TriaGnoSys and Siemens CMT have launched IFEConneX, a complete inflight entertainment and communication (IFEC) solution.

 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.”

IFEConneX extends 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.

All the 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 air-to-ground links.

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 September 2011.
