MoCA® Goes into Trials with Six European Service Providers

June 13, 2012 - - ANGA Cable, Hall 10, Level 1, Booth P29 — The Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA®) announced today that MoCA technology is now being trialed by six service providers in Europe. This strong traction in Europe comes at a time when MoCA is increasingly being perceived by service providers worldwide as the most reliable in-home backbone for a hybrid home network that needs to handle an ever-increasing variety of media services.

“Going into trials with six European service providers demonstrates that there is serious demand in Europe for a reliable in-home backbone capable of extending and enhancing Wi-Fi® networks and providing the QoE that consumers expect from an ever-expanding range of media services,” said Charles Cerino, MoCA president.”

MoCA supports multiple streams of content - including HDTV, 3D, gaming, and OTT - via an IP-over-coax connection to numerous in-home devices, including HDTVs, game consoles and PCs. MoCA technology also provides the connection without interfering with existing technologies or services already in use.

MoCA is the worldwide standard for home entertainment networking and the only standard in deployment in all three pay TV segments (cable, satellite and Telco/IPTV). MoCA is included in the DLNA stack and the IEEE 802.1AS standard, as well as the IEEE’s P1905.1 specification.
