HomePNA Tests Produce Certified Products for End-to-end Delivery of IP Services in the Home

Actiontec, 2Wire, Cameo and Motorola plugfest certifications raise total HomePNA certifications to 17 products, 8 reference designs

San Ramon, CA - September 12, 2007

HomePNA today announced four new HomePNA 3.1 certified home networking products, providing for end-to-end delivery of Internet Protocol (IP) services over HomePNA within the home. Triple-play IP services include IPTV, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and data.

Actiontec and Cameo each certified Ethernet to HomePNA 3.1 bridges and 2Wire and Motorola certified residential gateways at HomePNA's summer plugfest, hosted by member Sunrise Telecom in San Jose, Calif.

Certified interoperable products assure service providers that the products they deploy comply with HomePNA requirements to provide reliable high-speed, multimedia home networking over phone wires and coaxial cables with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). HomePNA now has 17 certified products and eight certified references designs from seven vendors.

"HomePNA's certified home network components earn credibility with service providers intent on capturing the nearly two-thirds of consumers who want to network their TVs with the Internet and other consumer devices, according to our recent report, 'Home Networking: In Search of a Killer Connection,'" said Steve Rago, principal analyst, networking/optical communications for iSuppli. "Telcos must provide reliable, valueadded multimedia IP services like IPTV to win subscribers from established cable and satellite television providers, differentiating their offerings with quality, features and cost-effective triple- or quad-play service packages for consumers."

HomePNA certification is limited to HomePNA member products and reference designs. Products and reference designs were compliance tested and also interoperability tested both with a golden node and other members' products to earn HomePNA certification.

Certified products are listed and identified with a HomePNA logo at
