[Avionics Today 03-23-2016] 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.
