AT&T Labs joins MoCA
June 7, 2006 -- The Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) has announced the addition of its latest member, AT&T Laboratories, Inc.
AT&T Labs will represent AT&T in the organization; in a press release, AT&T says that membership in MoCA is part of the carrier's strategy "to investigate and promote a seamless method for moving digital content throughout the home, via any technology and medium that makes the most technical and economic sense for the end consumer."
"We are evaluating MoCA technology as one option for distributing IP-based video services in customers' homes," commented David Deas, vice president of networks and services for AT&T Laboratories Inc. "We look forward to working with the Alliance as it continues to strengthen technology and standards for digital communications over in-home coaxial cables."
"AT&T Labs is a valuable new member of MoCA and brings vast experience and insight to the MoCA organization," added Ladd Wardani, president of MoCA. "With the MoCA standard able to address operator and retail segments using in-home coax, AT&T Labs' leading representation of triple play over DSL significantly helps MoCA meet its goals."
The announcement was made at this week's Globalcomm 2006 event in Chicago.
