HomePNA certifies products from Motorola, SA
HomePNA has certified 13 products and eight reference designs as interoperable with the HomePNA 3.1 multimedia home networking spec.
Motorola Inc., Scientific Atlanta and Sendtek Corp. earned product certification for set-top boxes, routers, HomePNA-to-Ethernet bridges and multi-tenant unit (MTU) equipment, and CopperGate Communications won reference design certification at HomePNA’s spring Plugfest, hosted by Alcatel-Lucent.
"A supply of certified products helps service providers transform existing home wiring into multimedia networks to carry many broadband services, including AT&T U-verse TV, Internet access and voice services," said Joyce Putscher, principal analyst, In-Stat.
HomePNA technology facilitates interoperability and convergence of all networked entertainment and computer Internet protocol (IP) data devices in the home over existing coax and phone wires, the company said.
