Cailabs technology multiplies the data transport capacities onboard aircraft
Global air transport currently represents come 3 billion passengers per year; everyday across the whole of the planet the equivalent of the entire population of Switzerland travels by plane. Driven by the economic dynamism and demographics of the developing countries, air traffic is undergoing constant growth with a doubling of the number of passengers every fifteen years.
This growth affects the onboard data transmission systems, which are seeing their bandwidth load increase due to the appearance of numerous new services and connected equipment: operational systems, in-flight entertainment, passenger and employee services, IoT, etc. Nevertheless, the architecture and the current technology of the cabling system within the aircraft is scarcely managing to keep up with these growing needs: heavy, hardly scalable, difficult to reconfigure.
