Coaxifi's WiFork Whole-Home Wi-Fi Kit Delivers Wi-Fi over Coax to Cord Cutters

Wi-Fi over coax delivers Wi-Fi directly to each room with a cable outlet, improving signal strength for streaming media devices and smart TV sets.

KANSAS CITY, MO, USA, July 17, 2018 / — Cord cutters now have a new use for their homes' coaxial cabling: Wi-Fi delivery. With patent-pending Wi-Fi over coax (WoCA™) technology, WiFork kits from Coaxifi® offer reliable whole-home Wi-Fi coverage for as little as 1/10th the cost of range extenders and mesh systems. Since WoCA travels free of obstructions through walls, homeowners no longer need to put up with degraded Wi-Fi performance due to signal absorption by concrete and drywall.

As more households subscribe to 'over the top' virtual MVPD services to stream live video programming, the need for reliable Wi-Fi has never been greater. Fortunately, bringing Wi-Fi to the back of a drywall TV niche or built-in TV cabinet is easy with WoCA. Coaxifi's WiFork sends a strong Wi-Fi signal directly to each room's cable outlet, with customized antennas that thread onto coaxial wall plates. This ensures low-latency, high-throughput connections between users' Wi-Fi routers and smart TV sets, streaming media devices, game consoles, and other connected devices. As a distributed antenna system, WiFork delivers Wi-Fi to the user 'edge' in each room to maximize modulated PHY rates and packet delivery, rather than squandering transmitted power on empty spaces between the router and connected devices as with traditional Wi-Fi delivery.

The best part? Cord cutters can keep using their compatible Wi-Fi routers. While many meshed range extenders fail to support Fast Roaming, Coaxifi's WoCA kits natively allow users to seamlessly roam from floor to floor on a single SSID. Unlike meshed systems that rely on unstable wireless links between floors, Coaxifi's WoCA kits eliminate hidden-node interference, multi-hop latency, and downtime caused by unpaired nodes. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars for low-power meshed systems using the 802.11n/ac chipsets of yesteryear, WiFork lets users delay purchasing a new router until meaningful upgrades – like 9.6-Gbps-capable 802.11ax or WPA3 with Protected Management Frames – reach the market. Since WiFork provides a future-proof Wi-Fi solution ready to work with both existing and new router models, users benefit from an assured upgrade path if and when they seek to purchase a new router.

WoCA kits also allow ISPs to keep consumer-premise equipment deployed in the field for longer, without the added expense of troubleshooting range extenders. Instead of crimping and wallfishing Ethernet cables, technicians can vastly reduce installation time by using existing coaxial cabling. ISPs can cross-sell a whole-home Wi-Fi solution that "just works" from the moment it's installed.

Each WiFork kit connects 4 cable outlets, with support for 16 or more rooms when used with multi-antenna routers. Larger deployments can be paired with multi-band amplifiers. WiForks are available for retail sale on Amazon, eBay, and

EJL Wireless Research Reports Global Macrocell BTS Antenna Shipments Up 7% in 2017

Earl Lum, President EJL Wireless Research

Product Code: GBSAMAF-S-2018

Antenna revenues surged 69% in 2017 due to sAIA and MM-ARS products; MM-ARS market to reach USD $70 billion by 2022; Huawei Technologies Remains Top Vendor

We remain skeptical about the return on investment of 64T64R TDD MM-ARS solutions being 100% of 5G NR networks. We believe that 32T32R TDD MM-ARS will be the volume driver.”

— Earl J. Lum, President

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 / — Global macrocell BTS antenna shipments increased 7% in 2017 despite weakness in China and India, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Macrocell BTS Antenna Market Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2022 10th Edition.” “Initial shipments of FDD/TDD antennas, coupled with growth in FDD antennas, sAIA products, and MM-ARS products supported the growth. Antenna revenues surged due to the mix shift towards higher port count passive products as well as increased shipments of sAIA and MM-ARS solutions,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. EJL Wireless Research is forecasting that macrocell BTS antenna shipments will decline by 10% in 2018 due to the shift towards higher port count passive antennas and continued weakness in China and India, offsetting initial 5G MM-ARS shipments in South Korea and the United States. However commercial deployments of 5G MM-ARS solutions will drive revenues up 234% in 2018.

EJL Wireless Research estimates that the Top 3 macrocell BTS antenna suppliers for units controlled 57% of total antenna shipments in 2017 while Top 3 macrocell BTS antenna suppliers for revenues captured 68% market share. The Top 3 antenna suppliers in unit shipment volumes were Huawei Technologies, Comba Telecom, and CommScope while the Top 3 antenna suppliers in revenues were Huawei Technologies, CommScope, and Kathrein. Chinese antenna suppliers captured 63% of shipments and 61% of revenues in 2017. Huawei Technologies was again the largest macrocell BTS antenna supplier in 2017 in terms of both units and revenues.

For currently overloaded LTE macrocell sites, EJL Wireless Research believes that the use of sector splitting with multi-beam antennas to add capacity may be the most economical option for mobile operators compared with the deployment of small cells to support ever increasing data usage from mobile subscribers. The potential to transform network capacity from a traditional three sector macrocell architecture to four, five, or more sectors per frequency band is on the near horizon.

“LTE-Advanced Pro services using 4×4 MIMO across multiple frequency bands, coupled with the strategy to consolidate all passive antenna ports onto a single panel per sector to support a “1+1” configuration are driving mobile network antenna upgrades using FDD and FDD/TDD antennas supporting 14-24 ports,” says Lum. The potential for a new class of antenna products, active (massive MIMO)/passive antenna radio systems (AP-ARS), is on the horizon as some mobile operators will not be able to deploy a “1+1” configuration on their macro sites and will be forced to deploy a ”1+0” configuration to support 5G NR services.

EJL Wireless Research forecasts global macro BTS antenna revenues to reach a record USD $74 billion by 2022 as massive MIMO antenna radio systems (MM-ARS) for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G services will represent USD $70 billion of the total.

“We remain skeptical about the return on investment and capacity gains of 64T64R TDD MM-ARS solutions being 100% of 5G NR networks. We forecast a tiered approach to 5G NR deployments with the majority of products being 32T32R MM-ARS and using the 64T64R MM-ARS for very high capacity sites,” says Lum.
