MoCA Home provides the performance, low latency and security necessary for a reliable home network using the existing coaxial cabling while being the fastest, most reliable in-home backbone for Wi-Fi® and has been adopted by cable, telco/IPTV and satellite operators worldwide.

  • MoCA 2.5: actual throughput of 2.5 Gbps
  • MoCA 2.0: actual data rates of 1 Gbps
  • Latency is less than 5ms.
  • Works over existing in-building coaxial wiring.
  • Makes Wi-Fi® better.
  • Lowers total cost of network ownership.
  • MoCA technology has been adopted by pay TV and network operators worldwide.

There are 237 certified MoCA products, and our list continues to grow with MoCA 2.5.

“I ended up running another coax line to my TV room dedicated to MoCA, and it was worth it.  Viewing on-line TV using Ethernet over MoCA blows my 802.11ac connection out of the water – no more interminable waits for content to load. No more stutters or frame freezes.  MoCA seems to be a perfect complement, if not replacement in some cases, to Wi-Fi, and I can see why Verizon, Comcast and others use it for their installs.”

MoCA Home™ for Wi-Fi™

MoCA® Makes Wi-Fi™ Better. MoCA® gives the home network the WiFi boost it needs. MoCA technology delivers real world home networking speeds up to 2.5 Gbps. And because it’s a wired connection, you can count on a quality, low-lag experience for video streaming and online gaming.

Field Tests Demonstrate That Wi-Fi® Mesh in the Home Still Requires a Wire - Test Report

MoCA field tests that compared three different Wi-Fi mesh-based products in a home networking environment, vs. a Wi-Fi network that used MoCA as the backhaul. The results showed a dramatic improvement in Wi-Fi performance when using MoCA 2.0 as the backhaul, compared to a Wi-Fi-based backhaul only.

MoCA Home for Remote Management

How to: MoCA Network 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.
 

Remote Management of MoCA Interfaces using SNMP MIB

This memo defines an optional Multimedia over Coax Alliance Management Information Base and a recommended way of using the MIB with Simple Network Management Protocolto remotely configure, monitor, and diagnose a device which supports one or more MoCA interfaces.


MoCA Home for Security

MoCASec

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.
