14, 2017—San Ramon, CA Leveraging its inherent strengths in high
performance and high reliability, the Multimedia over Coax Alliance is
introducing MoCA Access; a new broadband access specification based on the MoCA
2.5 standard which is capable of 2.5 Gbps actual data rates and leverages the
existing in-building coaxial cabling.
MoCA Access is point-to-multipoint serving up to 63 modems (clients). It is
designed to co-exist with legacy services such as TV, DOCSIS, and cellular
(4G/5G) technologies. The operating frequency range is 400MHz - 1675MHz.
Latency is less than 5ms. Throughput is up to 2.5 Gbps downstream and 2 Gbps
As a fiber extension technology, MoCA Access is well suited for operators and
ISPs that are installing fiber-to-the-basement (FTTB) or fiber 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
MoCA Access supports standard traffic shaping and QoS 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.
The MoCA Access
specification is available
to members now.
