At the World Airline Entertainment Association (WAEA) trade show in Seattle last month, EMS Technologies introduced a so-called cabin network Xcelerator, billed as a wide-area network optimization device for use with EMS’s family of high-speed satcom data products. The bandwidth expansion of the CNX, claimed EMS Technologies, can increase communication throughput by up to 400 percent. The aircraft-installed CNX and its companion product, the EMS Xstream 4800 (installed by the user on the ground), are said to form a link capable of dramatically enhancing Inmarsat Swift64 datalink performance. “More network capacity means you can do more with your network connection,” said Ray Larkin, director of sales and marketing for aeronautical satcom products at EMS Technologies. “With the CNX installed, a 128-kbps Swift64 data connection can look like a 512-kbps connection. With an EMS HSD-128 and CNX combination, you have a near-broadband data connection.”
