KEYSTONE, Colo. -- Entropic Communications, Inc. a leading provider of silicon and software solutions to enable connected home entertainment, along with SMC Networks and Intel, today announced their technology collaboration to accelerate the development of a new class of industry-first MoCA(R) (Multimedia over Coax) 2.0-enabled DOCSIS(R) 3.0 gateways for service providers.

As service providers look to deliver faster broadband speeds to enable future services and applications, the need to distribute this bandwidth around the home becomes increasingly more important. The cooperation between Entropic, SMC and Intel leverages the power of Intel's Puma(TM) 5 family of DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, SMC's expertise in producing advanced DOCSIS data gateways and Entropic's complete MoCA 2.0 silicon and software solution to enable an unprecedented level of performance that can be delivered over coax cables for next-generation home entertainment services. By combining the unparalleled performance of MoCA 2.0 with Intel's DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway Linux-based System-on-a-Chip (SoC) and SMC's market leading DOCSIS 3.0 gateway, service providers can deploy a future-proof, cost-effective, robust, highly-reliable solution that delivers high-quality, advanced services and new applications throughout the home--without the worry of bandwidth constraints.
