The home networking industry today is at a cross roads. The industry needs a solution to provide a network that extends throughout the home for the proliferation of HD video content. ? This extended home network is not available today and the main issue is there is no one solution that extends out to all parts of the home with some level of QoS to meet acceptable viewing expectations. ? Wired and wireless home networking technologies currently do not meet the baseline requirements for transporting multiple streams of HD content throughout the home. ? Wired technologies like powerline, phoneline and coax are seen as the best way to distribute this HD content but there is a lot of work that needs to happen to develop a solution that will meet service providersâ?? needs and end usersâ?? expectations. ? The ITU and its G.Hn group is one standards organization that is leading the way in developing a specification that would unify a fragmented industry â?? but will it be enough to solve the coverage issues? ? This presentation will discuss the current state of the home networking market and the hurdles that need to be addressed in finding the right solution.
