320 Mbps Home Networking Specification Released
HomePNA 3.1, our latest home networking specification released in December 2006, increases data rates over existing home wiring up to 320 Mbps. The HomePNA 3.1 specification helps service providers to simultaneously distribute triple-play IPTV, voice and Internet data services as well as other networked entertainment data throughout the home. HomePNA also released the HomePNA 3.1 certification specification in December 2006 to support certification testing of members products.
Providing Multi-Spectrum Operation
HomePNA 3.1, operating over coax cables as well as phone wires, provides multi-spectrum operation, and adds VDSL coexistence to the ADSL, POTS and broadcast TV channel spectrum coexistence provided by the HomePNA 3.0 specification. Multi-spectrum operation also allows multiple HomePNA networks to coexist on the same wiring.
Offering Standardized Security and Stability
HomePNA 3.1 enhances the HomePNA 3.0 specification, which was standardized by the ITU in May 2005. The ITU, which operates under the auspices of the United Nations, is one of the world's premier standards organizations. The standardization provides access to the technology, security and stability to service providers and manufacturers who deploy HomePNA-enabled products and services to the market.
