Five products from four vendors over three wired media…now that’s success!
At this year’s Computex press conference and seminar we made one of our most important and exciting announcements of this year – the fact that we now have a substantial body of products that have achieved G.hn certification!
Taipei, Taiwan was once again host to our major Asia show of the year – Computex 2015 - in the first week of June. It was a race to be ready on time, but we not only had an even bigger show of demonstrations and participants than even at CES2015, but we also held a press conference and seminar at which we were able to announce our first significant tranche of G.hn certifications. This is a significant step forward for the Forum and all our members!
Our latest Plugfest on May 14th at Allion Labs in Taipei has got everyone very excited – but why should it matter?
We have had several plugfests before but this is the first one where we are offering members the opportunity to do some preliminary testing of their G.hn prototypes and final products against HGF G.hn Reference Products and previously certified products. This pre-testing will provide early results for those seeking certification and will expedite the certification process for their products.
Hisilicon is proud to present its own vision of a total home networking solution of the 4K era harnessing Hisilicon chipsets in the 23rd China Content Broadcasting Network Exhibition (CCBN) 2015, which will take place in Beijing from 3/26 to 3/28, 2015.
As new HomeGrid Forum President, I’d like to take this opportunity to say how excited I am to take on this position, tell you a little about myself, and provide a few thoughts about where I want to take HomeGrid Forum over the next year.
The HomeGrid Forum umbrella covers both G.hn and HomePNA technologies and both are ITU-T approved recommendations. When the HomePNA Alliance and HomeGrid Forum merged, HomeGrid adopted the certification methodology and tests that had already been defined and executed by HomePNA Alliance. This blog seeks to provide some insights into the process for readers who are not familiar with the HomePNA certification process.
