Truth in Networking

MoCA will continue the success of the highly provocative and entertaining panel from last year’s CONNECTIONS™ with a second installment at the 2009 event. This panel, Truth in Networking, consists of the most influential CE vendors in the industry. They will discuss and debate the issues, challenges, and solutions for home networking, including a complete and comprehensive assessment of the current home network environment.

Parks Associates reports that at the end of 2008, approximately 36 million U.S. households (31% of all U.S. homes), nearly 60 million Western European homes (34% of homes), and more than 160 million households worldwide had basic home network configurations. With networking solutions prevalent on such a massive scale, CONNECTIONS™ sessions such as MoCA’s will be invaluable in examining new business strategies that can best leverage the new connectivity market.
