MoCA 2.0 device certification reaches 28

April 22, 2015

The migration toward, and adoption of, MoCA 2.0 continues to gather traction among operators worldwide. Certified products incorporating MoCA 2.0 technology now outnumber those integrating MoCA 1.1 by a factor of more than three to one.

Of the 35 device certifications since the launch of the MoCA 2.0 certification programme in Q1 2014, 28 have been for products integrating MoCA 2.0 and nine integrating MoCA 1.1.

In the first quarter of 2015, all new certifications were for devices integrating MoCA 2.0.

Comcast and Verizon announced gateways with MoCA 2.0 in 2014. Evaluations and trials of MoCA 2.0 are ongoing among operators in Brazil, Singapore, Mexico, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa and China.

“This has been a prolific year for certification of devices incorporating MoCA 2.0,” said Dr. Stephen Palm, Chair of the MoCA Certification Board and Senior Technical Director at Broadcom.  “MoCA certification and the interoperability it represents are cornerstones for continued successful adoption of any connectivity technology standard, especially when used by service providers.”

“MoCA 2.0 certifications have surpassed our expectations just one year after the launch of the certification programme,” said Charlie Cerino, president of MoCA. “The number of certified MoCA 2.0 devices is a clear trend on how quickly it is being adopted by the industry. The chart below is graphic evidence of this success. ”
