LAS VEGAS -- Entropic (ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced today its MoCA(R) (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) 2.0 silicon and software solution has been selected by ARRIS Group, Inc. (ARRS) for use in the ARRIS MG2402 Video Gateway that uses XG5 and Reference Design Kit (RDK) specifications developed by Comcast. The cable industry in North America is transitioning from a traditional set-top box/digital video recorder set-up (STB/DVR) to a Gateway/IP-client network architecture. Recognizing this macro dynamic early, Entropic designed its MoCA 2.0 solution offering the highest MAC throughput and most reliable whole-home connectivity backbone from the gateway to all client devices in the home. With backward interoperability to MoCA 1.0 and 1.1 devices, the MoCA 2.0 solution enables the advanced gateway to stream video and other digital entertainment from the gateway to each IP-client device. "This is the first official product announcement of MoCA 2.0 designed into a headless gateway," said Al Servati, vice president of Marketing, Connectivity Group, Entropic. "Our MoCA 2.0 solution was selected for its maturity, stability and ability to enable ARRIS to deliver IP services from the home gateway to lower cost IP-Client set-top boxes -- all over wired (MoCA) and wireless home networks." Entropic Communications Inc.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
