MoCA is developing a new specification that targets multiple dwelling units (MDUs).
The new MoCA Access will be based on the current MoCA 2.0 standard which is capable of 1 Gbps net throughputs.
Helge Tiainen, Senior Product Manager, InCoax Networks has been named as head of Moca’s Access Group.
“We’re taking an existing spec, adding it to the hardware, and working with the same chip,” Tiainen told Broadband TV News.
Rob Gelphman, MoCA’s VP of marketing, said MoCA Access was deliverable for early to mid 2017.
The recently approved MoCA 2.5 specification will also be integrated in the new specification serving as a technology roadmap on which to plan for future deployments. MoCA 2.5 is capable of up to 2.5 Gbps and is backward interoperable with MoCA 2.0.
MoCA Access will assist operators in taking fibre deeper into the network or building, using existing coax infrastructure to improve performance.
