KEYSTONE, Colo. -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTR), a leading provider of silicon and software solutions to enable connected home entertainment is joining forces with the Intel Digital Home Group at the CableLabs® Summer Conference 2009 in Keystone, Colo., to showcase the world’s first demonstration of the newly ratified Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Quality of Service (QoS) 3.0 specification over MoCA® on a set-top box (STB) platform. The demonstration utilizes Entropic’s EN2510 single-chip, coaxial network controller and RF transceiver, which is based on the MoCA 1.1 standard and the Intel Media Processor CE 3100 system-on-a-chip (SoC) based on the company's popular Intel® architecture.

UPnP is an international standard for device interoperability on IP networks. UPnP QoS 3.0 is a new specification that defines a framework for policy-based parameterized Quality of Service (QoS), essentially bridging the gap between service provider and broadband network solutions to provide end-to-end management of user devices within the home.

“As the industry moves toward converged services allowing for the sharing of personal and premium content on the same network, the need for a reservation-based quality of service manager becomes a critical component to guaranteeing content delivery,” said Dr. Anton Monk, vice president technology, Entropic Communications. “By leveraging the synergies of Entropic’s EN2510 and the Intel Media Processor CE 3100, we are demonstrating UPnP QoS 3.0 over MoCA and how it can ultimately deliver on the need for a competitive solution that guarantees bandwidth.”

“Entropic and Intel share a common vision and mutual interest for the global expansion of ubiquitous connected home entertainment,” said Bob Ferreria, general manager, Cable Segment, Digital Home Group, Intel Corporation. “By working together, we are demonstrating how MSOs can enable future convergence of high-bandwidth, personal content applications without compromising the delivery of premium service offerings.”
