Pace and Broadcom Develop Ultra-Fast IP Client with MoCA 2.0

7 January 2013

New Device Enables Cloud-Based Applications and Services On All Televisions in the Home

Pace (LSE: PIC), a leading global developer of advanced technologies for service providers, today announced an ultra-fast, high performance IP client set-top box with MoCA 2.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, developed in partnership with Broadcom using the Xi3 product specification and Reference Design Kit (RDK) software developed by Comcast.

The new Pace client device has industry leading graphics, memory and processing power enabled by Broadcom’s BCM7428 IP set-top box system-on-a-chip (SoC) client solution. The new Pace client device leverages DLNA and MoCA 2.0 home networking technologies to deliver content and services to any television in the home, and aligns with Comcast’s gateway and client reference architecture. This highly flexible client device will run multiple software stacks including the RDK from Comcast. The hardware design and functionality also has optional wireless connectivity.

“Our work with Pace demonstrates our commitment to delivering interactive, rich and personalized multi-screen entertainment experiences in the home,” said Dan Marotta, Broadcom’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, Broadband Communications Group. “Our solution supports the latest home networking technologies, including MoCA 2.0, that accelerate the next generation connected server-client home ecosystem.”

“Pace and Broadcom are a leading team in developing around Comcast’s hardware and software specifications,” said Steve Reynolds, Senior Vice President, Premises Technology for Comcast Cable. “The availability of a high-performance, RDK-based IP client set-top box is an important milestone in the deployment of a comprehensive quad play home network architecture.”

“Pace’s best in class device design approach led us to select MoCA 2.0 as the baseline for IP video distribution in the home,” said Tim O’Loughlin, President, Pace Americas. “It provides more than double the performance and capacity compared to legacy approaches, and offers critical power management capabilities for new low power requirements.”

Target deployments are planned for 2013. The new IP Client with MoCA 2.0 will be available for select demonstration by appointment with Pace and Broadcom.
