MoCA 2.0 field trials confirm 400 Mbps net throughput

Wednesday 7 January 2015 | 23:15 CET | News

MoCA has released preliminary results of its ongoing MoCA 2.0 field tests demonstrating better than 400 Mbps net throughputs (MAC rate) in 90n percent of all coaxial cabling outlets, or paths. Net throughputs were greater than 350 Mbps for 95 percent of paths. Results were based on 108 homes tested throughout the US thus far. 

To conduct the field tests, homeowner volunteers in several states in the US received kits with an MoCA designed automated application test operating on a laptop and MoCA 2.0 certified devices from Broadcom and Entropic. The application created an operational MoCA 2.0 network and ran measurements between each pair of MoCA devices in the network at frequencies from 500 MHz to 1.6 GHz. 

 Completion of the field tests is targeted for March.
