Row 44 has selected Kontron's Cab-n-Connect wireless access point for its Ku-band wi-fi installations, the equipment manufacturer announces at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) expo in Anaheim.
"Cab-n-Connect is specifically designed to satisfy the increased connectivity expectations of today's passengers while also meeting strict size, weight and cost restrictions of commercial airlines and we are happy to be providing this exciting technology to Row 44's customers as well," says Andy Mason, Kontron's commercial avionics business line manager.
The connectivity provider also exclusively uses Kontron's server management units and modem data units in its Ku-band inflight broadband installations with carriers such as Southwest Airlines and Norwegian.
Rockwell Collins has also named Kontron a preferred supplier of wireless access points and onboard servers. It has used the equipment in its Paves in-flight entertainment system and Skybox, which provides Apple's television product onboard aircraft.
Kontron also announces that it has received an approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its Ace Flight 600 airborne server.
