I am fortunate to be one of the “early adopter” test homes for emerging G.hn products, and I’m thrilled to report that I have been up and running a full G.hn-enabled home network using only powerline connectivity for all my video in my AT&T Uverse for 2 weeks now….. and running flawlessly I might add.
I have long been involved with AT&T’s analysis of home network technologies, and have evaluated all revs of HomePlug and HomePlugAV over the last 5-6 years. And using these technologies I have observed in every case that certain device locations where HPAV either could not sustain network connectivity, or the bandwidth capacity it could muster up was inadequate to deliver video in the home. (i.e., no link, or less than 3 Mbps of thruput).
This was certainly not the case with G.hn. At device locations where HomePlugAV delivered only 1-2 Mbps, G.hn delivers a thruput capacity well in excess of 100 Mbps. And that is EXACTLY what we are looking for in a“Plug and Play” network solution.
Bottom line: 3 cheers are in order.

During the recent Digital Home Summit, AT&T's Vernon Reed, Lead Member - Technical Staff at AT&T Labs in Austin was one of the keynote speakers. After his talk, he shared his insights on G.hn with me. What's interesting to note is one of the driving forces behind G.hn was the desire to move towards a customer self-instal using all three media with a common set of silicon that will enable more self-installation of more devices on the home network.
