Entone Extends Home Cloud Solution With EnterLink(TM)

Simplifies Whole-Home Media Distribution for TV Services

CUPERTINO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/17/13 -- Entone, Inc., a leading provider of Hybrid TV and Connected Home solutions, is taking a leadership role in eliminating the need for new wires and set-top boxes in consumers' homes with the introduction of its EnterLink video networking solution.

Entone's breakthrough EnterLink solution enables the distribution of TV services to numerous IP-connected devices without requiring new wiring or the necessity of operator-provisioned set-top boxes. The net result is simplified installation, greater consumer choice, and reduced costs.

"EnterLink allows operators to easily deploy hybrid television services to a plethora of IP devices throughout the connected home," expressed Mark Evensen, founder and CTO of Entone. "With EnterLink, operators have the flexibility to select a whole-home distribution technology that best fits the consumers' specific needs."

Recognized for Product of the Year Award at the recent TelcoVision show in Las Vegas, Entone's solutions offer flexible options for whole-home video distribution, including:

  • Wireless - for 5GHz (802.11ac) Wi-Fi distribution between in-home devices

  • MoCA - for HD video distribution over existing coaxial cabling

  • Boxless - for supporting multiple TV's from a single set-top box

"Wireless capabilities in hybrid set-top boxes provides a great benefit to consumers and solves a big problem for operators," stated Brett Sappington, director of research at Parks Associates. "The wireless connection makes it much more likely that consumers will connect their hybrid box to the Internet to access cloud-based services and features from the operator. The Boxless approach goes even further, providing consumers with even more content viewing options and reducing costs for operators. Given these features and MoCA support, Entone's EnterLink provides great flexibility for subscribers to access operator services within the connected home."

The most recent report from Parks Associates, "The Set-Top Box: Thick or Thin Client" (published in November 2013) discusses virtualization of features and the benefits of a Boxless approach by operators.
