McSlarrow bans OCAP acronym
Kyle McSlarrow, president and CEO of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, put the big kibosh on one of the industry's more awkward acronyms: OCAP, for OpenCable Applications Platform. "This is really a case where the acronym completely hides the ball," McSlarrow said. For that reason, "I have, tongue in cheek, banned the use of 'OCAP' at the NCTA." The replacement term: Open Cable Platform.
