Entone to support Vodafone Netherlands for its fiber-based TV

Entone, a vendor of Cloud TV and connected home solutions, announced its deal with Vodafone Netherlands for their fiber-based TV services in the Netherlands.

Vodafone Netherlands has 5.3 million customers. Entone’s EnterLink solution enables Vodafone to deploy advanced services while also providing a flexible platform to launch emerging applications in the future.

Vodafone Thuis service is deployed over the provider’s FTTH network to enable TV services including Pause Live TV (PLTV) and video-on-demand (VOD) library from public broadcasters, HBO, Videoland, and many others.

“This is a significant step in Vodafone’s strategy, in the Netherlands and globally, to build on our market leadership in mobile communications to create a multi-service delivery platform that addresses all needs of the consumer,” said Gerard Overmars, head of Consumer Fixed at Vodafone Netherlands.

The deployment of TV services by Vodafone Netherlands reflects a global trend for mobile operators to offer a full suite of communications services, including video services.

Entone’s EnterLink video networking solution offers flexible networking options for delivering high quality video throughout the home, including 802.11ac for wireless distribution, MoCA for HD video distribution over existing coax cabling, and Boxless for supporting multiple TVs from a single set-top box.

The company EnterLink enables operators to deliver hybrid video services across a variety of IP devices throughout the connected home without requiring new wiring or the need for operator-provisioned set-top boxes.
