At CES Asia earlier this month, HomeGrid Forum showcased G.hn as the most versatile in-home technology, through demos of a wide range of applications over every wired medium in the home. By Donna Yasay, President, HomeGrid Forum
Earlier this month we exhibited at CES Asia for the first time in HomeGrid Forum’s history. The show was a great success and we were really impressed by the amount of traffic the show received on all three days – even the last day was full of delegates and felt very productive.

At Broadband World Forum in London this week, HomeGrid Forum is hosting the first live demonstration of a new powerline test plan- TR-208
Finding the right test plan that compares ‘like for like’ set-ups with different products is hard to come by. Over the last few months we have seen many test plans being used to compare home networking technologies and the results vary considerably, depending very much on the choice of set-up.
A year ago we announced that mainland China and Taiwan had harmonized on G.hn as their ‘smart home’ wireline home network technology – a significant milestone in a massive market.
