Coax Home Network MoCA 2.0 Now Offers up to 1 Gbps Net Data Throughput
Low home network bandwidth and poor reliability can restrict the ability of TV broadcasters to provide services to consumers be a source of trouble calls. Fred Taylor from Broadcom and Roberta Silverstien with MoCA explained to me that the evolution of MoCA into MoCA 2.0 has increased the data transmission rates up to 1 Gbps. The MoCA system is easy to setup (self configuring) and the high data transmission rate that removes the bottlenecks in the home and provide very fast network access times (important for networked gaming users). The MoCA 2.0 system has two modes of operation; basic which provides 400 Mbps and enhanced which provides 800 Mbps. For point to point applications, nodes can combine the basic and enhanced modes providing up to 1 Gbps net data transmission rates.
