SOGETEL: Use Dark Coax to Easily Deliver Triple Play Services

Model: GCA-6000

CHALLENGE

Sogetel was seeking a better way to deliver triple play services in homes where installing new CAT5 cabling was not possible. When deploying triple-play-services in fiber to the home (FTTH) installs, the coaxial cable was left unused. In their previous solution, they used these ‘dark’ coaxial cables to deliver an Ethernet connection to Set-Top-Boxes with a MoCA Adapter. However, Sogetel encountered issues with the MoCA Adapters, including Mac Address table limitations and unreliable power supplies.
