Aachen, Germany - March 6, 2006 - Intellon Corporation, the world leader in HomePlug® standards-based powerline communications (PLC) integrated circuits, today announced that devolo AG of Aachen, Germany is using Intellon's HomePlug AV powerline communications integrated circuits (ICs) in devolo's new dLAN 200 Ethernet adapters.
The new adapters enable service providers and consumers to distribute multiple streams of high definition video and digital audio over existing in-home powerlines, making them the ideal solution for high definition IPTV, triple-play and multi-media entertainment applications.
“devolo's popular dLAN 85 Ethernet adapters, which use Intellon's HomePlug 1.0 with Turbo ICs, have already been adopted by major European telecoms for use in their IPTV services,” said Heiko Harbers, CEO of devolo. “Given the market success of these products, it was logical for us to use Intellon's latest HomePlug AV ICs in our next-generation dLAN 200 adapters.”
“HomePlug AV has the bandwidth and robustness to deliver multiple streams of rich entertainment along with other digital traffic,” said Charlie Harris, chairman and CEO of Intellon. “This is why service providers and leading equipment manufacturers such as devolo are using Intellon's HomePlug AV ICs as the whole-house networking solution for multi-media entertainment and high definition IPTV rollouts.”
The new HomePlug AV products from devolo are on display at CeBIT in the Intellon booth, Hall 14, Stand H13, and in the devolo booth, Hall 15, Stand D12.
