SAN RAMON, Calif. -- The HomePNA® Alliance today announced Fast EoC®, a new industry specification aimed to deliver performance up to 320 Megabits per second (Mbps) in regular mode, and up to 640 Megabits per second (Mbps) and more than 300 Mbps user data throughput to Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) environments in a new “enhanced” mode. HomePNA’s Fast EoC targets broadband access in MDU and Hospitality markets.

“Fast EoC -- the new HomePNA Broadband Access standard changes the game by delivering reliable and affordable broadband over existing coax lines," said Michael Weissman, president of HomePNA. “Now, MSOs can leverage their existing cabling infrastructure to provide digital services to living units for 10% of the capital needed to deploy alternatives such as DOCSIS."
