MoCA Late Comers
MoCA finally succeeded in coaxing Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC) into joining the group this month, albeit at the lesser "Contributor" level. [Ed. note: TWC may have been officially coaxed this month, but we had the scoop back in May.] MSOs Comcast and Cox Communications Inc. , as well as suppliers Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT), Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) and Panasonic Corp. (NYSE: PC) are all high-flying MoCA "Promoters." So are archrivals Echostar and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ). (See TWC on Board With MoCA .)
Prior to bagging Time Warner Cable, MoCA also landed Pace Micro Technology and Arris Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRS) as members in June. (See Arris Sips on MoCA and MoCA Picks Up Pace.) It appears the coax club has finally reached cable industry critical mass. Better late than never.
