Paper Abstract

The Multimedia-over-Coax Alliance (MoCA) standard is rapidly emerging as the de-facto standard in North America for multimedia home networking. This is driven by the desire to have digital content from various sources such as DVRs, audio devices and PCs reliably available anywhere in the home using the in-home existing coaxial cable wiring. The MoCA technology coexists with other services at the home such as cable TV, cable modem, and satellite services. This technology achieves MAC throughputs exceeding 100 Mb/s in 97% of all outlets in the home with no changes to the home coax infrastructure, and with packet error rates less than 10-5, and with an average latency of less than 3.5 milliseconds based on extensive field trial results.
