HomeGrid Forum to Show High Speed G.hn Home Networking and Multi-Vendor Interoperability at CES

Exhibit Includes Live Demos of Multi-Node Networks and New G.hn Products

BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 --


News highlights:

  • HomeGrid Forum is showing networks delivering multiple High Definition streams in live G.hn demos at CES in Las Vegas this week

  • Demos include multi-vendor interoperability over multi-node networks

  • G.hn ecosystem on display includes Comtrend, Marvell, Metanoia, Sigma Designs, Tangotec and Xingtera

  • Display also includes G.hn MIMO-based products from multiple vendors

  • System vendors' designs incorporating G.hn are showing for the first time

Home networks that include certified silicon products, interoperable systems and key features such as Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Neighboring Domain Interference Mitigation (NDIM) are on show at the HomeGrid Forum booth at this week's CES International Show in Las Vegas (January 08-11).

With a mixture of live demonstrations and lively displays, HomeGrid Forum, the industry alliance driving the development and deployment of G.hn (Gigabit Home Networking), is showcasing its powerful Connected Home vision for hybrid networks. With HomeGrid Forum members Marvell, Metanoia and Sigma Designs showing live demonstrations of interoperability joined with displays from Comtrend, Tangotec and Xingtera, the HomeGrid Forum booth (Booth 21906, South Hall 1, Ground Level) is an important focal point for home networking trends, ideas and designs this year. The displays demonstrate home networks for the distribution of IPTV and multimedia content over existing in-home wires, providing the power, throughput and reach of a wired backbone for the hybrid home network.

CES 2013 G.hn demonstrations in the HomeGrid booth are displaying multiple HD streams from each node of the network. With several high definition services running over the network concurrently, the demonstrations set the scene for new high speed, high quality home networking environments that are easy and cost-effective to install. Vendor displays present G.hn-enabled products and designs from different manufacturers and the advanced G.hn features that set it apart from other home networking technologies. These include NDIM -- the interference mitigation measures incorporated within the G.hn standard for high-density MDU deployments -- and G.hn's MIMO option that improves robustness and throughput.

Matt Theall, President of the HomeGrid Forum, said: "This year's CES has given us the opportunity to showcase the latest developments in G.hn. Now that Certification of silicon is well under way, the system companies are really making every effort to get their designs ready for certification. Our focus is now increasingly on being able to demonstrate the benefits of G.hn in terms of its capabilities and advanced features in real world field tests, while ensuring our multi-vendor silicon and system eco-system is well recognized throughout the industry for its strength in numbers. This year at CES we are demonstrating that G.hn is the wired home networking technology to use from now on. It is real, it is ready to deploy, and it is the best over any wire."

G.hn is a powerful home-networking standard that defines the delivery of multichannel HD content throughout the home using existing wires, including powerline cables, coax and copper wires and plastic optical fiber. It is an open standard, developed by the ITU-T and based on the technical requirements set by service providers. It was recently the subject of a Designing Spaces TV broadcast which can be viewed online on the HomeGrid Forum website at http://www.homegridforum.org/

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
As enterprises move to all-IP networks and cloud-based applications, communications service providers (CSPs) – facing increased competition from over-the-top providers delivering content via the Internet and independently of CSPs – must be able to offer seamless cloud-based communication and collaboration solutions that can scale for small, midsize, and large enterprises, as well as public sector organizations, in order to keep and grow market share. The latest version of Oracle Communications Unified Communications Suite gives CSPs the capability to do just that. In addition, its integration ...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
