Turkish Technic has completed the certification process of a server and wireless access point (WAP), which will form part of a new range of in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems. Turkish Technic says that the server and WAP “surpass the competition”, with features including easy integration with various software applications and flexibility in determining equipment configuration according to current system requirements. The company, which is also a major MRO provider, has completed full function tests and trials of the server and WAP in extreme conditions, following which the products have been approved by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
These electronics add to the company’s in-house production capabilities for the aviation sector, following the production approval of its aviation seats and galley ranges.
The server serves as a media source, providing the option of storing media (movies, videos, newspapers, magazines etc), internet access and sharing the content with passengers on board aircraft. Developed and produced by Turkish Technic, the server provides 6 TB of data storage, which is three-times more than some rival models. The WAP has 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band radio.
Commenting on the launch of the connectivity products, Ahmet Karaman, general manager of Turkish Technic stated, “During these challenging times that affect aviation and the whole world, our commitment to improve our software and hardware capabilities continues.
“Being a leading MRO company, we work to improve our service quality as well as our product range. With an aim to provide best connectivity products in the market, our team continues to bring their best efforts forward to achieve that goal. After developing and producing our aircraft galley and seats, we now add our servers and WAP products to the list. We would not be able to do all this without the passion and commitment of our people. I thank them for their tireless efforts and cooperation.”
