Entropic, ADB bow industry’s first MoCA 1.1-certified STB
Entropic Communications and Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB) are laying claim to having the cable industry’s first MoCA 1.1-certified set-top box.
ADB’s 6882CDMX set-top was designed specifically for MSOs to offer new home networking options to their subscribers. The box is powered by Entropic’s EN2210/EN1010 MoCA-compliant chipset, which enables a complete coaxial network platform for the distribution of multiple streams of HD video, broadband data and other digital content throughout the home.
"This is a significant milestone for the MoCA standard worldwide, and we congratulate Entropic and ADB for developing the industry’s first set-top box to receive MoCA 1.1 certification," said Rob Gelphman, chair of the Marketing Work Group at the Multimedia over Coax Alliance.
Features for the MoCA 1.1 box include:
- Higher network throughput over MoCA 1.0, up to 175 Mbps of application layer throughput
- Increased network size of up to 16 MoCA devices
- Built-in network management support for gathering data rate statistics
- Service operator-class robustness and reliability, with support for Parameterized Quality of Service (PQoS)-protected delivery of premium content across the home network
