Adoption of MoCA® 2.0 Drives Increase in Product Certifications

U.S. and International Service Providers Embrace High Performance and Reliability of Connectivity Standard

April 21, 2015—San Ramon, CA – The migration toward and adoption of MoCA® 2.0 continues to gather traction among operators worldwide. As further demonstrated, certified products incorporating MoCA 2.0 technology outnumber those integrating MoCA 1.1 by a factor of more than three to one. 

Of the 35 device certifications since the launch of the MoCA 2.0 certification program in Q1 2014, 28 have been for products integrating MoCA 2.0 and nine integrating MoCA 1.1.  

In the first quarter of 2015, all new certifications were for devices integrating MoCA 2.0.

Comcast and Verizon, for instance announced in 2014, gateways with MoCA 2.0. Evaluations and trials of MoCA 2.0 are ongoing among operators in Brazil, Singapore, Mexico, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa and China.

 “This has been a prolific year for certification of devices incorporating MoCA 2.0,” said Dr. Stephen Palm, Chair of the MoCA Certification Board and Senior Technical Director at Broadcom.  “MoCA® certification and the interoperability it represents are cornerstones for continued successful adoption of any connectivity technology standard, especially when used by service providers.”

“MoCA 2.0 certifications have surpassed our expectations just one year after the launch of the certification program,” said Charlie Cerino, president of MoCA. “The number of certified MoCA 2.0 devices is a clear trend on how quickly it is being adopted by the industry. The chart below is graphic evidence of this success. ”

About MoCA®

MoCA technology is the worldwide standard for high performance and high reliability in the connected home, and has been adopted by cable, telco/IPTV and satellite operators worldwide.  MoCA technology is also used to extend Wi-Fi® connectivity within the home.

MoCA 2.0 offers two performance modes of 400 and 800 Mbps (bonded) net throughputs, (1 Gbps for point to point mode), one in 100 million packet error rate (PER) with 3.6 ms latency, improved power savings and backward interoperability with MoCA 1.1. Products with MoCA 1.1 offer 175 Mbps actual data rates.

Preliminary results of MoCA 2.0 field tests in the U.S. validated 400 Mbps in 90 percent of all outlets. The Alliance is looking to conduct the same tests among operators worldwide.

The Alliance has 180 certified products since its inception.
