Consolidated Communications will deploy Entone Technologies Inc.’s “Hydra” Internet-protocol-video gateway to support its IPTV-service launch.

The telco -- which has some 245,000 access lines in Illinois and Texas -- deployed Entone’s “StreamLiner Network Video Recorder” for its video-on-demand rollout last year.

By using Hydra, Consolidated will eliminate the need for set-tops, “reducing the installation costs and complexities associated with IP-video deployment,” Entone said.

The vendor added that its Hydra gateway can deliver up to three independent television channels to any combination of up to six television sets.
