Point-to-Multipoint Coax Connectivity in MDUs to Work, Learn, and Stream

Fiber to the Building, Coax and MoCA Access™ to the Unit

MoCA Access 2.5 is a high-performance multi-gigabit fiber access connectivity standard capable of data rates of 2.5 Gbps downlink and 2.0 Gbps uplink, with less than 5ms latency and operates over the existing in-building coax.

Using MoCA and pre-installed building coax costs less than 30% the total cost of ownership (TCO) for a FTTB install. (study performed by MoCA member InCoax)

The Challenge: 
MDUs and service operators keeping PON fiber installation costs under control, eliminating fiber ducting issues, and minimizing tenant unit disruptions.

The Good News:
A vast majority of MDUs built between 1960 and 1990 are wired with reusable coaxial cabling. Coaxial cabling can be the ideal, shielded conduit for PON fiber gigabit and multigigabit networking to each unit.

Using MoCA Access 2.5 technology standard, a fiber broadband solution can be deployed with minimal tenant unit disruptions.
