At Cable-Tec Expo, PCT International will introduce a full line of subscriber amplifiers that are designed to optimize use of the Multimedia over Coax (MoCA) standard for in-home networking. PCT will show how its drop amplifiers with MoCA filters effectively isolate home networking frequencies above 1 GHz from legacy cable telecommunications frequencies, minimizing signal loss.?

“MoCA allows MSOs to provide advanced services such as multi-room DVRs and faster connectivity to take advantage of higher bandwidth with DOCSIS 3.0,” said Jon Wang, VP, RF engineering for PCT, in a statement. “While the MoCA standards themselves have become pivotal in most discussions related to home networking, the role of the drop network architecture is crucial to the end result.”?

Available with or without integrated modem ports, PCT’s drop amplifiers with MoCA filters use low pass filters to confine the 1125-1525 MHz MoCA signals to the home network, and to ensure the low port-to-port isolation that minimizes loss of MoCA networking signals. The amplifiers also are designed to use forward path equalization to account for the loss of cable signal quality in the drop.
