Support grows for MoCA and HomePlug | C2M : veille Digital Media |

The number of households in North American using the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) standard as their home networking technology of choice will exceed 25mn by 2014, with similar numbers for the HomePlug standard in Western Europe, according to ABI Research.

The first significant shipments of the HomePlug AV2 and MoCA 2.0 standards are expected to be seen in 2013, offering higher speeds as well as more robustness under different line conditions. Not all devices shipped using the new standards will support the full set of features however, so many will not offer gigabit speeds.
