What would need to be changed in the SWM firmware?
Don't have a good answer...but...also note that the SWM's out there have varying firmware versions, which makes one wonder what the differences just might be or if they have any impact on this particular "project".
For this "project" it would seem more of a addition to the hardware [good old adapter T :lol:]
Posted this in the Network/SWM thread and wanted to highlight this post for you guys.
Answers many of our questions, I think.
I did run across this pdf overview given to the IEEE: http://ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2007/at-sovadia-MoCA-overview-0507.pdf
Excellent summary of the key MoCA features as of 2007:
8 Nodes per coax net (aiming for 16)
Any node can become the master of ceremonies (network controller node)
New nodes must join and be approved
3 different probes to see if a frequency is available for use
The overview is very readable, recommended.
I found another overview that talks about mass market testing in FIOS homes. So the larger than expected numbers of deployments might actually be possible.
And Spec 1.1 does stretch the abilities to 16 nodes.
I went at looked at the link to Fratguys that was posted in that thread...Scott mentioned that they had MRV over coax at the retailer conference and when the people there went to take pictures of the equipment used to do it all the saw were DVRs hooked to a SWM.......
guess we'll know soon how real (or not) that was. seems feasible in the future but not with the currently shipping technology.
being that this is a private forum ... any clues what the SWM v2 firmware provides?
Excellent! But two years old. I wonder if much has changed since then? Guess we'll know soon.
That's very likely VOS....normalizing firmware would also likely involve an additional new gadget for us to use, which is not planned any time soon, according to past discussions on the topic.
I still am curious, however, what the firmware differences bring to the table, as a number of us have more than one SWM device, and they don't all have the same firmware version.
No idea, but would also love to know.
On the MoCA Field Testing chart there was this bullet:
Test coordinated by laptop PC
Would be nice to have each device reporting its own throughput and status, and a program for us to use.
I read that MoCA 2.0 was already being worked on. Was unsure when it would get certification.
My SWM version is already at 2.xx.
I'm at v1.08
Me Too! wonder if we will ever be able to upgrade it...
I have 2 SWM units....one in the 1.x series and one in the 2.x series.
Still interested to know what the differences might be in those 2 generations of versions....no answer seen here yet.
One of my SWMs is a 0.X series...
Both my SWM8's are 1.0.8 firmware version and 1.0.0 library version.
