    MoCA 2.5 delivers 2.5Gbps

    Michelle Clancy | 14 April 2016


    The Multimedia over Coax Alliance has approved its newest specification, MoCA 2.5.

    mocaThe spec supports speeds up to 2.5Gbps actual data rates, with additional features that address network management and security as required by service providers worldwide. The new specification is backward interoperable with MoCA 2.0 and MoCA 1.1.

    “MoCA has once again raised the performance bar for home networking with an increase in throughput that is more than two-and-a-half-times MoCA 2.0, with additional capabilities operators need and end users want. In addition, the technology was delivered in one year, from start to finish, further indicating that the Alliance can quickly respond to the market demands of operators,” said Charles Cerino, president of MoCA. “In MoCA 2.5, service providers have another comprehensive standard from MoCA for building their networks.”

    Additional MoCA 2.5 highlights include:

    • MoCA protected setup (MPS): easier set-up and addition of new nodes with password sharing via push-button (similar to Wi-Fi WPS).

    • Management Proxy: management of nodes that don’t have upper layer management support by supporting management queries from one node on behalf of other nodes.

    • Enhanced Privacy: secure data communications with additional longer password and using different keys between MoCA 2.5 nodes compared to what MoCA 1.1/MoCA 2.0 nodes use along with the ability to control data forwarding of legacy nodes to and from MoCA 2.5 nodes.

    • Network wide Beacon Power: provides better control of peak signal power on the coax by configuring the beacon power of nodes to an absolute number (within tolerance of the hardware) and advertise that absolute number to other nodes so that the same value is used after handoff.

    • Bridge detection: ability to distinguish between nodes belonging to different networks and pass proprietary information between nodes before admission, as well as pass that same information to upper layers to prevent neighbours from forming a common network.

    MoCA 2.5 offers additional performance profiles, which enable MoCA 2.0 devices to be upgraded to take advantage of the features described above: Profile B:400 Mbps net data rate up to 16 nodes, and 500 Mbps in turbo mode (two nodes only); Profile C: 800 Mbps net data rate with channel bonding up to 16 nodes, and 1Gbps in turbo mode (two nodes only); Profile D: 1.5 Gbps, 2 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps net data rates up to 16 nodes.

    The new specification is available to members now.

    Signiant creates Microsoft Azure pre-built content workflow

    Michelle Clancy | 14 April 2016


    Intelligent file movement specialist Signiant has announced the availability of a pre-built workflow that provides tight integration with the Microsoft Azure Media Services (AMS) platform.

    signiantThe automated workflow uses Signiant acceleration technology to transport content files quickly and securely from on-premises storage into Microsoft Azure, where AMS retrieves and processes the assets. The finished content is then returned to an on-premises location via Signiant.

    The combined solution provides media companies with a means of accessing Microsoft’s cloud transcoding capabilities from on-premises infrastructure, allowing them to take advantage of the elastic nature of such services.

    The transcoding workflow is controlled by the automation engine incorporated in Signiant’s flagship Manager+Agents (M+A) solution. M+A functionality has been extended to the cloud via integration with the company’s Flight offering – a fully-managed, auto-scaling SaaS solution that provides fast, reliable, secure movement of content to and from Azure blob storage. The high-speed transport backbone of most major media enterprises is already powered by M+A, so existing workflows can be extended to a public cloud platform such as Azure simply by adding Flight.

    “Our customers are increasingly turning to the cloud for various media storage and processing tasks,” said Margaret Craig, CEO, Signiant. “The Azure team is continuing to innovate on this front, and we’re confident that by combining the power of our technologies we can enable customers to quickly deploy robust cloud workflows that solve real problems.”

    The Signiant workflow delivers media assets to Azure, along with an optional premium or standard transcoding profile. It monitors the transcode within AMS, reporting progress or error messages to the customer. The workflow can also be configured to delete processed assets from AMS once they have been successfully downloaded. The workflow combines both Signiant M+A and Azure’s scalability to allow multiple transcoding jobs to be handled concurrently.

    “We’re pleased to work with Signiant to extend the AMS ecosystem,” said Sudheer Sirivara, GM, Azure Media & CDN, Microsoft. “Fast, secure upload and download of high-value digital assets is a key element in cloud-based media workflows, and Signiant’s SaaS approach aligns well with customer needs for fast, easy deployment.”

