Kontron has signed a new contract to supply integrated In-flight Entertainment & Connectivity (IFE&C) equipment to a major Europe airline specializing in leisure and charter travel. The initial phase of this fleet-wide deployment calls for systems to be installed on the airlines' 100+ Boeing aircraft in time for the company's busy 2020 spring and summer schedule.
Specifically, Kontron is providing flight hardware for open-architecture IFE and IFE&C systems, including the company's ACE Flight 4608 high-performance avionics server, Cab-n-Connect(TM) A100 Cabin Wireless Access Point (CWAP) and ACE FlightRemovable Storage Drives (RSSDs) following a successful proof-of-concept that took place in 2019. Kontron systems give the airline the platforms necessary to deliver wireless IFE and streaming video-on-demand, TV, games and additional entertainment choices with the ability to add additional services and applications to enhance the customer experience.
Kontron will showcase its entire line of rugged, open-architecture hardware platforms, software and services for IFE and IFE&C systems at the APEX Expo.
