Moca SFP transceiver: Magic-SFP

New Around Here
FYI, the Magic-SFP transceivers are now on sale for $125.


From my last exchange with SWG, they mentioned the adapter will only be able to do 1G with Mikrotik routers. I suspect that is due to the typical SFP+ negotiation of 1G/10G only.

The 1G limitation here (at least for Mikrotik routers) would mean Magic-SFP would behave similarly to a Moca 2.5 adapter with 1G ethernet port.

What's notable about this transceiver is its operating band starts from 400MHz rather than the usual 1125MHz.

Anyone intending to try this new transceiver?

An interesting product. Why they don't use a MoCA adapter? Cheaper and can provide 2.5Gbps bandwidth.

I looked deeper at some of the presentation material.

Looks like the Magic-SFP uses Moca Access, whereas typical consumer devices use Moca Home.

That would explain why the transceiver RF band starts from 400MHz. It might not be compatible with typical consumer adapters.

With changing the band filter, the normal MoCA adapter can run over 400-900MHz, as a MoCA Access CPE.
The quesiton is, who want to use MoCA Access. Looks like more and more ISPs are moving to fiber.
