Kontron expands Cab-n-Connect™ line of wireless access points with new 28VDC power input version
Now the same high-bandwidth, enterprise class performance used for video streaming in commercial wide-body aircraft is available for business and regional jets
"With the growing demand for bandwidth within the aircraft cabin and the trend to provide video streaming to passengers, existing wireless access points using 802.11a/b/g wireless standards are not able to support large numbers of high throughput users on a plane," said Andy Mason, Business Line Manager of Commercial Avionics at Kontron. "The Kontron Cab-n-Connect(TM) utilizes a unique adaptive architecture that provides intelligent and automatic features to enhance the overall performance and experience for passengers. It does all this at a reduced total cost of ownership to airlines and aircraft owners, and we believe it gives a significant performance advantage over competing airborne access points."
The entire Kontron Cab-n-Connect(TM) product family has been rigorously tested to DO-160, and the AC power input version has been successfully deployed in numerous narrow-body and wide-body commercial aircraft. The Kontron Cab-n-Connect(TM) line offers a highly cost-effective CWAP solution compared to other solutions on the market. The line also meets ongoing reduced size, weight and power requirements that avionics industry customers need to remain competitive.
Kontron also offers certified WiFi antenna kits that are compatible with both its AC and DC Cab-n-Connect(TM) access points. The integrated antenna solution is optional and eliminates cabling between the antenna and the access point in the cabin. A reduced profile version of Kontron's antenna solution for the 28VDC Cab-n-Connect(TM) is planned for the future to meet space-constrained installation requirements of some business or regional jets.
Evaluation units of the Kontron 28VDC Cab-n-Connect(TM) CWAP are available now with full production scheduled for June 2013.
