Working with an experienced certification provider, like NTS, allows us to provide our members the support and attention they require to get more MoCA products into the market
Culver City, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2008
National Technical Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:NTSC) (NTS), a leading provider of quality, conformance and certification testing, quality registration and managed services, announced today that it has extended its agreement with the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA®) as its exclusive worldwide testing laboratory to perform certifications for MoCA products.
MoCA is an industry-driven standard which promotes networking of digital video and entertainment throughout the home, using the existing coaxial cable. MoCA technology provides the backbone for home entertainment networks of multiple wired and wireless products, including "triple play" technologies (i.e., voice, data and video). During certification, MoCA products are subjected to a battery of tests within a controlled environment to ensure the product will interoperate with other certified products from other MoCA members. At the completion of the first year of certification testing, MoCA and NTS jointly agreed upon this extension based on the experience and skill NTS demonstrated in performing all required testing.
"NTS is pleased to have provided certification testing for MoCA over the last year and a half and we're looking forward to helping many more members in getting their MoCA product to the market place," said Osman Sakr, NTS CTO. "The ability of MoCA members to come to an authorized independent test laboratory whenever their products are ready for the market will provide them additional flexibility in their product release schedules."
"Working with an experienced certification provider, like NTS, allows us to provide our members the support and attention they require to get more MoCA products into the market," said Tom Leacock, Chairman of the MoCA Marketing Working Group. "We look forward to continuing to work with NTS on MoCA certifications."
