Not really for DOCSIS, it's for PON
MOCA 2.5 technology has great promise used in conjunction with PON, not so much DOCSIS.

If a building already has home-run coax installed to each unit, firing up a multi-unit ONT in the utility room and using MOCA for the drop to the unit is far less expensive than rewiring the building with fiber to each unit.

With DOCSIS, service is already connected to each unit via coax.  Upgrading each unit to DOCSIS 3.1 is probably less expensive than using MOCA behind a shared DOCSIS terminal. Speeds would be limited to whatever that terminal could support, so a 3.1 (or even Full Duplex DOCSIS) upgrade at the headend may be required anyway.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
