Entropic’s SoC Technology Bundled with its Ultra-Reliable MoCA Solutions for Clients and Adapters Power the Next Generation Gateway/IP-Client Architecture
ORLANDO, Fl., March 11, 2013 – At CableLabs® Winter Conference 2013, Entropic (Nasdaq: ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, is demonstrating its next-generation silicon and software solutions that enable MSOs to transform how traditional broadcast and IP streaming video is seamlessly, reliably, and securely delivered, processed, and distributed into and throughout the home. The CableLabs Winter Conference takes place this week in Orlando, Florida, and is an industry conference that showcases the latest in technology that service operators may employ to better serve cable customers.
At CableLabs Winter Conference 2013, Entropic will highlight:
- A production-ready platform implementation of the Comcast Reference Design Kit (RDK) 1.1 based on Entropic’s latest set-top box system-on-a-chip (SoC), the EN7588. Powered by a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor and market-proven MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) connectivity, Entropic’s RDK 1.1 implementation allows OEMs to accelerate time-to-market for a range of cost-effective MoCA-enabled IP-Client devices that run native and cloud-based applications
- Advanced video processing and scaling capabilities of the EN7588, by enabling a dynamic multi-window decoding implementation that displays multiple video streams at a single instance. This capability is unique to Entropic’s solutions, and is based on an innovative distributed platform architecture that achieves a high-level of system efficiency.
- Industry-leading MoCA 2.0 products including Entropic’s second-generation MoCA-to-WiFi Adapter reference design. This solution addresses whole-home data coverage using MoCA 2.0 as the backbone and branching off using WiFi to mobile devices to minimize MSO service calls associated with spotty whole-home WiFi service. Entropic will also highlight new MoCA-based Ethernet-to-Coax Adapters (ECAs) and the world’s first compact, low-power USB reference design, which provides MSOs access to the highest speed, most reliable network backbone.
“The cable industry is transitioning from traditional set-top box/digital video recorder architectures to a Gateway/IP-Client network structure,” said Dr. Anton Monk, co-founder and vice president of Technology at Entropic. “Recognizing this macro dynamic early, Entropic developed platform silicon and software solutions to accelerate the time-to-market of next generation MSO products - enabling secure, reliable and cost-effective IP video streaming as well as advanced services including VOD, enriched search and discovery in program guides and cloud-based social engagement.”
