Incoax Networks In:xtnd™
The Incoax Networks In:xtnd is a fiber extension platform that uses the existing, in-building coax to provide multigigabit performance for fiber to the building (FTTB) applications. Based on MoCA Access 2.5, In:xtnd supports a download data rate of 2.5 Gbps and upload data rate of 2 Gbps. Use of the platform provides such high-speed transmission at a cost 20% below the use of fiber to the unit and 40% less than DOCSIS 3.1, says the company. Each In:xtnd node offers four ports; each port can serve up to 31 apartments.
Judge’s comment: “Handing apartment buildings is an important and underserved area of the access network. This kind of FTTB + home networking is a good way to quickly serve this market.”
