Telenor Sweden Selects Celeno-Powered Inteno ZAP 100 Video Bridges for Video-Grade, Multiscreen Wi-Fi Delivery of IPTV Services to Subscribers
Celenos OptimizAIR continues to be the technology-of-choice for operators who want to provide subscriber customers with video-grade Wi-Fi home networks. With its agreement to provision customers with the Inteno device, Telenor becomes the 75th operator to deploy Celeno technology, representing a major milestone for the chipset company.
"We are thrilled that Telenor has chosen the Inteno ZAP100 Video Bridge to deliver IPTV services wirelessly in subscribers homes," said Conny Franzen, CEO of Inteno. "Designed for easy self-installation and remote management, the ZAP100 is a robust solution that is truly plug-and-play, delivering HD and SD IPTV video streams from Ethernet-equipped broadband gateways or DVRs to multiple IP set-top boxes."
"Having now been selected by 75 carriers around the world, Celeno has unmistakably demonstrated that its chip portfolio and embedded technology is established as the world-class solution for distributing video in the home," said Gilad Rozen, CEO of Celeno. "With the explosive growth of IPTV worldwide, we expect our solutions to extend even further."
Inteno and Celeno have partnered to deliver Wi-Fi based, video-grade devices which are now deployed in multiple service providers across Scandinavia. The ZAP-100 video bridge, announced earlier in 2011, provides state of the art Wi-Fi performance with QoS optimized for carrier-grade video service.
Celenos Wi-Fi chip, integrated into the ZAP 100, is powered by OptimizAIR™ technology, enabling the seamless and reliable distribution of up to eight 1080p HD resolution video streams. It includes channel-aware scheduling and rate selection for perfect QoS and throughput/range performance and automatic channel selection for interference avoidance.
