HomePNA is dedicated to protecting the needs of service providers and consumers and increasing competition among vendors by supporting the creation and implementation of uniform, industry-standard conformance test procedures and processes, which assure the interoperability of home networking products and services.
How Interoperability Is Assured
To assure interoperability, HomePNA implements a rigorous, two-stage testing methodology. Member companies must:
- Download the members' only HomePNA certification specification (Member Area) and perform extensive testing to verify product functionality and conformance to the HomePNA specifications.
- Submit an affidavit (Member Area) to HomePNA stating that certification testing was completed and that the product meets HomePNA's requirements.
- Undergo testing by HomePNA to verify compliance to critical parameters of the certification specification and controlled interoperability testing sessions with other HomePNA-certified products.
HomePNA's "Seal of Approval"
Once products pass the certification process, products receive HomePNA's official "seal of approval". Only products that have successfully passed this process can use the HomePNA logo and will be listed with the = HomePNA Certified symbol on the Member Products page.
Additional certification information is available via the HomePNA Member Area.
