The portable Cab-n-Connect P100 wireless streaming platform has been introduced by Kontron.
The small form factor IFEC system utilises dual 802.11ac/abgn radios to deliver high-quality streaming for up to 100 client devices enabling airlines to support an individual aircraft’s in-flight entertainment needs.
At 9.8-inches (25 cm) x 3.5-inches (9 cm) x 12.6-inches (32 cm), the portable Cab-n-Connect P100 system features dual hot-swappable batteries that enable more than 12 hours of streaming video, in addition to offering up to 8 TB of onboard storage.
A removable storage device (RSSD) allows for quick content updates, while the operating system supports Docker Applications and Virtual Machines to further simplify IFE content management system integration. The unit provides an intuitive interface for the cabin crew to manage the system and it also provides status information via an OLED display.
Based on Kontron’s open-architecture COMe-bDV7R Computer-on-Module, the Cab-n-Connect P100 provides Intel Atom processor C3000 series server-grade processor performance with 8 GB of RAM. Different C3000 series and Broadwell-DE series processors along with memory options are possible. Further options include an integrated 4G LTE cellular modem.
