                          of DVR and HDTV
              Video Networking Requirements

• High Performance with wide outlet coverage
  • > 100Mbps net throughput at >97% of outlets
• Inherent low BER/PER
  • Cannot rely on retransmissions
• Low Latency independent of network load
  • No time to retransmit video frames
• Coexist with Cable, DBS, Terrestrial, Telco
• Spectrum support for future performance increases
            Installation Objectives

• Easy installation in the home
• Low sensitivity to home coax topology
  • Be able to seamlessly support any type of Coax
• Any network node can be connected to any
  outlet in the house
• Minimize need to replace splitters or add
  new wires
The MoCA Connected Home
                     The Organization

•   Established in January 2004 by some of the most respected service
    providers and OEMs in the world.
•   Promote the distribution of multiple streams of HD content throughout the
    home using already existent coax.
•   Only alliance with appeal to all three pay TV segments (telco, cable, DBS).
•   Full deployment (Verizon’s FiOS TV) with more than 2.7 million subs.
•   DIRECTV, Comcast, TWC, Cox and Bright House Networks publicly
    committed to using MoCA in their networks. More than a dozen other
    operators in trials.
•   More than 60 certified products (STBs, ONTs, BHRs, ECBs)
•   Recently established liaison agreement with HomePlug.
•   Incorporated into DLNA’s Interoperability Guidelines
•   Member of OPASTCO (U.S. tier 2 telcos and cableco) and CEDIA
    (installers and integrators).
                  MoCA 1.0/1.1

• No new wires or interference with other technologies and mediums.
• Complementary to wireless—extends wireless backbone in home.
• Operates with other services on the same coax
• Field tests in 250 homes validated net throughputs of more than
  100 Mb/s in 97 percent of outlets.
• Only Alliance to conduct and publish field tests.
• MoCA 1.1 capable of 175 Mbps net throughputs, PQoS bandwidth
  management and 16 node network extension
                    MoCA Technology Features

•   PHY is Bitloaded OFDM – optimizes PHY rate for any channel
    • Pre-equalization allows simple Reed Solomon FEC
• Fully coordinated and synchronized network
    • Transmission slots are assigned by a Network Controller (NC) per Request-
      Grant mechanism
    • NC is automatically selected
    • Preferred NC can be selected by higher layer applications (MoCA v1.1)
• Probing mechanism allows performance optimization per connection
• Quality of Service (QoS)
    • Prioritized QoS – differentiated service for video, voice and gaming
    • Parameterized QoS – bandwidth reservation per flows (MoCA v1.1)
• Management interface with detailed characteristics
                            Wired Technologies shakeout
•   Gigabit Ethernet
     •   If you have CAT5 infrastructure, Gigabit Ethernet is the best
•   MoCA
     •   Coax is the cleanest medium
     •   Multiple Channels
     •   Support of many service providers
     •   Integrated solutions
•   PowerLine
     •   Low data rates
     •   Single Channel, Remediation is difficult
     •   Fragmented into many incompatible organizations / specifications
           •   HomePlug (US) (Intellon)
                  • HomePlug 1.0 / Turbo
                  • HomePlug AV
           •   CE-Powerline Communication Alliance = CEPCA (Japan) (Panasonic)
           •   Open PLC European Research Alliance = OPERA (Europe) (DS2)
           •   IEEE P1901
           •   ITU-T G.hn / HomeGrid Forum
•   HomePNA
     •   Single Channel
     •   Reduced to single small supplier
     •   Requires Coax to be viable, but not designed/tuned for coax
     •   Conflicts with DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS
                MoCA 2.0 in Development

• Two performance modes:
   • 400 and 800 Mb/s actual throughputs
   • 700 and 1.4 Gb/s PHY rates
• Two low power modes:
   • Sleep and standby
   • Address power consumption in entire network
• Backward compatible with previous versions without
  degradation in performance.
   • Protects investment in current equipment. No firmware or swap out
• MoCA 1.0/1.1 meet needs of operators now. MoCA 2.0
  meets needs of operators tomorrow.
                          Verizon: Video will be
                          our core product
•   From Advanced Television, September 21, 2009:

•   Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg says video, not voice, will be the core product over his expanding
    fibre network. He said he no longer worried about looking for the "inflection point" in the loss of
    access lines.

    "I don't care about that any more, I am going to focus on driving FiOS penetration and taking
    costs out," he said, adding that he felt "liberated".

    He expected the FiOS network would stretch to 70 per cent of Verizon’s fixed-line customer

    He said that with TV, the PC and the Internet converging, the carrier’s future would be in selling
    video services, such as interactive TV, bundled with wireless voice.

    "So what I need to do is get ourselves focused around the following idea, that video is going to
    be the core product in the fixed line business. We are going to bundle it with wireless, we are
    going to integrate software over all the screens.“
