Cadami’s Distributed Storage Transforms Inseat IFE Systems into Powerful Edge CDN Nodes

We’re thrilled to share some exciting news from Cadami! This year at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) 2024 in Hamburg, we showcase our latest content distribution and storage technology innovation.

Unlocking the Power of Distributed Storage

At Cadami, we’ve developed a robust and efficient distributed storage system that aggregates the storage of all seats in an aircraft cabin. This technology creates a massive, reliable storage network with up to 100 TB capacity. Imagine the potential of this storage not just for licensed in-flight entertainment (IFE) content, but as a powerful CDN cache node for various applications!

We’re bringing a CDN edge node directly into the aircraft cabin by partnering with picoNETS and leveraging their Deep Edge Caching solution, compliant with SVTA’s OpenCaching standard. This means faster, more reliable access to content for passengers, and a significant reduction in reliance on costly satellite links.

Why This Matters

While distributed storage solutions are well-established in cloud computing, they often fall short in addressing the unique hardware and network requirements of in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems. At Cadami, we have tailored our storage solution to meet these specific needs, offering several key benefits:

Resilience: Our system ensures reliable data retrieval even if some seats disconnect.

Scalability: We balance the load to satisfy all passenger requests while respecting networking and computing limits.

Extensibility: Our system provides object storage for any cloud-based or data center application within the onboard data center.

A Real-World Example: Deep Edge Content Caching

One of the biggest challenges with current aircraft internet connections is supporting OTT services for all passengers. Our onboard storage solution addresses this by serving as a deep edge cache node for OTT services. This ensures high availability and performance while keeping backhaul link traffic manageable and affordable. picoNETS’ Deep Edge Caching and CDN solution, combined with our storage technology, enables seamless integration with existing and future IFE/C systems.

See It in Action at AIX 2024

We’d love for you to join us at booth 4B01 at AIX 2024 to see our technology in action. We’ll be conducting live demonstrations to show how our OpenCaching solution works within an aircraft cabin environment using picoNETS’ technology. It’s a great opportunity to discuss the technical details and benefits with our experts.

Hear from Our CEO

“We are excited to demonstrate our Distributed Storage Solution and picoNETS’ OpenCaching solution to the aviation industry,” said Andreas Dotzler, CEO of Cadami. “This highlights our commitment to improving the passenger experience through advanced technology.”

About Cadami

Since 2017, Cadami has been at the forefront of delivering high-quality multimedia content to more users without the need for hardware updates. Our solutions are already deployed on over 500 aircraft, and we’ve been featured at AIX in 2018, 2019, and 2023. This year, our focus is on showcasing our innovative Distributed Coded Caching technology, which transforms the cabin into an in-seat data center. By partnering with picoNETS and their OpenCaching solution, we’re showing how an aircraft can become a CDN edge node, helping airlines integrate new services and reduce IFC costs.
