Telenor Sweden opts for Celeno's Wi-Fi IPTV solution

Telenor Sweden is deploying Celeno-powered Inteno video bridges to offer customers Wi-Fi access to IPTV services across multiple screens. The operator is the 75th service provider globally to choose Celeno's Wi-Fi solution for whole-home networking of multiple HD IPTV streams.

The solution offered by Inteno and Celeno 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. Celeno's Wi-Fi chip, integrated into the ZAP100, 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.

The ZAP100 is a plug-and-play device, designed to deliver HD and SD IPTV video streams from Ethernet-equipped broadband gateways or DVRs to multiple IP set-top boxes."

"With the explosive growth of IPTV worldwide, we expect our solutions to extend even further," said Gilad Rozen, CEO of Celeno.

Telenor Sweden is a provider of tele, data and media communication services; it counts some 2 million subscribers.

Celeno's chipset portfolio and OptimizAIR technology enable the wireless distribution of multiple and simultaneous HD video streams throughout the home. The technology has been integrated into numerous OEM Wi-Fi devices and have been deployed with over 60 service providers worldwide. It was founded in 2005 and counts among its backers companies like Cisco Systems, Greylock Partners, Liberty Global and Pitango Venture Capital.

Celano has scored wins with its Wi-Fi IPTV delivery recently in Australia and Germany.
