What’s claimed to be the world’s first MoCA Access 2.5 solution – with 2.5Gbps point-to-multipoint network speed and other key features – is being demoed at IBC2018 in the MaxLinear room in hall 15.

The Swedish company InCoax’s In:xtnd solution uses the latest generation of MaxLinear’s MxL3710 MoCA 2.5 networking ICs to build a multi-gigabit MDU access solution that offers network throughput equal to fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) utilising existing coaxial in-building cabling infrastructure. The ability to utilise coax networks delivers a significantly lower total cost of ownership.

The InCoax In:xtnd access solution offers 2.5Gbps speed over coaxial cable and powerful multipoint networking capability to manage up to 124 customer premise equipment (CPE) modems with one head-end unit. This combination makes the solution appealing to both telecom and cable service providers. Service provider network management features – including DBA, VLAN, QoS, TR-069, and layer 2 security – are fully supported by the management software.

Peter Carlsson, CEO of InCoax Networks, said: “We are very excited to partner with MaxLinear on the industry’s first MoCA Access 2.5 solution. The highly integrated MxL3710 chipset and software suite enables us to deliver the most advanced coaxial gigabit access products to the market.”

Will Torgerson, vice president and general manager of MaxLinear’s Broadband Group, commented: “MoCA Access 2.5 is picking up significant market momentum as consumers demand faster access speeds and carriers see the extreme value provided by the ability to use coax cable for these connections. InCoax has engineered an impressive MoCA Access 2.5 solution including a full suite of differentiated management and diagnostic features that that will address a real need for faster access speeds and simplified deployment and management tools.”
