ASUS Announces the MA-25 Coax-to-Ethernet MoCA Adapter
TAIPEI, Taiwan, August 15, 2022 — ASUS today announced the MA-25 Coax-to-Ethernet MoCA Adapter, a device that uses pre-existing coaxial wiring in the home to provide wired and wireless internet connections that are fast, stable and protected. The adapter enables wiring normally set aside for cable TV to be leveraged to build a fast and reliable MoCA network in locations with thick walls and multiple floors that may affect the performance of a purely wireless network.
With the MA-25, users can enjoy up to 2.5 Gbps wired backhaul connections, with an easy band-mode switch to avoid signal interference with DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems. The MoCA Protected Setup (MPS) feature lets users securely add devices to the network with the press of one button, similarly to how WPS is used with wireless networks. Gamers may also find that a MoCA network delivers reduced latency, faster downloads and fewer lag spikes.
Installation is designed to be easy, courtesy of a right-angled cable accessory that lets the user mount the MA-25 without needing to use any tools. The MA-25 also features four mounting holes for scenarios where reinforced installation may be desirable. And it can be connected to a nearby WiFi router to wirelessly extend a home network, eliminate dead zones and reduce the potential hassles of Ethernet cable management.
As part of a deep commitment to sustainability, ASUS has invested in green product R&D for many years, acquiring strict international certifications along the way for environmentally friendly practices. The exterior housing of the MA-25 is 69% post-consumer recycled plastic that provides strong signal protection, and the paper-based packaging is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The box is also designed to double as a cable organizer, once its contents have been removed.
