HomePNA announced today that three more companies have joined the HomePNA home networking alliance -- the only existing-wire home networking standard today for telco TV (IPTV) video distribution. New members D-Link Corp., Arcom Labs, Inc. and SerComm Corp. will promote HomePNA technology and deliver solutions for IPTV over coax and phone lines.

"HomePNA is one of the fastest growing home network standards in the world today," said Rich Nesin, HomePNA president. "That is why great companies like D-Link, Arcom and Sercomm have joined. They want to share in the success of HomePNA."

"In terms of chipsets/nodes over coax and phone wiring, our recently released report on home networking shows HomePNA grew at the highest rate in 2007, and that is expected to continue through 2008," said Joyce Putscher, principal analyst at market research firm In-Stat.

HomePNA technology is the highest performing home network standard today, delivering up to 320 Mbit/s of data transmission. In addition, HomePNA delivers a high quality video experience for viewers while eenabling service providers to reduce installation costs, utilize remote management and diagnostics to reduce operational expenses, and even reduce end-user costs through unified billing.
