RA'ANANA, Israel -- Celeno Communications, a leading provider of semiconductors for multimedia Wi-Fi home networking applications, today announced that iiNet, Australia's second largest DSL broadband provider, has selected Celeno-enabled Wi-Fi Ethernet bridges to support wireless delivery of its fast-growing IPTV services including Video on Demand (VoD) and other interactive video applications.
