has chosen Intellon’s
INT5500 and INT6300 ICs to enable in-home distribution of KT’s MegaTV-branded IPTV services over phone lines in homes throughout South Korea. Intellon’s ICs are used in Millinet’s Mega Bridge MMB-100/200 adapters, supplied when customers subscribe to KT MegaTV services. These adapters supply the IPTV content over existing phone lines in the home, allowing customers to view content over TVs plugged into any convenient phone jack.
According to Millinet, homes in South Korea have a phone jack in nearly every room, making content delivery over existing phone lines especially convenient for customers. Millinet selected both the Intellon HomePlug 1.0 with Turbo (85 Mbps PHY-rate) and the Intellon HomePlug AV (200 Mbps PHY-rate) ICs for their solutions. Both solutions are easy to install, easy to use and robust. They deliver reliable, “entertainment-grade” standard and high definition television services to subscribing viewers.
