Entropic Communications, Inc. has announced production shipment for its MoCA 2.0 (Multimedia over Coax) silicon and software solution.
Entropic’s MoCA 2.0 is a high performing coax home networking solution, delivering a fast connectivity backbone network for whole-home high definition (HD) video and streaming media services — over existing home coax cables. Ideal for Pay-TV service operators who need to distribute broadband bandwidth around the home or rely on delivering IP video around the house using gateway/client architectures, Entropic’s MoCA 2.0 solution provides maximum throughput, enhanced reliability, critical power management features, improved security, and backwards interoperability to prior MoCA standards.
Entropic’s production version has been tested to the latest draft of the MoCA certification test plan and meets all the MoCA 2.0 performance requirements.
“The maturity of our MoCA 2.0 solution coupled with our first-to-market status, has allowed us to see significant market momentum and design-win traction for our MoCA 2.0 silicon solution — especially as Pay-TV operators migrate to IP video delivery in the home,” said Al Servati, vice president, Marketing of Connectivity Products at Entropic Communications. “The production release of our MoCA 2.0 silicon and software enables Pay-TV operators to implement their next generation architectures to deliver new services to their subscribers.”
