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 applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
