Cab-n-Connect™ A100

Provides Best-in-Class performance for next-generation HD video streaming for dense multiple client applications on aircraft. The latest 802.11ac technology builds on 802.11n, delivering up to four times the bandwidth through new technology advancements such as 3X3 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) which allows 3-spatial streams of data to be sent simultaneously to a single client device, substantially improving bandwidth effi ciency and utilization. Enhancements in beamforming creates the most efficient path for data transmission between an access point and a client device. Now both the client device and access point work together to provide an optimized communication path for stronger and faster data transmission.

This improves throughput performance and results in battery power savings on the client device. The onboard WiNG software provides support needed for fast roaming between access points on the aircraft while eliminating sticky clients. SMART-RF intelligently adapts to the aircraft environment to provide the best client performance by automatically adjusting power and channel as needed. Smart load balancing distributes clients evenly across the access points and bands on the aircraft which improve the overall network performance. Advanced features such as daisy-chain interconnect with fail over and IP address strapping are also supported.

Enhanced security software package for Cabin WiFi using AirDefense Services Platform (ADSP). This provides best-in-class wireless network security and runs in conjunction with the Kontron Cab-N-Connect CWAP. Additional information can be found in the AirDefense product brief (download).
