DT to deliver wireless IPTV with Celeno

Deutsche Telekom has chosen semiconductor manufacturer Celeno to help it deliver IPTV wirelessly around the home.

The telco has selected Celeno’s CL1820 Wi-Fi chip and OptimizAIR technology to power its Speedport W 102 Bridge.

The Speedport W 102 Bridge will enable Deutsche Telekom to distribute its Entertain IPTV service wirelessly throughout the home to consumers in Germany.

The Speedport W 102 Bridge enables consumers to self install their media receiver DVR. The unit also provides consumers with the ability to place their set-tops and TVs anywhere in the home and watch time-shifted content recorded on a master DVR from any receiver in their home. Subscribers using the Speedport W 102 Bridge can expand their network to up to four video adapters in their home.

“Celeno’s optimized Wi-Fi technology far exceeds that of conventional Wi-Fi, which is merely designed for internet surfing,” said Ulrich Grote, vice-president terminal management fixed line, Deutsche Telekom. “Celeno’s solution not only allows for flawless HD video streaming, it also enables multi-room DVR with the high quality of experience our consumers demand.”
