SAN DIEGO -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a leading provider of silicon solutions to enable connected home entertainment, announced today that Cox Communications, the third-largest cable television company in the United States, is adopting MoCA technology for high-performance delivery of HD video and other multimedia content into the connected home. Cox Communications plans to begin deploying new MoCA-certified set-top boxes with Entropic's award-winning c.LINK(r) MoCA chipsets embedded to deliver multi-room DVR to its subscriber base later this year.

MoCA - Powering Connected Home Entertainment

MoCA has been designed from the ground up to meet the requirements of service providers while addressing the digital entertainment appetite of consumers. A robust MoCA home network is capable of handling multiple streams of HD video simultaneously and offers throughput up to 175Mbps, parameterized quality of service (PQoS), 16 node support, and remote diagnostic capabilities.

Today's digital home requires the most reliable network available to connect the home and the family to digital content and broadband services. MoCA creates a whole home entertainment network enabling the sharing of HD video, IP-based content, personal movies, photos, music and even gaming over the existing coax found in millions of U.S. homes today.

"MoCA is an important enabling technology for our connected home entertainment strategy. With it, we can offer our subscribers new ways to enjoy Cox's video services including multi-room DVR and other connected entertainment services," said Steve Necessary, vice president of video strategy and product management for Cox Communications. "Our relationship with Entropic dates back several years and we are pleased to leverage their MoCA solutions as part of our connected entertainment strategy."
