U.S. cable TV providers are expected to roll out multi-room DVR packages later this year based on the MoCA home networking technology. The services let TVs in various rooms link to a single DVR. To date Verizon has led the charge for MoCA, deploying MoCA as part of its FiOS broadband service. Time Warner, Cox, Brighthouse and Comcast, are likely to drive opportunities for MoCA in 2010 with the market moving from two million units per quarter towards up to 8 to 10 million units per quarter by the end of 2011, according to a report from Barclays Capital. MoCA’s next generation technology, MoCA 2.0 will be the next generation of MoCA. It will support two modes, one with throughput up to 400 Mbits/s and another with useable throughput up to 800 Mbits/s and is backward compatible with the current version 1.1.

As if there was any doubt that connected CE devices would take off, someone actually put a number on it. Parks Associates defines the category, which allows users to access and display photos and music on home networks and retrieve online contents like games and videos, includes networked TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, home media servers and set-top boxes. And just how does everyone intend to connect these devices to broadband? A wired home network makes more and more sense for both the number of connected CE products that will be in the home as well as the performance expected by consumers. And if you don’t already have CAT-5/6 installed, a MoCA home network will be the next best thing.
