CableLabs has become a Contributor member of the MoCA Alliance.
The two organizations have been working together for years as part of a technical liaison relationship. Membership in the organization enables CableLabs to provide more input and direction early in the spec development process for greater synergy between the two organizations, however.
“We have always worked well with MoCA and our membership further establishes and strengthens the relationship,” said Ralph Brown, chief technology officer of CableLabs. “We look forward to continuing our joint efforts in support of cable operators and the broader cable ecosystem.”
“We are pleased that CableLabs has joined MoCA. The cooperation between our two organizations is critical to keeping the cable market strong – in the U.S. and worldwide--through innovation, certification of products and specifications that are mutually beneficial to the operators and consumers,” said Charles Cerino, MoCA President.
MoCA 2.0 is available now and is the first specification developed by the entire Alliance. It offers two performance modes of 400 Mbps and 800 Mbps actual throughputs, packet error rates (PER) as low as one in 100 million with a nominal latency of 3.6ms, and standby and sleep modes for help in overall power management in the network.
The Alliance has 148 certified products and 51 members worldwide.
