Broadcom's announcement that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Gigle Networks is a sign that additional critical mass is coming to the wired home network.
While this site is focused on the G.hn standard, it's important to look peripherally to M & A activity such as this.
Broadcom buying Gigle Networks’ technology will dramatically expand Broadcom’s intellectual property and enable the design of more highly integrated SoCs that allow whole-home network coverage in a wide variety of global deployment scenarios.
In acquiring Gigle, look for Broadcom will be able to provide additional functionality to its customers in broadband home segments including set-top box, broadband carrier access and wireless router.
