Difference between Metro-E and EoC? More inside, help!

Is there one? Can't find this with google for some reason.

Also, if I have 11 sites using traditional T1s with MPLS, and I add another site using EoC, will it run on the MPLS network the same?

n00b questions, bear with me!

EoC = Ethernet over Coax http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_over_coax

Another variation of such service is MOCA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimedia_over_Coax_Alliance

You see such deployments at home with Set Top Boxes communicating to the internet and within your home network.

Any coax capable device would have an IP and can provide/obtain services to/from other stations.

I haven't seen EoC used to connect locations. You can find terms such as EoMPLS and that's certainly used on network deployments.
