December 5, 2013

The Board of Directors of the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) has congratulated Entropic, a specialist in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, for its efforts in its completion of Golden Nodes for the MoCA 2.0 specification.

“Approval of Golden Node Certification demonstrates our firm belief that MoCA 2.0 is the best wired technology standard for home entertainment networking,” said Charles Cerino, president, MoCA. “We thank Entropic for their continued MoCA leadership and commitment as they bring MoCA 2.0 Golden Nodes to market.”

“MoCA 2.0 Golden Node certification demonstrates Entropic’s commitment to the success of MoCA and its rapid deployment,” said Matt Rhodes, senior vice president, Global Marketing, Entropic. “As the inventors of MoCA and as the first company to introduce a complete MoCA 2.0 solution, we are focused on driving the MoCA technology forward. Our MoCA 2.0 Golden Nodes are a critical component to the success of the technology and the Alliance.”

Availability of MoCA 2.0 Golden Nodes is of great interest and benefit to pay TV operators as it ensures interoperability among all MoCA 2.0 devices. This in turn allows manufacturers to rapidly design and deploy equipment for cable, satellite and telco/IPTV and OTT environments.
