San Ramon, CA – May 29, 2006–The Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA - TM) is demonstrating home networking of multiple HD and SD streams over in-home coax cable and splitters using interoperable MoCA products from multiple members at the Telecommunications Industry Association’s (TIA) GLOBALCOMM™ 2006 at McCormick Place in Chicago next week. The demonstrations feature an 8-node MoCA network simultaneously sharing three broadcast HD videos, eight SD videos, broadband data, and interactive gaming for a total of more than 90 Mbps of full motion, no-excuses digital entertainment.
The demonstration includes set-top boxes, Ethernet-MoCA bridges and Wi-Fi routers, all of that have embedded MoCA technology. “A broadband home network capable of IPTV, whole-home DVR and triple play is now available and demonstrated by MoCA,” explained MoCA President, Ladd Wardani. “The MoCA standard provides all of the ingredients telecom and cable industries need for a broadband entertainment home network.”
MoCA supports a trusted and reliable home domain, using the secure in-home coax and splitters as-is, and with QoS for integrated video, voice, data, gaming and retail devices. MoCA coexists with the existing cable upstream and downstream, by reliably operating above 1 Ghz. MoCA delivers full broadcast quality no-excuses video, including multiple simultaneous HD streams. Field trials proved MoCA delivers greater than 100Mbps of net usable data rate, from a 270Mbps maximum PHY rate, in 97% of the coax outlets across the USA. MoCA deployment already exceeded 10,000 homes without problem.
MoCA technology was built from the ground up to enable telecom providers, MSOs, other service providers and CE products to establish an entertainment home network using in-home coax. MoCA addressed the need to minimize customer calls and truck rolls while also providing a previously unparalleled level of operator visibility into network and physical status and quality of the home coax environment. MoCA is the in-home technology backbone for Verizon's FIOS TV. MoCA members are currently shipping high volume of MoCA nodes, including bridges, routers, STBs and ONTs to other entertainment networking industries.
