Zoom Begins Shipments of Motorola MM1000 MoCA Adapter
BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 3, 2018 / Zoom Telephonics, Inc. ("Zoom") (OTCQB: ZMTP) has begun shipments of the Motorola MM1000, a bonded 2.0 MoCA Adapter produced under exclusive license from Motorola Mobility LLC.
The MM1000 uses a home's existing coaxial cables to provide a high-speed wired Ethernet connection between a router's Ethernet LAN port and any device that has an Ethernet port. The MM1000 sends and receives data at up to 1,000 Mbps between a router or modem/router and an HDTV, computer, wireless access point, game station, DVD player, network storage device, TiVo box, or other Ethernet-capable device.
The MM1000 transmits data over coax cable that's also used for cable TV and/or Internet, or for FiOS or another fiber optic service. Up to 16 devices, each with a MoCA Adapter, can connect to a MoCA-enabled router. Setup is easy, with no need for configuring the MoCA adapter or re-configuring a router.
"If someone has a coaxial cable that runs near a router and another Ethernet-capable device, this is a great way to connect them," said Frank Manning, Zoom's President and CEO. "Our MoCA Adapter transmits data faster and more reliably than WiFi, and MoCA excels at connecting the router to a distant device such as an HDTV or wireless access point. The cost is reasonable, only $59.99 per MoCA Adapter. There is already a significant market for MoCA adapters in the US, with Amazon selling about $2 million in MoCA Adapters per year. We expect the US and international markets to grow significantly as people recognize the high performance and easy installation of MoCA."
