MoCA enters broadband access market with MoCA Access

Thursday 9 June 2016 | 11:02 CET | News

MoCA, the Multimedia over Coax Alliance, said it will be entering the broadband access market with the development of MoCA Access, a new specification targeting multiple dwelling units (MDUs). The specification will be based on the current MoCA 2.0 standard which is capable of 1 Gbps net throughputs. The recently approved MoCA 2.5 specification will also be integrated in the new specification, serving as a technology roadmap on which to plan for future deployments. MoCA 2.5 is capable of up to 2.5 Gbps. and is backward interoperable with MoCA 2.0.

MoCA Access will be suitable for a number of market segments addressing network access, such as, for example, operators driving fibre deep into the network or to the building (FTTB) and want to leverage existing wiring without sacrificing performance, or ISPs building fibre-based networks that terminate the optical signal in the basement and use the existing coax to reach each unit or apartment that addresses the market now. The system will also be useful for commercial integrators designing and installing networks in hospitality, restaurants, offices and any other buildings that have coax already installed, for example.
