(Paris International Air Show â€“ June 17, 2013) Esterline CMC Electronicsâ€™ new PilotViewÂ® Aircraft Network Switch (ANS) has been selected by Bombardier for the CSeries aircraft to support advanced maintenance network connectivity and maintenance operations.
Building on CMCâ€™s aircraft interface device products, the state-of-the-art ANS known as the CMA-1500, features multiple 1000/100BaseT Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and managed network switch capability in an ARINC600 LRU. As part of CMCâ€™s expanding PilotView product family, the ANS addresses the increasing need for information distribution and information management requirements associated with the CSeries aircraft advanced maintenance systems. The ANS supports carrier-grade network security and firewall features that can segment and isolate cabin/In-flight Entertainment (IFE), cockpit/Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and aircraft/maintenance communication domains.
