M/A-COM, a business unit of Tyco Electronics and a leading provider of wireless radio frequency, microwave and millimeter wave components, announces that the company has joined the Multimedia over Coax Alliance, a non-profit mutual benefit corporation to develop and promote specifications for the transport of digital entertainment and information content over in-home coaxial cable. The goal of the MoCA is to create specifications and certify products that will tap into the vast amounts of unused bandwidth available on the in-home coax without the need for new connections, wiring, point of entry devices or truck rolls. It is anticipated that the first MoCA enabled products will be released within the next year.
