Moto, Tellabs Get MoCA

SAN RAMON, Calif. -- (NYSE: MOT, NASDAQ GS: TLAB) The Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA-TM) has recently certified Optical Network Terminal (ONT) triple-play fiber-to-the-home terminals from Motorola, Inc. and Tellabs.

These devices, the first ONTs to be certified by MoCA, convert optical signals, delivered over a passive optical network (PON) on fiber, into electrical signals that are sent to a homeowner's entertainment devices. MoCA technology, embedded in the ONT, enables triple-play content, including well over net 100Mbps of multiple HDTV and SDTV programs, high-speed data, gaming, voice and any other services over IP (internet protocol), through the existing in-home coaxial wiring. While the ONT is typically attached to the outside of a home or apartment, similar to a telephone box or wiring cabinet; it is a smart device that brings rich entertainment and networking services into the home.

The Motorola ONT1000M Single Family MoCA Optical Network Terminal provides a single point of delivery for voice, video and data services over a single fiber network. Using MoCA technology, the Motorola ONT1000M supports high-speed, bi-directional entertainment services delivered over IP, throughout a home, using the existing in-home coaxial cable and splitters. The Motorola ONT1000M also delivers over 130 non-IP based analog and digital video channels alongside the interactive video channels carried over the IP-based network created by MoCA technology.

"The Motorola ONT1000M substantially reduces installation time for our customers, and embedding MoCA technology was a key factor," said Tony Boucher, product manager, Motorola, Inc., Access Network Solutions. "As we strive to assist our customers in lowering overall FTTH deployment costs, implementing home networking technologies such as MoCA will be a key part of our strategy going forward."
