BETHLEHEM, Pa.--()--In response to the fiber buildout worldwide, and the continuous demand for reliable bandwidth, MDSLink, Inc. is now offering MaGiC™, a very high-performance, networking module that uses the existing coax. MaGiC is a cost-effective, easy-to-install module that extends the fiber footprint found in MDUs, single-family homes, hotels/resorts and offices or any building with existing coax.

MaGiC-SFP 2.5™ (Multi-Gigabit Coax Small Form-factor Pluggable) provides up to 2.5 Gbps—symmetrical—actual data rates when plugged into an Ethernet network (SFP/SFP+ port).


- Last 100-meter distribution using existing, in-building coax.

- Wireless AP backhaul in-premise. Supplements in-home Wi-Fi® mesh networks using fail safe, wireline backhaul between devices. Using WAPs with SFP-ports, operators can backhaul the traffic with MaGiC at speeds up to 2.5G in either direction.

- Hospitality/commercial wireless AP backhaul and powering. Using standalone power injectors, a single SFP/SFP+-based Ethernet switch combined with the MaGiC SFP can provide both data and power to remote APs in hallways, hotel rooms, public spaces and meeting rooms.

- Point-to-point (P2P), building-to-building or in-building. Using two media converters with two MaGiC SFP’s to deliver up to 2.5 Gbps over coax in a point-to-point setting.

MaGiC has a maximum packet error rate (PER) of 1e-6/1e-8 with a latency of six ms.

Channel stacking allows the delivery of up to 4 Gbps on a single coax wire by using high and low frequency MaGiC SFP’s.

Roadmap to the next generation MoCA Access 3.0 standard provides a smooth transition to 10 Gbps with backward interoperability with MoCA Access 2.5/2.0.

“Increasing the capacity of last mile data services is expensive. Existing solutions either call for new cable/fiber installation, or simply don’t meet the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth at reasonable prices increments," said Jim Luciano, president and founder of MDSLink.

MaGiC works in all telco/fiber, cable and satellite environments and is available now.
