GiaX, a startup based in Erlangen, Germany that is developing products for network access using coaxial cabling, has joined MoCA at the Associate membership level. GiaX joined the Alliance as they intend to integrate MoCA Access into their 10G Ethernet HFC overlay product portfolio targeting cable MSOs.
Recently the company announced availability of their ES1440-BK and the HelEOS Switch Node. The ES1440-BK is a 4-port 10G and 4-port 2.5G Ethernet switch. The HelEOS Switch Node consists of the HelEOS gateway with an integrated ES1440-BK switch. The Switch Node provides cable operators with the capability to deploy HelEOS as a virtual node split solution.
“Operators are developing the next generation of their networks that will use technologies such as DAA (Distributed Access Architectures) and FDX (Full Duplex DOCSIS(TM)), resulting in the need to reduce service group sizes. The combination of our HelEOS solution and the MoCA Access standard provides a powerful and complementary tool for MSOs. The MoCA Access standard provides the performance and low latency required by operators as they continuously enhance their networks,” said Jörg Hellwig, CEO and founder of GiaX.
“Our technology and the ongoing policy of the Alliance has always been to work with startups to foster innovation and creative products using MoCA technology standards. We are excited to have GiaX join the alliance and look forward to the innovation they will bring to the Access effort,” said Charles Cerino, MoCA President.
