Entropic Communications said it’s providing golden nodes to National Technical Systems (NTS) for certification of MoCA’s newest specification.

Entropic's EN2210/EN1010 silicon received golden node certification by the board of directors of MoCA earlier this month and will be used for certification on MoCA 1.1.

Golden nodes are a superset of MoCA 1.1 nodes and will be used to certify the next generation of MoCA-compliant devices. Entropic said it was actively engaged with MoCA's Certification Working Group to help define the advanced features of MoCA 1.1, and that it is proud to further the development of the standard.

MoCA 1.1 was defined to address the evolving needs of operators for more bandwidth, more device support and guaranteed quality of service (QoS).

MoCA golden nodes will be released to MoCA members under a licensing agreement with Entropic for product certification testing at NTS.
