HomePNA 3.1 operates over coax cable as well as phone wires and also provides multi-spectrum operation, adding VDSL coexistence to the ADSL, POTS and broadcast TV channel spectrum coexistence provided by the HomePNA 3.0 specification. Multi-spectrum operation also allows multiple HomePNA networks to coexist on the same wiring.

The new spec is aimed at enabling service providers to distribute triple-play IPTV, voice and Internet data services as well as other networked entertainment data in the home. The specification is available to alliance members only.
