The Multimedia over Coax Alliance has announced that it is expecting mid-June 2017 availability for MoCA Access, a new broadband access specification capable of 2.5Gbps actual data rates.

moca 30may2017The new point-to-multipoint specification is based on the MoCA 2.5 standard and uses the existing in-building coaxial cabling, capable of serving up to 63 modems/clients. It is designed to co-exist with legacy services such as TV, DOCSIS, and cellular (4G/5G) technologies with latency of less than 5ms.

MoCA Access is claimed to be well suited for operators and ISPs that are installing fibre-to-the-basement (FTTB) or fibre deep into the network, and want to use the existing coax for connection to each apartment or unit. MoCA Access also appeals to commercial integrators in market segments such as hospitality/hotels, restaurants, offices, and any other buildings wired with coax. MoCA Access also supports standard traffic shaping and QoS for up to eight (8) traffic classes. It also provides strong security, three transmission power modes with 45dB, 55dB or 65dB link budgets and power saving modes. “MoCA Access leverages our core strengths in high performance, reliability and no new wires,” said MoCA president Charles Cerino.

“Service providers around the world can take advantage of a proven high-speed technology that is designed for all future installations. It is also the perfect complement to a wired backhaul architecture for upcoming cellular technologies such as 5G as it has very low latency.”
