Aircraft Interiors Expo 2011

Thompson Aerospace made a splash at the 2011 Aircraft Interiors Expo in April with their new lightweight, seat-centric In Flight Entertainment (IFE) system, 1NetTM. The 1NetTM system is a fully redesigned aircraft network allowing for a variety of information and entertainment options to be added to an aircraft at will.

A system based on Power over Ethernet (POE), 1NetTM combines both data and power in a single cable, cutting the number of cables for an aircraft in half. Next 1NetTM uses state of the art electronics to reduce the size, weight and power consumption of each component allowing for a simple network of Ethernet Switch Power Units (ESPUs) installed behind the wall to support an entire aircraft of in-seat displays.

Once the 1NetTM network is in place, the fun begins. A variety of current and future modular clients will be plugged into the network allowing for airlines to customize their fleet. The most of notable of these modular clients is passenger portal. The passenger portal delivers information and entertainment to passengers ranging from information about their destination to in-flight movies and music to the ability to make purchases for both on aircraft and off aircraft delivery. In conjunction with the passenger portal is the cabin attendant portal, designed to both allow cabin crew members to control the 1NetTM system and perform their regular functions with reduced workload.
