HomePNA Alliance Adds 5 New Members to Advance No-New-Wires Multimedia Home Networking

Conexant Systems Joins HomePNA Board of Directors

San Ramon, CA - September 27, 2006

HomePNA announced today that five new companies have joined the rapidly growing alliance to develop and promote the only home networking technology for the distribution of digital video, voice and data over the existing phone wires and coaxial cables. Joining Conexant are Allied Telesis Labs, Amedia Networks, and telecom equipment manufacturers FLUKE Networks and JDSU. These new members will further advance HomePNA's ecosystem of interoperable triple-play home networking solutions.

HomePNA technology leverages the ubiquitous in-home wiring infrastructure of telcos and cablecos alike to help service providers capture new revenue with easy deployment of new IP-based services.

"The alliance membership continues to grow as more and more companies discover the value in working together to promote the unique capabilities of the reliable high-speed HomePNA standard for networking entertainment data over existing home wiring," said Rich Nesin, president of HomePNA.

Conexant, a worldwide leader in semiconductor solutions for broadband communications and the digital home, will also join the HomePNA board of directors. Cyrus Namazi, vice president of marketing for Conexant's Broadband Access business, will represent the company.

HomePNA 3.0 technology, standardized by the ITU in May 2005, is multimedia home networking technology for triple-play services: entertainment data networking, VoIp and computer networking. Its unique blend of high speed, robust performance, low cost, guaranteed QoS, and the ability to operate simultaneously over both phone lines and coax cables make it uniquely suited to the needs of service providers for deploying new services.
