Infineon Technologies, ViaSat Inc., and ZyXEL Communications Corp. have joined their technologies to introduce a new broadband terminal package for the Multi-Tenant Unit (MTU) market.

The new system called 'Constellation' allows delivery of Internet access and broadband applications via satellite link to an in-building switch and access for individual units using conventional copper wiring. It is expected to enable service providers to offer low-cost broadband access to multi-tenant unit customers in reach of satellites using the existing in-building infrastructure.

The Infineon 10BaseS (Ethernet over VDSL) chipset is integrated into the ZyXEL VDSL VES-1012 Ethernet Switch, which routes broadband services over existing telephone copper wires in multi-tenant buildings. The high-speed return channel and bandwidth-on-demand (BoD) features of the ViaSat LinkStar broadband satellite terminals provide two-way broadband access to the ZyXEL switch, and then on to building tenants.
