HomeGrid Forum, has announced the formation of a Clean Tech Working Group to support technology innovations in next-generation home networking products. This announcement illustrates how HomeGrid Forum is thinking way beyond the obvious of the wired home network, and how the the wired home network can extend into other wired infrastructures outside the home.
Seven leading organizations have joined HomeGrid Forum and the new working group including Future Shop (Best Buy Canada), Offsetters Clean Technologies, BC Hydro, BC Transmission Corporation, the University of British Columbia, British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and Corinex Communications Corporation. The working group will be chaired by Corinex.
“The adoption of G.hn as a consistent telecommunications standard, on the customer side, will unify the delivery of content and the integration of devices over any wire — coax cable, phone, and power lines — creating new opportunities for technology innovation that will enable service providers to deploy new offerings such as IPTV, home automation, home security products, and energy management,” says Peter Sobotka of Corinex.
The Clean Tech Working Group will evaluate new G.hn-based products for their ability to enable environmental sustainability and economic development. In addition, the group will advocate for the development of this unified platform for the wired home network and help guide HomeGrid Forum member companies in the delivery of products that support the Clean Tech ethos.
