The world of In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) is entering a new era as airlines and suppliers prepare to grapple with new customer demands. David Bartlett, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of Panasonic Avionics, told the Passenger Experience Conference in Hamburg, Germany this week that the traditional ways of providing content to airlines is changing.
“The traditional way with a server on the plane doesn’t scale. So a cloud based solution is the way to go. We can tailor content for every flight. We want to provide a predictive capability. The industry is moving very fast. People’s preferences are moving very fast. The important thing is we have to learn more cohesively as a industry,” he said.
