HomeGrid Forum announced the latest developments in G.hn technology at CES this week, including demonstrations of consumer devices with built-in G.hn handling Ultra-HD services, and multi-vendor solutions for gigabit home networking. The demonstrations were designed to show that users can connect any device, anywhere in the home, over any wire using the fastest and most reliable networking technology available today.
For the first time, smart TVs and Wi-Fi routers with embedded G.hn were shown. Other exciting new demonstrations included multi-vendor interoperability within each of the three main G.hn system types (powerline, phoneline and coax), a large-scale network with multiple TVs running multiple videos over G.hn powerline, and a PLC Smart Home system. In addition, HomeGrid members showed how G.hn copes with 'Neighboring Networks' interference in multi-dwelling units (MDUs), a key differentiator between G.hn and other home networking technologies.
G.hn networks can operate over any wire type, are simple and easy to install, and support the latest developments in high bit-rate applications, in particular reliably transporting multiple streams of 3D, 4K and Ultra-HD video around the home.
As an industry alliance, HomeGrid Forum represents many companies that are developing G.hn solutions. Participants in the booth this year included ALLION Labs, ARRIS, Comtrend, Marvell, Sendtek, Sigma Designs, Ubiquoss and Xingtera.
