DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qfdwx7/the_home) has announced the addition of the "The Home Networking Industry " report to their offering.
"The Home Networking Industry" report is about the business of powerline home networking technology that is intended to provide flicker-free OTT services and smooth operation to other high bandwidth apps.
A surge in popular demand for Wi-Fi bandwidth and coverage in and around the home has stemmed from the increasing use of Wi-Fi devices like TVs, phones and tablets. The strain isn't easing - internet-hungry apps such as 4K TV (including the new iPhone with 4K recording capability) will cause further demand for upload bandwidth as well as downloads.
True, in many cases, Wi-Fi home networks set up by the broadband supplier work sufficiently; but what about problems like Wi-Fi deadspots in awkward parts of the house? Or from ordinary people who simply want to sit out on their porch or patio expecting to watch 4K on a mobile device or outdoor TV?
Two types of powerline home networking technologies have emerged that can solve these problems. One is called G.hn (promoted by the HomeGrid Forum) and the other is HomePlug AV2 (promoted by the HomePlug Alliance).
Over 62 pages, "The Home Networking Industry 2015" report:
1) Explains the rivalry and background behind the two camps, one backed by chipmakers Broadcom and Qualcomm, the other started by Intel but now championed by technology companies such as Marvell, Sigma Designs, Comtrend, etc.;
2) Reveals the results from our own tests on G.hn and HomePlug AV2 products conducted in two different test homes;
3) Makes recommendations and conclusions arising from the tests;
4) Provides analysis and reports of recent events and trends in 2015 in the home networking market.
This survey is essential reading for those already interested in the powerline home network industry or for those needing to gain an understanding.
