Broadcom Announces First Gigabit MoCA 2.0 Single Chip Solution

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- - 2013 CES International - Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced a single-chip one Gigabit MoCA 2.0 solution, enabling operators to deliver advanced MoCA 2.0 functionality into the full spectrum of broadband devices. Designed for applications such as cable, DSL or gigabit passive optical network (GPON) modems, routers, bridges or access points, the Broadcom BCM6802 MoCA 2.0 system-on-a-chip (SoC) delivers up to gigabit speeds of home network bandwidth for enhanced whole-home video quality and distribution. Learn how Broadcom® innovation is enabling the Connected Life at home, at work, and on-the-go at Broadcom@CES.

"Broadcom is leading the design and acceleration of deployments of MoCA 2.0 products and technology to create whole-home connected TV experiences," said Dan Marotta, Broadcom Executive Vice President and General Manager, Broadband Communications Group. "This standalone solution is the next step in broadly transitioning operators from earlier generations of the standard to today's more sophisticated home networking requirements, enabling high-quality broadcast content delivery to TVs, tablets, laptops and smartphones - anywhere in the home." MoCA 2.0 is the most current evolution of the MoCA standard with the ability to bond two channels together for a richer home networking experience, enabling operators to integrate more advanced features such as higher throughput, more channels and more user endpoints. In addition to increased throughput, MoCA 2.0 implementations benefit from the standard's advanced power management and support for higher levels of security for enhanced content protection. MoCA 2.0 is supported by top operators across North America including Charter, Cogeco, Comcast, Cox Communications, DIRECTV, DISH Network, Rogers Communications Inc., Time Warner Cable and Verizon's FiOS services.

Key Features: -- Channel bonding to support 800Mbps over 16 nodes and up to 1Gbps for channel bonded turbo mode.

-- Advanced network power management and power savings modes.

-- Standalone and companion SoC modes of operation.

-- Integrated memory for low bill of material (BOM) cost.

-- Driver support for cable, DSL and access point platforms.

Availability The Broadcom BCM6802 MoCA 2.0 SoC is now sampling and will be demonstrated at Broadcom's Booth at 2013 CES International.
