Boeing has selected Panasonic Avionics to supply the Cabin Services System (CSS) on the new family of Boeing 777X aircraft.
Panasonic is currently the supplier of CSS on all Boeing 787 Dreamliners and 747-8 intercontinental aircraft.
Panasonic’s CSS is an Ethernet-based network that provides core cabin functions such as passenger address, cabin interphone and environmental controls.
CSS directly integrates with external subsystems, such as cabin lighting and other airplane member systems across the airframe networks, including the In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) solutions.
Paul Margis, president and chief executive officer for Panasonic Avionics said:
“This agreement is the reflection of a growing relationship between Panasonic and Boeing. It shows the success of our efforts to combine reliability crucial for Cabin Services Systems with continued innovation benefitting flight crew and passengers, something that’s core to the 777X programme.”
