INDIANAPOLIS, IN, September 4, 2012 – Legrand, the leader in connected home technologies and solutions, announced today a partnership with Antronix – a leading provider of active and passive devices to the broadband CATV industry – to develop MoCA compliant digital infrastructure products that enhance and support Legrand’s ever-expanding lineup of networking solutions. These devices are designed specifically to give custom installers a complete, versatile set of home networking tools to meet the current and future needs of the connected household.
“In designing our networking solutions, our goal from the beginning has been to provide dealers with a robust, reliable, and comprehensive suite of products and support,” said Fritz Werder, vice president and general manager for Legrand's Home Systems division. “We need to provide our customers with the very best in digital coax network solutions, making this partnership with Antronix so ideal. The brand is a mark of quality, and the company’s reputation in the cable industry is unparalleled.”
“Cable operators install Antronix products in their cable systems due to Antronix’s proven history for superior performance and reliability. The Legrand-Antronix partnership now makes our products available to professional installers and contractors who insist on building home networks utilizing the latest technologies, like MoCA,” said Neil Tang, executive vice president of Antronix. “It’s a perfect fit bringing Legrand’s expertise in connected home solutions and Antronix’s broadband products together.”
Initial offerings resulting from this partnership include the Coax Network Signal Blocker, which ensures the integrity of a coax network by isolating the signal inside the home; the Single-Port Digital Cable Amplifier with Coax Network Support, which boosts RF signal strength to support a strong video signal throughout the system; and three Digital Cable Splitters with Coax Network Support, all of which provide 6kV surge protection on all ports, exceed the performance standards set by major cable providers, and are fully compatible with existing and future networks such as MoCA, VoIP, and DOCSIS 3.0. Those three splitters are the Two-Way Digital Cable Splitter with Coax Network Support, Three-Way Digital Cable Splitter with Coax Network Support, and Four-Way Digital Cable Splitter with Coax Network Support.
