Marvell will join BT, Intel, Lantiq, Sigma Designs, Telefonica, Texas Instruments and others on the board.  Marvell’s addition to the board reinforces the growing importance and broadening adoption of G.hn as the next-generation global standard for wired home networking. 

But Wait.  I Thought They Were Focused on Mobility....

A quick visit to Marvell's site has the company positioned as a mobile lifestyle semiconductor company.  So if life is mobile, why are they looking to the wired home network and specifically the G.hn standard?

Take a clue from an announcement at CES, introducing the first media server with built-in Powerline Communications (PLC) network connectivity.

Their technology provides an integrated home media server that offers developers and users a new way to connect devices across the home network and share personal media and cloud-based content – including photos, video, music and games – using existing electrical wiring already available in the home. 

The Shift to Connected Mobile Experiences. Translation:  Real Mobility Starts with infrastructure from a G.hn based Wired Home Network :)

Marvell is aiming to deliver a comprehensive total solution platform for ‘connected mobile’ experiences.  G.hn technology complements Marvell’s existing total connectivity solutions already being deployed in the home and access markets, including Wi-Fi, Ethernet and cellular.

Keep Marvell on your radar for G.hn technology to come.  The ecosystem continues to grow.
