G.hn market adoption takes major step forward as new products achieve HomeGrid Forum certification

HomeGrid Forum and Allion Labs, the organisation’s Accredited Testing House in Taiwan, has announced that a new tranche of products has passed the testing required to be awarded HomeGrid Forum’s coveted G.hn Certification.

The range of products and number of vendors achieving certification are a testament to HomeGrid’s approach that ensures certified G.hn products are multi-vendor interoperable even with multi-vendor silicon.
These vendors are ARRIS Group Inc., Comtrend Corporation, Prime Electronics and Satellitics Inc., and SendTek Corporation, with a wide range of devices across multiple media.

4 vendors applied for Product Logo Certification and submitted a number of devices for certification testing. The successful products are the ARRIS SURFboard SBX-1000P Extender, Comtrend’s G.hn Powerline Ethernet + PoE Adapter, Prime Electronics’ G.hn Cable to Ethernet Bridge and two products from SendTek: a G.hn Coax WiFi Gb Ethernet bridge and a G.hn Phoneline WiFi Gb Ethernet Bridge.

The range of certified products announced today illustrates one of the key G.hn differentiators –  it operates over any in-home wire type. HomeGrid has now certified products for phoneline, wireline and coax, also providing a bridge to WiFi and CATV, thus providing a wide range of backbone home networking choices at Gigabit speeds.

Abdul Khan, chairman of HomeGrid’s Compliance & Interoperability Working Group, said: “Our members are being true to their word, bringing their products for testing and achieving certifications. No other technology has achieved this level and breadth of certifications, from multi-source silicon to end user products, so quickly in its evolution!”

G.hn networks are easy to install and support the latest high bandwidth service innovations, for example enabling the flawless room to room distribution of Ultra-HD video. From HD to Ultra HD Video, from 3D to 4K Video – G.hn is the any wire answer.
