Regional carrier IFE enabled by portable server


IFEC hardware specialist, Telefonix PDT, has launched the Encompass All-In-One Server, a portable IFE server for business aviation and regional aircraft operators, which the company claims can provide sufficient charge to stream content for a full day of operations.

Being portable, the server does not have the expense and certification requirements of a fully embedded system. The unit has 1TB of SSD data storage, 12+ hours of battery life and an enterprise-class WAP, with an open architecture that allows the software to be customized by content service providers, airlines, owners or operators. Regional operators also benefit from an onboard cellular radio that enables data transmission of credit card transactions and data analytics during flight.
