Celeno and TI wireless HD for the home

April 29, 2009

Celeno Communications, provider of semiconductors for multimedia Wi-Fi home networking applications, is working with Texas Instruments to enable next-generation cable modem gateways with wireless HD technology for Cable HD IPTV applications. Celeno’s high-performance CL1300 Wi-Fi chip is now interoperable with Texas Instruments’ Puma 5 family of DOCSIS 3.0 products.

The joint technology enables MSOs to address next generation Cable IPTV whole-home distribution requirements and multi-room DVR use cases with robust, wireless HD home networking. Cable MSOs can benefit from the advantages of HD Wi-Fi such as: flexibility to address STB’s in coax-less rooms, video distribution to devices beyond STB’s (e.g., portable devices and personal computers), and reduction of installation expenditures.
