NDS has joined the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) as an associate member.
The company is involved in several projects that involve MoCA. It is responsible for the middleware and user experience in Liberty Global's planned Multimedia Home Gateway, which includes MoCA technology.
NDS is also a professional services and integration partner of MoCA and a board member of Cox Communications. NDS was the prime integrator for Cox Communications' next-generation HD EPG, which included the implementation of Cox's MoCA-based multi-room DVR solution as part of the service.
"A significant number of our service provider customers are looking at rolling out whole-home entertainment networking solutions, so now is the right time to join MoCA. The home network will likely be a blend of different wired and wireless networking technologies, and MoCA technology is a proven wired contender," said Jesper Knutsson, vice president and general manager of sales at NDS Americas.
