MoCA Drives Growth in Home Networking Devices Market In 1H12

MoCA set-top boxes and adapters continue to show sustained growth in North America

CAMPBELL, Calif.--Market research firm 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.


"Among the wide variety of gear we track for our home networking devices report, the devices growing at the fastest rate have one thing in common: multimedia over coax," explains Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "MoCA set-top boxes and adapters continue to show sustained growth in North America, where DirecTV, Dish Networks, and a growing list of cable companies are rolling out whole-home DVR and video gateway services."

Heynen adds: "While we're still in the early stages of MoCA device growth, we expect MoCA to become the de facto wired technology for video distribution to devices in the home. Going forward, multiscreen video will be a key driver for MoCA."
