WASHINGTON, June 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (The Cable Show 2013 – Booth #2807) - Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home and Hitron Technologies Americas (Hitron), unveiled today a powerful collection of home networking solutions that promise to deliver an end-to-end high-speed networking backbone for whole-home data coverage. Hitron's CGNM, a DOCSIS 3.0-certified data gateway, HT-EM, a Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA ®)-to-Ethernet adapter and the HT-EMN, a MoCA-to-WiFi ® (802.11n 3x3 2.4GHz) extender use Entropic's MoCA 2.0 solution. The advanced data gateway and adapters pair the fastest broadband speeds with the highest performance MoCA home network required to meet multiple service operators' (MSO) data delivery needs. The new CGNM, HT-EM and HT-EMN will be on display at The Cable Show, which is being held June 10-12, 2013, in Washington D.C., and represents the industry's first MoCA 2.0 gateway-to-adapter demonstration from a single vendor. MSOs have evolved their in-home architectures and are now beginning to deliver all-IP services to a gateway in the home and then distribute those services over wired (MoCA) and wireless home networks. To best deliver these services, MSOs are deploying high-speed DOCSIS gateways, which in turn require a high-speed, highly-reliable MoCA backbone. Hitron's new CGNM DOCSIS 3.0-powered device is capable of 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) downstream speeds and incorporates Entropic's MoCA 2.0 silicon and software, which delivers 400+ Megabits per second (Mbps) of MAC throughput. The combination of Entropic's MoCA technology with Hitron's Adapters is poised to satisfy MSO's needs for all-IP video and broadband distribution around the home. "We are steadfast in our mission to lead the market in data gateways and home networking solutions. To accomplish these goals, we sought-out the highest performing and most mature MoCA technology in the market," said Todd Babic, chief sales and marketing officer, Hitron Technologies Americas. "Entropic's MoCA 2.0 system offers the industry's highest performing coax home networking product in the smallest form factor and was the ideal solution for our CGNM., HT-EM and HT-EMN."
"The market for MoCA 2.0 is now. Hitron's leading high-performance gateways deliver unprecedented bandwidth to the home and require a stable and established MoCA 2.0 backbone solution for whole-home content distribution," said Al Servati, vice president, Marketing, Connectivity Products at Entropic. "Our MoCA 2.0 solutions are market-ready, mature and complement Hitron's advanced gateway solutions to ensure MSOs can distribute all-IP content reliably and securely throughout the home."Hitron's advanced data gateway and TR-069 supported adapters leverage remote management and provide communication between the customer-premises equipment (CPE) within the home network. The CGNM, HT-EM and HT-EMN leverage Entropic's EN2710, which features:
- A complete solution with MAC, PHY, analog, RF transceiver and RF front-end functionality
- Net throughput (MAC) rates of 400+ Mbps over 16 nodes and 500+ Mbps for two-node Turbo mode
- Full backward interoperability with MoCA 1.1 and 1.0
- Low power modes with wake-on-MoCA to address energy conservation initiatives
- Improved reliability with packet error rates better than 1e-6 and a low latency of 3.5ms
