New MoCA® standard MoCA Link™
Point-to-point coax connectivity bridge for broadband services
Launching in late 2021, MoCA Link™, for broadband services including 5G, satellite and fiber PON, gives providers an access path into a home using pre-installed coax
September 7, 2021, San Ramon, Calif. – Simultaneous working, learning, streaming, and gaming is pushing broadband service providers to offer faster networking delivery to the home and inside the home. To enhance delivery inside a home, particularly Wi-Fi coverage, broadband service providers want to put the gateway or Wi-Fi router in the center of a home. The challenge for service providers to bring the network into the center of a home without the high cost and the disruption of installing new wiring can be significant.
A new standard, set to launch later this year by MoCA®, Multimedia over Coax Alliance, called MoCA Link™, offers a possible solution.
MoCA Link™ 2.5 is ultra-low latency, high-speed point-to-point connectivity bridge that simplifies installation from external receiver or access network termination point to the internal home gateway or Wi-Fi router. MoCA Link™ 2.5 uses pre-installed coax to connect the outside network edge and the access path into a home.
“MoCA Link™ 2.5 delivers the ultra-fast speed, high bandwidth and low latency that customers want with the ease of installation that service providers need, ” said MoCA President Dr. Jim Crammond. “The Alliance’s inherent expertise in new applications for pre-installed coax cabling lets broadband service providers link receivers on the outside of a home to a gateway inside the home simply, efficiently, and cost-effectively.”
With its sub-millisecond latency and 2.5 Gbps of high bandwidth and reverse power feed enabling capabilities, MoCA Link™ is the install solution for broadband service providers requiring easy access from outside to inside a home.
Initial Applications for MoCA Link™ 2.5:
• Connecting 5G receivers on the outside of the home to the Wi-Fi router inside the home,
• Connecting satellite receivers on the roof of the home to the Wi-Fi router inside the home,
• Connecting the PON ONU at the edge of the home to the Wi-Fi router inside the home.
MoCA Link™ 2.5 technology to include:
• 2.5 Gbps Multi-Gigabit speeds;
• Ultra-low latency of less than one (1) millisecond;
• Reverse power feed capabilities;
• Standard traffic shaping support and Quality of Service.
