The Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) has joined the Broadband Forum, where it will work with the organisation to utilise its data modelling and management standards for integration into MoCA Access.

moca 28 nov 2017“The Broadband Forum is pleased to welcome MoCA into membership. We have always believed that the industry needs a diverse portfolio of technologies that addresses all the many use cases that exist in the global broadband industry,” said Robin Mersh, Broadband Forum CEO. “We are happy to share our expertise in broadband management and data modelling.”

MoCA Access is based on the MoCA 2.5 specification, which offers actual data rates of 2.5Gbps.

“Membership in the Broadband Forum is part of our strategy to build relationships and partner with other organisations that have the software tools and the international reputation that promotes and establishes MoCA Access as a viable access technology in domestic and international markets,” said Charles Cerino, MoCA president.

As a fibre extension technology, MoCA Access is 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.
