Entropic Communications and NETGEAR today announced what they say is the "industrys first" home networking MoCA-certified, Ethernet-to-coax bridge kit.
MoCA chipset manufacturer Entropic today announced that D-Link will have a retail product by the end of Q1.
The D-Link DXN-220 MoCA MediaBridge is an Ethernet to coax MoCA-compliant bridge using Entropic's EN2210 chipset. The announcement didn't quote any bandwidth numbers, but MoCA 1.1 has a PHY (raw) data rate of 270 Mbps. So expect a maximum application (useful) data rate of around half that.
No pricing was announced.
