Actiontec Uses MoCA to Extend WiFi Signals
The new WCB3000 promises stronger signals, faster speeds, and better coverage.
June 27, 2013 by Rachel Cericola

These days, a lot of people depend on WiFi for work and play. However, those signals aren’t made to stream extremely long distances. Having TVs, Blu-ray players, smartphones and computers all connected to the same network typically makes matters even worse. 

That’s why Actiontec has launched the WCB3000 Wi-Fi Wireless Network Adapter. Before your eyes glaze over at the thought of a WiFi adapter, know that this one uses MoCA (Multimedia over Coax) to strengthen and extend those signals throughout the home. This is something special. It’s also something that should be pretty reliable.

Besides the wired MoCA connection, the WCB3000 offers up dual 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. The end result boasts stronger signals, faster speeds, and better coverage. Other features include auto-configuration and the TR-069 for service provider remote management.

“The WCB3000 is designed to ensure broadband subscribers can enjoy their tablets and other devices in a 2(nd) floor bedroom, out on the back patio, or in the kitchen,” said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec Electronics. “The adapter is an important part of our overall Whole Home Wireless strategy aimed at tackling deadzones and making sure subscribers enjoy the broadband speeds they’re paying for.”

Actiontec has yet to announce pricing or availability for the WCB3000.
