Teleste Adopts Entropic MoCA 2.0 Technology to Improve In-Home Wi-Fi

As consumers continue to purchase more connected devices, the home has to have a robust Wi-Fi system without any dead zones to ensure full-time connectivity. Whether it is playing a game or streaming a video on a mobile device, depending on the size of the house and the location, the connection can be sporadic. Teleste, provider of video and broadband technologies and services, has announced it is the first company in Europe to bring to market EoC (Ethernet over Coax) devices, based on Entropic’s latest MoCA 2.0 chipset design.

MoCA 2.0 delivers new performance modes with net or actual throughputs of 400 and 800 Mbps, giving operators and OEMs performance reliability for multi-room DVR, personal content sharing, OTT content sharing, IPTV and many different wireless applications. With a minimum of 400Mbps, operators providing HD and 4K video entertainment can use this technology without additional cable installations because the system can coexist with TV and broadband signals that are already in place. For individuals looking for higher speeds, the turbo bonded mode can deliver one single point-to-point link over coax of 1000Mbps.

The Teleste EoC Wi-Fi adapter uses the Entropic EN2800-series second-generation, single-chip MoCA 2.0 system platform with a compact, economical and lowest power solution while delivering strong performance. This includes maximum throughput with critical power management features and enhanced network dependability so service providers can meet Quality of Service (QoS) requirements.

The Teleste Ethernet over Coax Wi-Fi adapter uses a standard Ethernet router and the in-home coax network to connect a maximum of 16 devices. Users can access the network by typing the default address into a Web browser on the device of their choice and following the onscreen wizard.

Some of the features of the platform include:

  • Simple plug-and-play setup
  • Two new performance modes with industry leading MAC and PHY rates – “Turbo” mode for each
  • Two new low power modes – sleep and standby
  • Expanded operating frequency
  • Packet error rate (PER) improvements
  • Backward interoperability with 1.0 and 1.1 assured

“We believe the killer application for this new found speed and performance is rapidly shaping up to be high speed wireless extension throughout the customer’s property and garden. With so many Wi-Fi only devices now in consumers’ homes, operators are seeing that it is no longer good enough to just deliver high speed data to the front door, it has to go right through every part of the home and deliver that performance right into the customer’s hand, ” said Jason Dando, Ethernet over Coax product manager, Teleste.
