Entropic achieves MoCA 1.1 band E golden node certification

USA: Entropic, a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced its Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) 1.1 silicon has received golden node certification by the MoCA Board of Directors for the Band E frequency, which is a mid-RF band used in DIRECTV homes.

Upon today's approval, Entropic's golden node can be leveraged by National Technical Systems (NTS), the MoCA authorized lab, to execute the MoCA certification testing on new MoCA 1.1 Band E devices.

Entropic's MoCA 1.1 Band E solution, embedded in Ethernet-to-Coax Adapters (ECAs), will be used to certify MoCA Band E-compliant devices in the frequency range of 475 -- 625 MHz. Entropic was a key contributor to MoCA's Specification Working Group and Certification Working Group to help define and test the advanced features of the MoCA 1.1 Band E solution, and is proud to drive the standard forward.

Entropic's MoCA 1.1 silicon has been golden node certified for Band D frequencies used by cable, telco/IPTV Pay-TV segments since 2008. With the launch of this new Band E certification, copies of Entropic's MoCA golden node can be released to MoCA members interested in serving all three Pay-TV segments, under the "MoCA Test Bed Participation Agreement."
