Inflight Dublin debuted the next generation Everhub™ Portable Wireless server at APEX Expo 2019, while exhibiting amongst the top industry specialists. 

The state-of-the-art hardware was on display for airline and industry representatives alike to experience first hand its unique design which features a touch screen, user-friendly control panel.

The debut was recognised by several of the top aviation media outlets, including the APEX Expo Daily magazine, which is handed out each day of the Expo.

The front cover feature was present in the Day 2 version of the publication, including an interview with Inflight Dublin’s CEO, John White, who discusses the innovative capabilities and features of the new hardware. 

"The unique thing about our server is a touchscreen control panel where you can see the battery usage, confirm the flight number and do troubleshooting locally, but the crew can also view the interface on their devices"

John White, Inflight Dublin's CEO.

The server can be powered by batteries or directly from the aircraft. It delivers secure, high definition, browser-based DRM content to 75 passengers per unit. The Everhub™ portable server minimises logistics costs through its hot-swappable battery configuration and remote loading of content. 

 

 

“One of the other unique features is that we have a solid-state drive in the back, so content can be updated in a matter of seconds – you just pop one out and replace it with the new one.”

John White, Inflight Dublin’s CEO.
