AT&T Labs Joins MoCA

AT&T Laboratories has joined the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA), an open, industry driven initiative promoting distribution of digital video and entertainment through existing coaxial
cable in the home.

"We are evaluating MoCA technology as one option for distributing IP-based video services in customers' homes," said David Deas, vice president networks & services, AT&T Laboratories Inc.

Other MoCA members include Comcast, Cox Communications, EchoStar Technologies, and Verizon, amongst others.

  • A MoCA network can transport video, voice and data to TVs, set-tops, DVRs, game boxes, WiFi repeaters and PCs at physical speeds of up to 270 Mbps homes and has been field tested across America in real world situations to deliver over a net usable 100 Mbps at greater than 97% of coax outlets.
