MoCA Home™ 2.5

MoCA 2.5, capable of up to 2.5 Gbps actual throughputs, and is backward interoperable with MoCA 2.0 and MoCA 1.1

MoCA Home 2.5 Highlights

  • 2.5 Gbps Actual MAC Throughput
    Consistent, high-performance Gigabit Ethernet speeds throughout the home. Perfect for pristine HD and 4K streaming..
  • Less than 5ms Latency
    A reliable, low-latency wireless network that performs like Ethernet.
  • MoCA protected setup (MPS)
    Easy setup of new nodes with unique password sharing via push-button (similar to Wi-Fi® WPS).
  • Management proxy
    Management of nodes that don’t have upper layer management support by supporting management queries from one node on behalf of other nodes.
  • Enhanced privacy
    Secure data communications with a longer password using different keys between MoCA 2.1 nodes compared to MoCA 1.1/MoCA 2.0 nodes, along with the ability to control data forwarding of legacy nodes to and from MoCA 2.1 nodes.
  • Network-wide beacon power management
    Provides better control of peak signal power on the coax by configuring the beacon power of nodes to an absolute level (within tolerance of the hardware) and advertise that level to other nodes so that the same value is used after any handoff.
  • Bridge detection
    Ability to distinguish between nodes belonging to different networks and pass operator specified information between nodes before admission, as well as pass that same information to upper layers to prevent neighbors from forming a common network.
  • MoCASec™ Peer-to-Peer MoCA® Link Security
    MoCASec is a robust security layer that provides point-to-point link privacy enabling seamless integration of MoCA technology into home networks supporting the Wi-Fi Alliance’s EasyMesh™ standard. It provides the same security and privacy level maintained by Ethernet in wired and wireless links. Learn more about MoCASec.
  • Password Remote Provisioning for User Self-Install
    Allows zero configuration networking for new MoCA based device added to a MoCA network in privacy mode, by provisioning the MoCA network password over the coax medium prior to admission. Learn how.
