HomeGrid Forum Publishes Whitepaper Describing How G.hn Unifies Home Networking Market

Now Available for Download: Whitepaper Outlines How Coexistence and Interoperability Can Be Achieved With United Nations ITU-T Home Networking Standard

BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - G.hn is a standard for next-generation home networking being developed by the International Telecommunication Union's Standardization Sector (ITU-T). G.hn is designed to operate over any kind of home wiring, including powerlines, phone lines, and coaxial cables. As part of the migration path towards a single unifying home networking technology, it's expected that G.hn networks will need to coexist with several types of existing home networking technologies.

WHAT: HomeGrid Forum's new whitepaper outlines the compatibility mechanisms between G.hn transceivers and existing, non-ITU-T standard home networking devices, including coexistence and interoperability options.

WHO: Contributors to this whitepaper include: Chano Gomez, DS2; Stefano Galli, Panasonic; Barry O'Mahony, Intel Corporation; Vladimir Oksman, Infineon Technologies; and Mario Finocchiaro, Aware.

WHEN: The whitepaper is available now.
