announces that the leading triple-play service provider in Slovenia and Croatia, Amis Telekom, has selected Celeno-enabled Wi-Fi Ethernet bridges to support its fast-growing “AmisTV2.0” IPTV service.
The Celeno-powered Ethernet bridges are the home-networking cornerstone of the Amis digital TV service. The Ethernet bridges allow for a simple, fast plug-and-play self installation with no need for installing new wires. The Celeno-based solution also provides the infrastructure to support a future evolution towards streaming IPTV content to portable screens and devices so consumers will enjoy “AmisTV2.0” content anytime, anywhere.
The “AmisTV2.0” service offers VoD, network PVR and time shifting of the 30 most popular TV channels, allowing viewers to watch their favorite TV content on their own terms. The service runs on a hybrid network that combines IPTV content managed by Amis, with free-to-air digital terrestrial broadcasts.
Celeno’s Wi-Fi chipset, powered by the OptimizAIR technology suite, improves standards-based Wi-Fi to deliver robust HD video with whole-home coverage. It achieves up to 10 times the range and throughput compared to legacy 802.11n solutions while maintaining a robust signal with effectively no packet loss.
The OptimizAir feature set includes the first field-proven Implicit Transmit Digital Beamforming MIMO technique, which enables live, concurrent streaming of multiple HD streams to the edge of the house, reliably and cost effectively. By using phased array radar-like signal processing techniques, it delivers the Wi-Fi signals directly to the targeted set-top boxes, fighting off interferences without polluting neighboring apartments or systems with unnecessary transmit energy.
