Airstream Connected here.

When and where was Airstream founded?
Wally Byam founded Airstream in 1931 in Culver City, California. After experimenting with building travel trailers that made camping much more comfortable than rugged, Wally rented a building and opened a small travel trailer factory. The factory has moved since then, but that’s where Airstream was born.
When did the Airstream factory move to Ohio?
Airstreams were originally built in California, but by 1952, the company had outgrown their space. Rather than stay out west, Airstream founder Wally Byam scouted locations in the midwest where the company could grow and contribute to a community. That year, Airstream officially called Jackson Center, Ohio home.
Who is Wally Byam?
Wally Byam created the very first Airstream travel trailer in 1929 and founded the company we now know as Airstream in 1931. Read more about Wally, his life, and how he got inspired to create an American icon here.
