The HomePNA Alliance wants us to know that it is still in the fight as an alternative (to Ethernet) networking technology. It today announced HomePNA 3.1 certification of nine new products and the first 320 Mbps chipset reference design from CopperGate.
The newly-certified products include VDSL2 and ADSL2+ residential gateways, Ethernet to coax bridges and a set top box. Companies included 2Wire, D-Link, SMC, SendTek and Scientific Atlanta.
The HomePNA Alliance today announced that three more companies have joined. The new members are CAIW, a Dutch cable service provider of television, Internet and radio, Ooma, a VoIP handset and service provider, and Phybridge, a gateway manufacturer.
HomePNA creates, promotes and certifies home networking over existing coax cables and phone wires to deliver Internet Protocol (IP) services like IPTV, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and data.
The HomePNA Alliance announced today it now has more than 40 member companies collaborating to promote the adoption of the only multimedia home networking standard approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). HomePNA technology enables high-speed, triple-play Internet services over both phone wires and coaxial cables at speeds up to 320 megabits per second.
The newest members are AFL Telecommunication, a fiber optics product manufacturer and VDSL2 RF filter components manufacturer, Askey Computer Corp., a modem and set-top box manufacturer, CyberTAN Technology, Inc., a manufacturer of broadband and wireless networking equipment, and Medium Link System Technology, a multi-tenant unit (MTU) system integrator.
The HomePNA Alliance today announced that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has standardized the HomePNA 3.1 multimedia home networking specification. The Alliance said that Recommendation G9954 (01/2007) makes HomePNA the only "internationally standardized existing-wire home networking technology".
HomePNA 3.1 enables service providers to offer high-speed, triple-play Internet services over both phone wires and coaxial cables at speeds up to 320 Mbps.
