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!
We confirmed that five products had achieved certification and – most importantly – that the products operate over several wired media. This follows the first certification for Comtrend earlier in the year, making a total of six G.hn certified products.
I cannot stress enough how important this is in illustrating one of our key G.hn differentiators - that the technology operates over any in-home wire type. HomeGrid now has certified products for phoneline, wireline and coax, also providing a bridge to WiFi and CATV, thus providing a wide range of backbone home networking choices at Gigabit speeds.
No other technology has achieved this level and breadth of certifications, from multi-source silicon to end user products, so quickly in its evolution!
Our congratulations go to ARRIS Group Inc., Comtrend Corporation, Prime Electronics and Satellitics Inc., and SendTek Corporation.
