What is MoCA 2.5 & How Will it Make My WiFi Better?

Learn > MoCA > What is MoCA 2.5 & How Will it Make My WiFi Better?

MoCA 2.5 is the most updated MoCA standard. MoCA 2.5 is capable of up to 2.5 Gbps actual throughputs and is backward interoperable with MoCA 2.0 and MoCA 1.1.

Before we get to how MoCA 2.5 improves your WiFi here’s a littler background on MoCA:

Over the years, there have been different “levels” or standards of MoCA. Here’s a brief look at how MoCA has evolved:

  • MoCA 1.0 offered 100 Mbps speeds.
  • MoCA 1.1 offered 175 Mbps speeds and was backward compatible to MoCA 1.0
  • MoCA 2.0 offers 500 Mbps speeds. This standard is still widely used today and is also compatible with MoCA 1.0 and 1.1.
  • MoCA 2.5 is the most updated MoCA standard offered today. It offers up to 2.5 Gbps throughput speeds.


The Upgrades from MoCA 2.0 to 2.5

Let’s do a comparison of the changes from MoCA 2.0 to 2.5:

MoCA 2.0

  • 1 Gbps actual throughput
  • Average 3.5ms latency
  • Fully backward interoperable with MoCA 1.1.

MoCA 2.5

Offers everything that MoCA 2.0 does, plus more:

  • 2.5 Gbps actual throughput
  • Less than 5ms latency
  • MoCA protected setup (MPS)
  • Enhanced privacy and security overall
  • Provides better control of peak signal power on the coax by configuring the beacon power of nodes to an absolute level
  • Bridge detection distinguishes between nodes, which helps with things like preventing neighbors from forming a common network
  • Backward compatible to MoCA 2.0

And more. In summary, MoCA 2.5 is faster, stronger and more secure.


How MoCA 2.5 Improves WiFi

WiFi is great because its wireless nature is convenient. But WiFi has shortcomings. Wireless networks experience varying speeds and signal strengths because they are susceptible to interferences. That’s why pairing a wired component helps support your WiFi network.