    Earlier in the month, Signiant announced the integration of its Manager + Agents solution with the Avid Interplay | MAM system. Using Signiant’s proprietary transport technology, M+A is claimed to be able to move files up to 200 times faster than standard Internet transfers and protects valuable content with a comprehensive security model. The integration means that customers can initiate accelerated file transfers from within Interplay | MAM, a media asset management system that enables teams to ingest, import, manage, find and deliver media in a mixed Avid and third-party environment

    Argentina’s local cablecos want to delay convergence

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 15 April 2016


    Argentina’s cable TV providers don’t believe they are strong enough to compete against telcos once convergent pay-TV services are allowed in the country, so are asking for a delay of five years.


    cableIn a territory in which cable operators are strongly established as TV providers, many, especially the smaller ones, are wary of the telcos’ entrance into pay-TV market following convergent services being allowed.

    The country’s government has set a two-year period, extendable to three years, during which time both telcos and cable providers should prepare to enter a free competition market.

    “Convergence is a reality, an awaited modernisation of the industry,” said Jorge Di Blasio, president of Red Intercable, the organisation of small and local pay-TV providers. “But two or three years are not enough for cablecos, especially in the country’s inland, to carry out the necessary investments to compete against international telecom giants.”

    Therefore, Red Intercable has a plan for a five-year period, extendable to ten, during which time telcos would be banned from offering pay-TV services.

    For cablecos, the debate around convergence has mostly focused on whether telcos can or cannot offer pay-TV, but no one is talking about cable operators entering other telecoms businesses. “This debate should be an opportunity to include other convergence aspects, such as access to mobile telecoms for every operator within the market,” added Di Blasio.

    Netflix reports lowest churn as fifth of US broadband households cancel OTT in 2015

    Michelle Clancy | 15 April 2016


    According to research from Parks Associates, a fifth of broadband US households have cancelled at least one over-the-top (OTT) video service in the past 12 months, up two percentage points from a year ago.

    parks ottBrett Sappington, senior director of research at Parks, said that Netflix is still the OTT leader in the US, with 52% of all US broadband households subscribing to the service at the end of 2015. Netflix also had the lowest churn rate as a percentage of its total subscriber base. In the past 12 months, just 5% of US broadband households cancelled their Netflix account, including those who cancelled at the end of the trial period. That figure represents 9% of the company’s current subscriber base.

    The report revealed that 5% of US broadband households indicated that they had unsubscribed from Amazon’s Prime Video service in 2015, a figure that represents 19% of those who claim to be current subscribers to Amazon Prime Video. 7% had cancelled a Hulu subscription in 2015, representing approximately half of Hulu’s current subscriber base.

    “Several factors contribute to OTT video service churn by consumers,” Sappington remarked. “In some instances, consumers are experimenting with new services, trying a service and cancelling before the trial period ends or within a few months. Popular shows or events, such as HBO’s Game of Thrones or WWE Network’s Wrestlemania, can be beneficial in terms of attracting users. However, there is a risk that consumers will unsubscribe once they’ve watched these popular items,” Sappington said. “Ongoing perceived value, in the long run, is the biggest driver to churn. Services have to continue to provide users with validation of value and a reason to return. Otherwise, consumers will discontinue services to save money or because they feel that the subscription is not worth the cost.”

    Overall, about 14% of US broadband households subscribe to Hulu, and 24% have a subscription to Amazon. The churn rate for Amazon’s video service declined slightly from Q2 2015 to the end of the year. There were 101 OTT video services available in the US market as of March 2016. Only 5% of US broadband households have a subscription to one or more of the 98 options beyond Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu. This list includes CBS All Access, Sling TV, HBO Now and Crunchyroll. 3% of US broadband households cancelled a subscription to an OTT video service other than one of the top three in the last 12 months.

    “On a service by service basis, the smaller OTT video services have relatively high churn, particularly relative to Netflix and Amazon,” Sappington said. “Reasons for cancellation vary by service, but there are some common trends. Cancellers of OTT services with linear features (such as Sling TV, CBS All Access, and PlayStation Vue) are more likely to subscribe with the intent to terminate the subscription after watching specific content. They are also more likely to be critical of a service’s interface than those who cancel VOD-only OTT video services.”
