Charter Communications is working with Atlanta-based itaas Inc., to deploy some 3.5 million Enhanced TV Binary Interchange (EBIF)-enabled set-tops within the cableco’s 24 Motorola systems.

The partnership is not a new one; itaas developed the initial network architecture design and customized the EBIF platform software for Charter’s networks. Currently, itaas is performing the integration, certification testing, deployment and support for the platform and applications within each system; and it has deployed the EBIF platform in approximately 1.6 million Motorola set-tops in nine Charter systems.

“itaas knows the ‘ins and outs’ of networks and has experience deploying the comprehensive EBIF platform, which includes the EBIF user agent, EBIF backend as well as interactive applications throughout cable systems,” notes Doug Ike, Charter’s vice president/Advanced Video and Applications Engineering. “With the EBIF platform in place, we will be able to provide interactive applications that enhance advertising capabilities. It also provides the foundation for an interactive TV experience for consumers.”
