Amino Communications has selected Celeno Communications' Wi-Fi solutions for use in its IPTV set-top boxes.

Celeno's OptimizAir Wi-Fi chipsets will be used worldwide by Amino to help distribute IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) services throughout homes via Wi-Fi home networking applications.

With the deal in hand, Celeno is now a preferred technology partner for Amino. Financial terms of the agreement weren't released.

"With Celeno's field-proven Wi-Fi technology and rich Wi-Fi chipset portfolio, we are able to offer our telco customers devices that combine all the quality they've come to expect from Amino devices with additional wireless functionality," said Amino's CEO Donald McGarva.

Amino and Celeno will offer the following wireless joint solutions in the marketplace:

  • Wi-Fi/Ethernet bridges powered by Celeno's CL1830 SoC to wirelessly enable after-market IP set-top boxes, including the Aminet A130, A140 and A540. These bridges will enable whole-home wireless PVR functionality, allowing the consumption of centrally stored content anywhere in the home.
  • Wi-Fi/USB dongles powered by Celeno's CLR250 chip to wirelessly enable after-market IP set-top boxes to receive HD IPTV and OTT content.

"Our Wi-Fi portfolio provides superior home networking infrastructure to customers such as Amino, combining high performance for flicker-free video with the flexibility and ease of use required by consumers," said Celeno CEO Gilad Rozen.

Celeno unveiled its video-grade CLR250 chipset at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month.
