Broadcom Announces MoCA 2.0 Golden Node Certification

Establishes Leadership in Next-Generation MoCA Technology

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 3, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —

News Highlights:

  • Broadcom® BCM97428GN reference design receives Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA®) 2.0 Golden Node (GN) Certification
  • Allows manufacturers to rapidly design and deploy next generation performance in cable, satellite, xDSL, xPON and IP set-top box products
  • Broadcom's portfolio of HD STB and IP gateway solutions includes twenty-one MoCA 2.0-enabled SoCs

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced MoCA 2.0 Golden Node (GN) Certification for the BCM97428GN reference design, based on the BCM7428, an IP high definition (HD) set-top box (STB) platform. A MoCA 2.0 Golden Node is the reference unit to which all MoCA 2.0 products are tested and certified by the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA). The MoCA 2.0 standard is the next generation in home connectivity for multi-media over coax, which effectively doubles achievable data rates and facilitates additional high-definition streams throughout the home.1 Visit to learn more.

"Broadcom's Golden Node certification is both a demonstration of its continued leadership in MoCA technology and a commitment to next-generation benefits and features," said MoCA President Charles Cerino. "This is a key step toward certification of MoCA 2.0 products."

By integrating MoCA 2.0 directly into its set-top box system-on-a chip (SoC) offerings, Broadcom's comprehensive portfolio of twenty-one HD STB and IP gateway solutions realize the home entertainment network benefits of the standard, including double the video bandwidth, increased security and lower power. Broadcom Golden Nodes for MoCA 1.1 Band D, and MoCA 1.1 Band E are part of the official MoCA test beds and the BCM97428GN is now a Golden Node in the newly developed test bed for MoCA 2.0.

MoCA 2.0 also supports an improved packet error rate, enabling higher quality of service (QoS) levels for operators and the effective utilization of higher numbers of tuner/demodulators integrated into next generation STB and gateway devices. MoCA 2.0 provides complete interoperability with MoCA 1.0 and 1.1 while also providing full performance with MoCA 2.0 nodes.

"MoCA 2.0 Golden Node certification demonstrates Broadcom's leadership in next-generation MoCA technology and enables a fast path for product certification for all Broadcom MoCA 2.0-enabled devices," said John Gleiter, Broadcom Vice President of Set-Top Box Marketing. "Broadcom's current portfolio of twenty-one MoCA 2.0 enabled devices will allow manufacturers to rapidly design and deploy next generation performance and feature-optimized products for the next generation entertainment networks in the connected home."

All of Broadcom's MoCA 2.0-enabled devices are available: BCM3322, BCM3325, BCM3332, BCM3335, BCM3385, BCM4562, BCM6802, BCM6803, BCM7145, BCM7364, BCM7366, BCM7399, BCM7422, BCM7425, BCM7428, BCM7429, BCM7430, BCM7435, BCM7438, BCM7439, and BCM7445. Golden Node units are available for purchase by all MoCA members.
