The Multimedia over Coax Alliance introduces MoCA Access, a new broadband access specification which is expected to become available is mid-June. 

This is a new broadband access specification based on the MoCA 2.5 standard which is capable of 2.5 Gbps actual data rates and leverages the existing in-building coaxial cabling.

MoCA Access is point-to-multipoint serving up to 63 modems (clients). It is designed to co-exist with legacy services such as TV, Docsis, and mobile (4G/5G) technologies. The operating frequency range is 400MHz - 1675MHz.

Latency is less than 5ms. Throughput is up to 2.5 Gbps downstream and 2 Gbps upstream.

The organisation said that MoCA Access as a fibre extension technology is well suited for operators and ISPs that are installing fibre-to-the-basement (FTTB) or fibre deep into the network, and want to use the existing coax for connection to each apartment or unit.

MoCA Access also appeals to commercial integrators in market segments such as hospitality/hotels, restaurants, offices, and any other buildings wired with coax.

MoCA Access supports standard traffic shaping and QoS for up to eight (8) traffic classes. It also provides strong security, three transmission power modes with 45dB, 55dB or 65dB link budgets and power saving modes.
