Entropic's MoCA 2.0 Utilized By ARRIS In New Advanced Headless Video Gateway

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (The Consumer Electronics Show) — Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced today its MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) 2.0 silicon and software solution has been selected by ARRIS Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:ARRS) for use in the ARRIS MG2402 Video Gateway that uses XG5 and Reference Design Kit (RDK) specifications developed by Comcast.

The cable industry in North America is transitioning from a traditional set-top box/digital video recorder set-up (STB/DVR) to a Gateway/IP-client network architecture. Recognizing this macro dynamic early, Entropic designed its MoCA 2.0 solution offering the highest MAC throughput and most reliable whole-home connectivity backbone from the gateway to all client devices in the home. With backward interoperability to MoCA 1.0 and 1.1 devices, the MoCA 2.0 solution enables the advanced gateway to stream video and other digital entertainment from the gateway to each IP-client device.

"This is the first official product announcement of MoCA 2.0 designed into a headless gateway," said Al Servati, vice president of Marketing, Connectivity Group, Entropic. "Our MoCA 2.0 solution was selected for its maturity, stability and ability to enable ARRIS to deliver IP services from the home gateway to lower cost IP-Client set-top boxes – all over wired (MoCA) and wireless home networks."

Entropic's MoCA 2.0 chipset answers the growing demand for powerful connectivity within the home. Transforming the coaxial infrastructure into a highly-efficient, reliable whole-home entertainment network, MoCA 2.0 provides the greatest throughput, enhanced reliability, necessary power management and security features, and backwards interoperability to prior MoCA standards; making it the key enabling technology to deliver a 'no excuses' whole-home network for HD video and streaming media services.

"ARRIS is focused on maintaining a leadership position in this gateway/client transformation by providing the most advanced, intuitive video gateway solutions in the industry," said Derek Elder, senior vice president and general manager of the ARRIS CPE Business Unit. "Entropic's MoCA 2.0 solution complements our gateway strategy by providing a highly reliable, maximum throughput home networking backbone."
