As part of a study, whiteID Integrated Design developed a housing for a portable wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) and e-commerce system solution for Lufthansa Systems.
This is an all-in-one solution that unifies all technical components – such as servers and access points – in a single device: The so-called Mobile Streaming Unit (MSU).
Since no complex cabling is necessary, each MSU can be operated in the aircraft with little approval complexity – for example in the aircraft galley or in the luggage compartments. The small size and low weight make the handling easy. This enables airlines a quick launch of the portable solution without costly aircraft modifications. An integrated LTE modem also allows fast wireless updates of content while the aircraft is on the ground.
