HomeGrid Forum may not be a household name, but if you are looking to build-out the best home network imaginable then you may want to check out their technology. HomeGrid Forum is made up of many major companies from around the world such as AT&T, Intel, Best Buy, Motorola, Marvell, and others.
Using G.hn, a home networking standard that you can learn more about from Wikipedia, you can stream up to 1 gigabit of data across any wire in your home. That means everything now becomes a potential network connection – power outlets, coax connectors, and phone jacks – creating a whole-home smart grid.
Products are now coming to market that will make all of this work. Consumers just need to look for products with the HomeGrid Forum logo on them to know that they are compatible. Products from different vendors and even different chipset makers will all work flawlessly together. HomeGrid Forums promises this new technology will be priced to compete with current solutions already on the market. You can get more information at HomeGrid Forum and see demos of the technology in use in the video below.
