Avionics Certified - Ultra Small - Secure Gateway Router
The ACE Flight 1600 Gateway Router is a small form factor, avionics networking platform, purpose built to provide enterprise-class security and connectivity to and throughout the aircraft. Consolidating wireless connectivity, switching, routing, and security, means airlines, business jet operators and service providers can economically deliver new applications and services to the aircraft within a single securely connected platform.
Like all of Kontron’s avionics products, the ACE Flight 1600 Gateway Router is based on an open architecture, standards based building blocks that support long lifetime and maximum product flexibility. Two software options are available from Kontron for this product:
Features of the ACE Flight 1600 include the latest in wireless standards: 4G LTE Advanced-Pro cellular which supports on-ground connectivity throughout the world; and 802.11ac WiFi for connectivity to passengers, crew, pilot and ground operations. The platform also supports routing for both wireless and wired network connections, and has an internal L2-managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch. A typical routing application is the secure interface from client devices onboard the aircraft to SATCOM or Air-To-Ground connectivity links. The ACE Flight 1600 also supports other important communication channels such as ARINC 429 , ISDN, aircraft discrete I/O and USB ports.
The ultra-small form factor and fanless design of the ACE Flight 1600 gives installers maximum flexibility. Product integration and maintenance considerations on the aircraft have been optimized. The aircraft connections feature quick installation locking connectors for the I/O interfaces and quick-connect RF connections for the cellular and WiFi RF interfaces. The front I/O panel of the ACE Flight 1600 allows maintenance access to the dual mini-SIM slots, USB, serial, Ethernet and Display ports.
