Entropic Communications is collaborating with SMC Networks and Intel to accelerate the development of a new class of Multimedia over Coax (MoCA) 2.0-enabled DOCSIS 3.0 gateways for service providers. The cooperation leverages the power of Intel’s Puma 5 family of DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, SMC’s expertise in producing advanced DOCSIS data gateways and Entropic’s complete MoCA 2.0 silicon and software solution.

Building upon the success of MoCA 1.1, MoCA 2.0 provides a leap in bandwidth, delivering more than 400 Mbps of application throughput, thereby enabling next generation connected home entertainment services. For the majority of North American service providers that are already using MoCA 1.1, MoCA 2.0 is fully backwards interoperable with prior MoCA standards.

In the first public unveiling of its MoCA 2.0 silicon with DOCSIS gateways, Entropic will be demonstrating the MoCA 2.0-enabled DOCSIS 3.0 gateway with SMC and Intel at CableLabs Summer 2011, held August 8-9, in Keystone, Colorado.
