Entropic Announces Approved MoCA 2.0 Golden Nodes
SAN DIEGO -- Today at 1:00pm PT, the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA(R)) Board of Directors approved the first official MoCA 2.0 Golden Nodes. Upon conclusion of a unanimous vote by the MoCA Board, Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, is first to officially announce Board-approved MoCA 2.0 Golden Node certification. Upon this approval, Entropic's MoCA 2.0 Golden Nodes will be used by National Technical Systems (NTS), the MoCA authorized lab, to execute MoCA certification testing on all MoCA 2.0 devices.
Entropic was first to introduce a complete MoCA 2.0 solution to empower a new revolution in home networking by answering the growing demand for powerful connectivity within the home. As the recognized inventor of MoCA and a pioneer in the technology's development and deployment, Entropic has built on the success of its MoCA 1.1/1.0 products to make MoCA 2.0 the next key enabling technology to deliver a 'no excuses' whole-home network for high definition (HD) and Ultra HD video and streaming media services - all over existing coax in the home.
In order to ensure all MoCA 2.0-enabled home networking devices from global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and technology vendors meet the MoCA standard for quality and interoperability, a certification process is required. This process, established by MoCA, verifies compliance to the MoCA technology specification, which is accomplished primarily through interoperability testing with Golden Nodes. Golden Nodes are MoCA-compliant devices with specific capabilities to support the certification testing, and which go through laborious pre-testing at NTS. All devices that seek certification are tested against the Golden Nodes as part of the certification process.
