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.

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.
