SAN RAMON, Calif. -- 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 upstream.

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 with coax.

“MoCA Access leverages our core strengths in high-performance, reliability and no new wires,” said Charles Cerino, MoCA President. “Service providers around the world can take advantage of a proven high-speed technology that is designed for all future installations. And the low latency makes it the perfect complement to a wired backhaul architecture for upcoming cellular technologies such as 5G.”

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.

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.
