HomePNA Slated for IP Possibilities, NAB's Telecom 2008 This Month

Alliance president Rich Nesin will address IPTV installation at NABShow in Las Vegas

San Ramon, CA - April 7, 2008

HomePNA announced today it will exhibit at IP Possibilities Conference & Expo in Chicago April 7 to 11, and address "Lessons Learned About Installing Home Networks for triple-play IPTV Services" at NABShow's Telecom 2008 in Las Vegas April 14. HomePNA 3.1 home networking technology is being deployed today by a rapidly growing number of telcos for IPTV. It enables service providers to distribute high-speed, triple-play services -- IPTV, VoIP and data -- over both phone wires and coaxial cables in the home at speeds up to 320 megabits per second with guaranteed QoS.

Focusing on rural telephone companies, IP Possibilities attendees learn how to evaluate the next generation of IP technologies from a financial, technical, and operational perspective. Participants will learn how to identify areas of growth, improve their customers' experience, ensure a smooth transition, and increase their profitability. Attendees can discuss HomePNA and explore its benefits during show hours, April 9 and 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

"I'm excited to share real IPTV deployment practices and issues at NAB's Telecom 2008 conference. HomePNA members have a broad perspective and hands-on experience with installing multimedia home networks to deliver TelcoTV and other IP services," said HomePNA President Rich Nesin of member company CopperGate Communications. He and Roger Vaughn of member company AFL Telecommunications will present those experiences and recommendations during the session "Lessons Learned About Installing Home Networks for triple-play IPTV Services" April 14 at 9 a.m.
