Dedicated to accelerating seamless, ubiquitous home networking, Entropic Communications Inc. and Intellon Corp. are collaborating to speed the availability of home networking solutions that combine coaxial cable and powerline communications.

The Entropic-Intellon relationship will bring together solutions based on the most prominent, reliable and widely distributed home networking wired standards available today: Multimedia over Coax (MoCA) and HomePlug AV (HPAV). With a combined total of more than 55 million MoCA- and HomePlug-enabled home networking devices around the world, the two companies are committed to continuing to improve the connected home entertainment experience. Aligning the capabilities of Entropic's MoCA and Intellon's HPAV solutions will ensure continued compatibility with tens of millions of devices already deployed by service providers and consumers throughout the world and offer customers a solid pathway to the highly anticipated MoCA 2.0 and HPAV2 standards, which are expected to enable PHY rates in excess of 1Gbit/s.

"Customers are continuing to tell us that MoCA and HPAV together offer an unbeatable wireline communications solution, both today and tomorrow," said Rick Furtney, president and CEO, Intellon. "Our collaboration with Entropic is intended to meet the immediate market demand for these market-leading solutions while we work closely on next-generation technologies that will offer even higher multi-wire bandwidth with backwards compatibility to current de facto standards."

"The Intellon and Entropic collaboration represents a significant commitment to ensure compatibility for the future of home entertainment networking, based on solutions that are already widely deployed worldwide," said Vinay Gokhale, senior VP, marketing and business development, Entropic. "We look forward to building our relationship with Intellon to accelerate adoption of easy to implement, high-performance home networking that provides complete coverage throughout the home using existing wiring."
