Kontron Australia has developed the KISS 4U KTC-5520 Transportation rack mount server to handle passenger infotainment applications used in trains.
Enabling remote management and with long-term availability, the application-ready standard platform combines a maximum of two Intel Xeon 5600 series processors.
The Kontron KISS 4U KTC-5520 Transportation is also compliant to rail standards, EN 50155, EN 50121 and EN 60068.
The high simultaneous data processing capacity of Kontron's KISS 4U KTC-5520 Transportation server enhances passenger infotainment applications such as video on demand (VoD).
Fitted with up to eight processor cores and 16 threads, the rack mount server is able to distribute several hundred HD-quality video streams.
A high performance density allows the Kontron KISS to consolidate applications previously deployed at separate locations. Passenger information, digital signage and internet-on-train are consolidated with a single server system saving space and costs.
Kontron's KISS 4U KTC-5520 Transportation server is also suitable for other mobile applications including outside broadcasting vans, roadshow trucks and mobile video observation.
The Kontron KISS 4U KTC-5520 Transportation has been through all the procedures required for railroad certification including EN 60068 tests, EN 50155 and EN 50121 ensuring service readiness at different temperatures, shock and vibration resistance, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and sensitivity (EMS).
The platform doesn’t need any extra certification saving time-to-market and reducing overall costs.
Operators gain extra value with the Kontron KISS 4U KTC-5520 Transportation server’s remote management capabilities.
An integrated management processor (IMP) supports VGA/2D, BMC and KVM/VM over IP (iKVM) to enable real-time virtualisation of the keyboard, monitor and mouse (KVM) plus virtual media from any external PC.
The rack mount servers offer an interface independent of operating systems and platforms, which may be used to monitor system temperature, voltage and fan status. The integrated out-of-band management allows the system administrator access anytime, regardless of whether the system is turned on or not.
