Following a successful trial of its MoCA Access 2.5 technology earlier this year, coaxial fibre extension vendor InCoax reports it has won an SEK 1.5 million with a US based Fibre/LAN Operator. After successful trials Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs) in San Diego, the operator has decided to place an initial order worth SEK1.5 million for further roll-outs in San Diego, Denver and Miami. The operator currently has approximately half a million subscribers and is active in more than 10 metropolitan areas in the US. The order will be supplied and invoiced during Q4 2020.

The news comes just days after InCoax announced the expansion of an existing field trial of its MoCA Access 2.5 platform with another unnamed North American Tier 1 fibre network operator. The extended project collaboration, worth US$150,000 will be carried out in two stages, with the first happening in October 2020 and the second during 1H21.

InCoax´ system-solution fits very well into this operator’s Fibre/LAN use case. This also provides a great opportunity to go forward with our enhanced product-line in a next step, which is currently being developed in close collaboration with another big operator.”

InCoax’s head of product management, marketing & sales Helge Tiainen added, “This order is important for the commercial application of the MoCA Access 2.5 technology on the US market. The further sales opportunity to this Operator as well as other operators with similar needs is significant.”

Of the extended trial, Ekengren said, “We are very satisfied that this North American Tier 1 Operator now decided to take the next step and it shows that our proposed solution is competitive and potentially disruptive to the access technologies they currently use. This represents a huge business opportunity for InCoax. Our solution should also be very interesting for other potential operator customers.”
