Kontron announces production availability of its all-in-one portable Cab-n-Connect P100 wireless streaming platform
AUGSBURG, Germany, – Kontron, a global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), recently announced the production availability of its portable Cab-n-Connect P100 wireless streaming platform for the commercial avionics industry.
The P100 system supports both low-end or high-end processor solutions, various storage options, and integrated wireless technology including dual 802.11ac/abgn radios that support 100 streaming client devices, a 4G LTE Advanced Pro cellular modem and an ADS-B wireless receiver.
This entry-level platform provides many of the features and performance levels found in fixed IFE equipment, but without the need for a separate STC thereby eliminating additional costs and time for installation. Adding the P100 portable open platform into Kontron's comprehensive avionics product portfolio provides customers with a range of IFE&C options enabling airlines to tailor an individual aircraft’s in-flight entertainment needs with the right equipment.
The portable Cab-n-Connect P100 system is a small, lightweight platform that features dual hot-swappable batteries that offer up to 12 hours of video streaming along with an optional power and mounting kit. The optional power kit supports aircraft power to the system, which allows the P100 to operate while charging the batteries. With up to 8 terabytes of onboard storage, the P100 delivers ample capacity to add content. In addition, the system’s removable storage device (RSSD) allows for quick content updates.
