Luster was invited to become a promoter member because of their contribution to the development of MoCA Access and promotion of MoCA home networking among operators in China.
Luster designs, manufactures and markets a wide portfolio of networking equipment targeting pay TV and Internet service providers in China, the US and Europe.
Luster has been a MoCA member for three years, most recently as a Contributor member, and has helped secure adoption of the technology by several cable MSOs in China. In addition, the company was instrumental in negotiating a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Academy of Broadcast Planning (ABP), a unit of SARPPFT. ABP is the government agency that provides research and evaluation of the various home networking standards.
The company is also expected to play a key role in soliciting trials and ultimate adoption of MoCA Access in China and the rest of the world.
Promoter membership is by invitation only and subject to a vote by all Board members. The vote was unanimous.
“We asked Luster to become a Promoter member and join our Board in recognition of theirongoing contributions to specification and market development,” said Charles Cerino, president of MoCA.
“Their knowledge and reputation among operators in China is of great value to the Alliance as we promote MoCA home networking and introduce MoCA Access.”
“We are pleased to join MoCA’s Board as China represents a growing market for MoCA’s home networking and broadband access solutions,” said Dr. Yates Yao, President of Luster.
“We have been providing FTTH and MoCA-based solutions for a long time, and will continue to leverage our operator relationships and brand name in China to help the Alliance achieve success for its home and broadband solutions.”
