Comtrend launches new wireless video adapter for whole-home HD IPTV

Comtrend Corporation is rolling out its newest BeamLink Wireless Video Adapter, designed to distribute multiple high-definition IP video streams (HD-IPTV) reliably within the home. The BeamLink WAP-5834 utilizes a new Celeno chipset and is a carrier-grade WiFi-based HD access point (AP) and client.

Now available to service providers in North America, the device is powered by the new Celeno CL1820 802.11n high performance chipset which can provide up to 120Mbps video throughput with zero packet error rate. BeamLink supports up to four different concurrent HD streams and includes a robust carrier-grade feature set.

BeamLink provides cost-effective multi-client scalability for service providers while eliminating the cost and hassle of installing new cabling throughout the home. The ease of self-installation does away with expensive truck rolls; it connects to a gateway and up to four IP set top boxes.

Comtrend designs, manufactures, and markets a wide range of networking equipment consisting of ADSL2+, Bonded DSL, VDSL2, GPON, STBs, VOIP and other networking technologies. The company has its North American headquarters in Irvine, California, and offices in Spain, Brazil, the UK, France, the Czech Republic, China and Taiwan.
