Insys aero has launched a new solution for IFEC applications – the APX330 wireless access point. APX330 is suitable for use in commercial aircraft as well as smaller aircraft and helicopters.
The wireless access point enables multimedia streaming, web access, VoIP telephony, online gaming and sales applications, and can also be used as a terminal for remote maintenance. For streaming applications, each access point can manage more than 70 clients. The product’s Active Spectrum Management enables distributed management of hundreds of clients and automatic global load balancing between single access points.
The product was designed to meet Quality of Service (QoS) standards. It features automatic error detection, so APX330 restarts independently if necessary and resets the system to the last functional state. The same function kicks in in case of irregularities during firmware updates. The system uses heavily encrypted images for protection against data loss and manipulation.
The access point supports the latest dual 802.11ac wi-fi standard and is downward compatible to 802.11a/b/g/n. The hardware and software are all in-house developments, ensuring life-long customer support. As part of the development and quality assurance process for the APX330, Insys aero developed the quality management tool AvioXnet STL, a test and streaming platform for more than 180 clients (Android, iOS and Linux devices). This tool enables automatic testing and analysis of dynamic, mobile or even time-staggered loads, including deterministic repetitions.
