OCALA, Fla. -- Intellon Corporation, a leading provider of HomePlug-compatible integrated circuits (ICs) for home networking, networked entertainment, broadband over powerline (BPL) and smart grid applications, today announced that H3C, one of the world’s leading IP technology and solution providers, has selected Intellon’s INT6300 IC for use in H3C’s Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) solutions for multiple dwelling unit (MDU) apartment complexes in China. Trials are ongoing with deployments expected to begin in 2008.

H3C will be demonstrating its EoC digital cable solution at the International CATV Technology Conference (ICTC) held October 31 through November 2 in Hangzhou, China. H3C will use EoC technology for high-speed, two-way communication for Video on Demand (VoD) back channel and broadband Internet applications.

H3C selected Intellon’s advanced INT6300 solution for these important applications based on extensive lab and field tests. H3C’s field tests demonstrated that Intellon’s EoC solution can reliably distribute data over more than 500 meters of coax with multiple splitters along the way without requiring the cable operator to change the existing cabling within the MDU. The trials — involving thousands of residents to date — are ongoing as H3C moves forward with plans to deliver this new service to Chinese apartment dwellers in 2008.

“Delivering quality broadband and VoD back channel using the existing cabling to residents in large apartment buildings over coax is challenging for many reasons,” said York Liao, Director of SMB/SOHO Products Development at H3C. “Our trials so far have been quite successful and the Intellon solution demonstrates that it provides reliable and robust two-way connectivity even in harsh conditions.”
