InCoax’s Fiber Access Extension technology solves the ‘Last Mile Challenge’ of providing MultiGigabit broadband services to Multi-Dwelling Units (MDUs). It increases property reach and subsequently grows the addressable market size for operators. It uses the existing in-house coax cable infrastructure, positioning it as the cost and time-saving alternative to pulling new cables.
Components for Fiber and Fixed Wireless Access extension using MoCA Access
Control Unit & DPU
The Control Unit and DPU (Distribution Point Unit) are active components with the task of controlling the IP traffic in the network.
Diplexers, taps and splitters
Passive components to tailor the coax network to support the MoCA AccessTM data services.
The modem communicates with the DPU/Controller and distributes IP traffic at the chosen frequency bands, symmetrically if supported by the fiber service (ex. XGS-PON).
Legal Deployment Considerations
Coaxial networks have been deployed in terrestrial, cable- & satellite-TV applications across the globe for more than 40 years.
Building structure regulations and legal codes differ from continent to continent, state to state. What are my rights and obligations for usage of an existing network? Who owns the network? What legal considerations do I have to take when deploying a Fiber Access Extension network using existing in-building coaxial infrastructure?
For instance, in late 2021, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) investigated whether certain types of broadband agreements between building owners and providers could hamper competition. This included revenue sharing arrangements, exclusive wiring and marketing agreements between building owners and providers. Contracts of this kind can lock out other broadband competitors, reduce choice for tenants and potentially lead to increased prices. The newly adopted rules gives tenants in apartments and office buildings more transparency, competition and choice for broadband services. Read News here.
