Amino Selects Celeno Wi-Fi to Wirelessly Enable After-Market IPTV/OTT Set-Top Boxes Worldwide

Amino Communications, leaders in IPTV/OTT solutions, and Celeno Communications, a provider of high performance Wi-Fi chipsets and software for HD multimedia home networking application, today announced that Amino’s A140/A540 set-top boxes (STBs) will now be complemented by a Wi-Fi USB solution using Celeno’s video-grade Wi-Fi technology.

The Amino Wi-Fi USB dongle enables service providers to offer a video-grade Wi-Fi solution that accelerates the adoption of IP-based video services by enabling after-market IP STBs to wirelessly receive HD content. Powered by Celeno’s field-proven OptimizAIR™ technology, the device maximizes range, throughput, and signal consistency and ensures low packet drop, jitter, and latency, while achieving superior Quality of Service (QoS) for perfect, lossless video streaming.

By combining an 802.11n MAC, baseband and 3x3 radio on a single silicon with a memory-less USB architecture, the device significantly reduces the service providers’ cost of deployment as it is simply plugged into an external USB connector on a STB or other display device. This effectively transforms the STB or TV into a video-grade Wi-Fi connected device to ensure plug-and-play, self-install simplicity.

“In a highly competitive market, service providers need to offer innovative video services to retain and attract customers,” says Amino’s VP of Product Management, Mike Greenall. “This solution, embedded with Celeno’s best-in-class Wi-Fi technology, will enable our customers to quickly, seamlessly and cost effectively enable STBs for wireless HD video streaming while maintaining high QoS and QoE. This will increase our customers’ satisfaction and significantly enhance their competitive positioning.”

“Celeno’s 3x3 video-grade technology with digital beam forming meets and even exceeds the rigorous requirements for the wireless distribution of IPTV and OTT content,” says Gilad Rozen, CEO of Celeno. “It combines high performance for flicker-free video with the flexibility and ease of use required by today’s discerning consumer.”

The device operates in both the 2.4GHz and the uncongested 5GHz frequency channels and works with legacy home networks as well as advanced concurrent dual-band networks.

The Amino Wi-Fi solution will be demonstrated at IBC 2012 at the Amino stand, Hall 5. B40. Celeno will also be exhibiting at IBC 2012 and can be found in Hall 3 Area A19.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
