TriaGnoSys and Siemens CMT have launched
IFEConneX, a complete inflight entertainment and communication
It incorporates an entertainment and media
distribution system into the TriaGnoSys inflight GSM solution, GSMConneX, which was launched at Aircraft Interiors in April 2011.
The lightweight modular system provides three services: GSM, WLAN
and wireless streaming of IFE content, enabling jet operators to
combine the three services.
IFEConneX enables passengers to use their own
mobile phone, tablet or laptop for calls, text messaging, emails,
internet connectivity, and for audio and video on demand (AVOD).
The solution has the capacity to stream individual content to up
to 100 passengers simultaneously.
Axel Jahn, Managing Director of TriaGnoSys, said, “This
is the perfect solution for any aircraft that does not have an
embedded IFE system. It is a complete communication and
entertainment system in one small box.”
TriaGnoSys’ business jet solution AeroBTS+, an integrated server
and GSM base station. Software configuration options include the
GSM service alone, GSM plus IFE, GSM plus WiFi, or all three
services. Also, WiFi and Wireless IFE can be installed without
GSM, while retaining the option to upgrade.
necessary airborne hardware is small and light enough to be
mounted within the ceiling panel and installation is very simple. For external connectivity, it connects to the aircraft’s existing
communications system, and has the flexibility to be used over any radio link, including SwiftBroadband, Ku-band, Ka-band and direct
Gerald Schreiber, Vice President of
Technology at Siemens CMT, said, “This is highly versatile
technology. Passengers can use their own mobile devices for
inflight connectivity and to access video and music content, based
on an intuitive user interface that makes it very simple to use.
The fact it incorporates both IFE content and connectivity makes
it possible to provide live updates, for example for news, sport
and destination information.”
The solution will be on
display on Booth 829 at the APEX Expo in Seattle from 13-15
