LAN & WAN News

HomePlug Logo The HomePlug Alliance is throwing its support behind an IEEE group drafting a standard for hybrid home networks.

The group is backing the IEEE P1905 working group, which is trying to hammer out a standard for networks combining IEEE P1901 / HomePlug AV, Wi Fi, MoCA and Ethernet.

IEEE P1905 is aimed at adding a layer over the other standards to allow packets to travel among all the network types. Network setup would also be simplified by providing common setup procedures for adding devices, establishing secure links, implementing QoS and managing the network.

Companies in the working group include Broadcom, Cisco Systems, France Telecom, Qualcomm Atheros, Ralink, Sigma Designs, SPiDCOM Technologies and STMicroelectronics.

No time frame has been set for release of the standard.
