D-Link’s Latest Offerings Help Cable Operators Extend Internet Connectivity Using a Home’s Existing Cable Wiring for Wall-to-Wall Coverage
ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — (SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2012, Booth #2512) – D-Link, the cost-effective standards-based unified networking solutions provider for consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, and service providers, introduced today at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2012 the new D-Link(®) WECB Wireless MoCA bridge and D-Link(®) ECB MoCA bridge for cable operators. Designed to provide wall-to-wall connectivity throughout a home, these new bridges join D-Link’s MoCA product family, utilizing unused bandwidth on a home’s existing coaxial wiring to deliver fast, reliable internet speed where it’s needed most – for HD streaming and online gaming to streaming multimedia to wireless devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
Using a home’s existing coaxial cable, the easy-to-setup Wireless MoCA bridge and MoCA bridge add Ethernet connection and strong wireless connection to any room – even to those hard-to-reach spots, such as home or small offices where concrete walls, successive floors in multi-storied buildings, or other architectural impediments could inhibit a wireless signal. Equipped with a built-in wireless access point, the WECB MoCA Bridge also allows users to wiresslessly stream photos, video and files directly to their connected devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets. In addition, both the WECB Wireless MoCA bridge and ECB MoCA bridge use separate frequencies to tramsit data and will not interrupt TV transmission.
“Comitted to providing cable operators with industry-leading home networking equipment, D-Link’s latest offerings are designed to meet the growing demand for a strong and reliable Internet network at every spot within the home,” said Eli Gavra, senior vice president, Service Provider Business Unit, D-Link Systems, Inc. “By using a home’s existing cable wiring, D-Link’s new Wireless MoCA bridge and MoCA bridge offer wired and wireless Internet access in rooms where a single gateway router cannot reach – allowing customers to seamlessly stream HD videos, photos and more to the furthest corners of a home.”
D-Link will be showcasing the D-Link Wireless MoCA bridge (WECB) and MoCA bridge (ECB) along with a suite of other products for cable operators, including Cloud Cameras, Cloud Routers, access points, storage solutions and streaming media devices, at D-Link’s booth (#2512) at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2012 from Oct. 17-19.
The Wireless MoCA bridge (WECB) and MoCA bridge (ECB) will be available in Q1 2013 through select service providers, and will be on display at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2012 in Orlando Oct. 17-19 (booth #2512).
