MoCA Demonstrates 100 Mbps over In-Home Coaxial Cables

Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) has successfully completed a large-scale field trial of the core technology for providing networking of digital home entertainment throughout a home using existing coax cabling. The large-scale trial, conducted by MoCA's founders in multiple locations, validated the capabilities of the MoCA technology to deliver 100 Mbps of usable throughput under real world conditions throughout the home -- enough for transporting multiple streams of HDTV.

MoCA founding members performed multiple tests in over 200 homes and multi-unit dwellings to validate the MoCA technology will meet the requirements set in the Market Requirements Document approved by the MoCA Board of Directors. Entropic Communications' c.LINK technology, the core technology behind the emerging MoCA standard, was used in the field trials.

With the completion of the field trial, MoCA will now focus on finalizing technical specifications and a certification process for MoCA products.

  • MoCA was founded in 2004 by Cisco Systems, Comcast, EchoStar, Entropic Communications, Motorola, Panasonic, Radio Shack and Toshiba.
