CableLabs and MoCA

CableLabs and MoCA have formally established a cooperative
relationship to share published and draft specifications as well as proposed documentation to ensure seamless integration of each other's technology within the home.

CableLabs and MoCA have always operated separately but in parallel. Both organizations will continue to develop specifications independently, but
acknowledge the benefits of cooperation.

  • In May, The Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA), which promotes the distribution of digital video and entertainment through existing coaxial cable in the home, named Charles Cerino as its new president. Cerino is currently vice president of new media development at Comcast Corporation, where he evaluates new technologies and how best to incorporate their value into the network. He joined Comcast in 1978 as a system engineer helping to build a cable infrastructure in the Philadelphia suburbs.
