Ismaning, Bavaria, Germany, 2021/11/30 - Kontron today announces the availability of its latest generation of Cab-n-Connect™ Wireless Access Points based on Wi-Fi 6 - Kontron.com.
Kontron, a leading global provider of embedded computing Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFE&C) solutions, today announces the availability of its latest generation of Cab-n-Connect™ Wireless Access Points based on Wi-Fi 6.
The Cab-n-Connect™ A200 provides a backwards compatible version to Kontron’s previous generation Cab-n-Connect™ CWAPs and allows airlines to easily upgrade their existing CWAPs without changning any wiring on the aircraft. The Cab-n-Connect™ A201 provides a version that meets the ARINC 628 CWAP standard which utilizes a different connector interface and is preferred for linefit installations. Both products use the same Extreme WiNG Enterprise WAP engine which provides the highest level of efficiency and performance based on 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 technology, optimized for video streaming in dense multi-client applications within the aircraft cabin and is optimally suited for high density application environments, providing intelligent edge capabilities with the highest level of client services without compromising security monitoring. This Cab-n-Connect™ is the only avionics certified CWAP that provides a dedicated, dual-band sensor that continuously scans and can detect security threats real-time, eliminating the risk of vulnerability or attacks, while also optimizing RF performance automatically. The CWAP delivers the highest level of security services, beginning with support for the Wi-Fi Alliance WPA3 security certifications and also provides a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context based access security.
“We are excited to provide the aviation industry with these next generation cabin Wi-Fi systems” says RJ McLaren, Avionics System Product Manager for Kontron. “The increased security features, efficiency improvements through new channel-sharing capabilies as well as built-in intelligence at the edge will significantly improve the passeneger experience while giving operators and the airlines more control and options within their wireless network on the aircraft.”
Kontron is an active member of the Seamless Air Alliance and the Cab-n-Connect™ CWAP aligns with the features and requirements within the Seamless Release standards. The A200 CWAP will be part of the Seamless Air Alliance booth demonstration at the 2021 APEX Expo on December 1 2. Kontron will also be presenting its latest avionics products there.
