Telsey launches DS2 based powerline networking products

London - 6th March 2006

Telsey, a leading provider of Access Gateway, IP STB and Home Networking solutions for the distribution of broadband interactive services on FTTx and xDSL networks has announced new products based on DS2’s powerline networking technology. DS2 technology enables standard domestic cabling to carry high speed data around the home at speeds of up to 200Mbps. This simplifies the deployment of advanced residential services such as television over DSL by extending the service from the residential gateway to any power socket in the home without running any additional wires. The new products will complement Telsey’s current portfolio of residential gateways and Set Top Boxes for the delivery of video and high speed data to residential customers via ADSL lines and optical fibre.  

Powerline networking is a key enabler for new Multimedia services which have been identified as the most important growth market for telecommunications providers. Powerline networking allows operators to deliver Standard and High definition TV over DSL, gaming and high speed internet access from any electrical socket in the home, eliminating the installation costs normally associated with this sort of service.

Telsey powerline data adapters are already available, and the company continues to work to integrate powerline networking into its extensive range of broadband devices during the second and third quarter of this year.

“We are very excited about our partnership with DS2 and the technological integration of their solution in our products.” Said Roberto Mestriner, Telsey’s CTO “We believe in continuing to offer innovative solutions that will benefit end users and that will enable them to enjoy innovative broadband services anywhere and anytime and in the most straightforward way.  The solution created by Telsey and DS2 will eliminate running cables in the end users’ homes while simultaneously distributing high quality services such as video, voice and data.”
