Triple-play telco iTV-3, which is building out a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in Central Illinois, has selected Entone's EnterLink video networking solution to offer hybrid IPTV services.

On the TV front, iTV-3 already offers more than 300 channels, including 150 HD programmes, and video-on-demand (VOD). With Entone it will add whole-home, multiscreen, hybrid TV services to the mix. Entone's EnterLink enables the distribution of TV services to numerous IP-connected devices without requiring new wiring or the necessity of operator-provisioned set-top boxes.

"To better meet the changing demands of our customers and to strengthen our competitive position, we needed a reliable solution that was easy to install," said Levi Dinkla, vice president of iTV-3. "Entone's EnterLink solution offers everything we need today and also provides us a flexible platform to quickly rollout advanced features like whole-home DVR and cloud-based services without replacing our set-top boxes."

EnterLink offers Wi-Fi (802.11ac), MoCA and Boxless for whole-home video distribution.

"With our EnterLink solution, distributing high quality video services throughout the home is simplified, thus, reducing installation costs for delivering a whole-home entertainment experience," said Mark Evensen, founder and CTO of Entone. "We look forward to supporting iTV-3 as they continue to rollout new compelling services."
