MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, today announced InCoax Networks AB, Sweden, has developed the world’s first multi-gigabit coaxial-based access solution using its MxL3710 MoCA Access™ 2.5 networking IC.
InCoax is a worldwide provider of premium access solutions to broadband operators, hospitality and healthcare providers.
MaxLinear’s latest generation MxL3710 MoCA 2.5 networking ICs are used by InCoax to build a multi-gigabit MDU access solution that offers network throughput equal to fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) utilizing existing coaxial in-building cabling infrastructure. The ability to utilize coax networks delivers a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
The InCoax In:xtnd™ access solution offers 2.5Gbps speed over coaxial cable and powerful multipoint networking capability to manage up to 124 customer premise equipment (CPE) modems with one head-end unit. This combination makes the solution appealing to both telecom and cable service providers. Service provider network management features including DBA, VLAN, QoS, TR-069, and layer-2 security are fully supported by the management software.
“We are very excited to partner with MaxLinear on the industry’s first MoCA Access 2.5 solution. The highly integrated MxL3710 chipset and software suite enables us to deliver the most advanced coaxial gigabit access products to the market,” said Peter Carlsson, CEO of InCoax Networks.
“MoCA Access 2.5 is picking up significant market momentum as consumers demand faster access speeds and carriers see the extreme value provided by the ability to use coax cable for these connections,” said Will Torgerson, Vice President & General Manager of MaxLinear’s Broadband Group. “InCoax has engineered an impressive MoCA Access™ 2.5 solution including a full suite of differentiated management and diagnostic features that that will address a real need for faster access speeds and simplified deployment and management tools.”
Both the parts in the MxL371x family utilize MaxLinear’s patented Full-Spectrum Capture™ (FSC™) technology that can simultaneously digitize up to 1.4GHz of spectrum, eliminating all the discrete components usually required for frequency conversion.
Each IC instantaneously captures the entire frequency range between 400 MHz to 1700 MHz and features a fully digital channel selection and signal processing chain as well as MoCA network processor and three-port, layer-2 switch between its interfaces. The MxL371x family of products also supports a MaxLinear proprietary channel aggregation mode, allowing for the capture and processing of several non-contiguous 100MHz blocks within the entire operating frequency range for a total of a combined 500MHz.
Parts in the MxL371x product family exceed strict performance requirements defined by the MoCA 2.5 standard. Having this additional performance margin enables customers to significantly reduce the overall implementation cost and provide more reliable service over a larger area of installations.
In addition to market leading hardware performance, MaxLinear also provides a suite of diagnostic software functions that provide detailed visibility into radio frequency (RF) and networking specific parameters. Most notable is the spectrum analyzer feature that enables unique installation and remote diagnostic tools, reducing truck rolls, improving installation quality and improving overall network performance with proactive network management tools.
