Astronics Corporation, a leading provider of advanced technologies for global aerospace, defense and other mission critical industries, today announced the introduction of CabinAXe, the industry's first Wi-Fi 6E enabled Cabin Wireless Access Point (CWAP). CabinAXe introduces unparalleled Wi-Fi performance, marking the first time a CWAP will utilize the recently adopted Wi-Fi 6E standard. Astronics has shipped over 16,000 previous generation CWAPs, and CabinAXe continues the evolution of Astronics' CWAP firsts by offering the industry's first tri-radio CWAP integrating Wi-Fi 6E.
Wi-Fi 6E makes use of up to 1.2GHz of unlicensed spectrum in the 6GHz band. This new authorization provides less congestion and larger channel widths for greater connectivity throughput.
Wi-Fi 6E benefits include:
-Supports new additions for future IoT applications: Includes future classes of personal electronic devices. Separately, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Zigbee radios provide low-powered sensing device hosting and support remote sensors and beacons.
-Backwards compatibility: Supports all previously released Wi-Fi bands and standards, compatible with ARINC 628 CWAP installations, certified for retrofit applications and ready for line fit applications. Also, it is compatible with other Summit Line components.
-Passenger experience improvements: Provides multi-gigabit Wi-Fi speeds and dynamically steers traffic for improved user experience. Provides higher capacity with support for up to 513 associated client devices per radio.
