MoCA Heating up Home Networking Device Market

  • Infonetics Research
CAMPBELL, CA - MoCA (multimedia over coax) is playing an increasingly important role in the home networking market, according to Infonetics Research, an international market research and consulting firm serving the communications industry. "MoCA is again driving growth in the home networking device market, particularly shipments of video gateways in North America," notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "Deployments of cable and satellite STBs with integrated MoCA are slowly reaching a boil, and we expect DirecTV's Genie, Dish's Hopper, and Comcast's XG1 set tops to see increased shipments throughout 2013 and beyond."

Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest "Home Networking Devices" vendor market share and forecast report, which tracks residential gateways; broadband routers; HomePlug Powerline adapters; multimedia over coax (MoCA) set-top boxes (STBs), optical network terminals (ONTs), and coax-Ethernet adapters; and HPNA/ adapters.
