HomePlug moving to Certify IEEE 1901 powerline products

The HomePlug Powerline Alliance today announced its intent to certify IEEE 1901 products. The certification will be based on the HomePlug Alliance’s recently merged proposal.

The merged proposal [related story] recently submitted by HomePlug and Panasonic to the IEEE P1901 Work Group offers the efficiency of a single MAC and the flexibility to support both the HD-PLC and HomePlug AV PHYs.

It is unclear whether the merged proposal includes interoperability and coexistence with powerline products based on DS2's competing technology. A HomePlug Alliance spokesperson directed a request for clarification of this issue to the chair of the IEEE P 1901 work group, who did not respond.

Panasonic joins with HomePlug for IEEE BPL standard

The HomePlug Powerline Alliance today announced that HomePlug and Panasonic have merged their technical submissions to the IEEE P1901 Work Group for Broadband over Powerline (BPL) to submit a joint proposal.

The merged submission offers a single MAC to support both the HD-PLC and HomePlug AV PHYs. As a result, future products based on the merged P1901 proposal can be fully interoperable with existing HomePlug AV and Panasonic HD-PLC products.

The IEEE P1901 group is developing a communications standard for high-speed powerline devices. The standard will be usable by all classes of high-speed BPL products, including networking devices for the first-mile/last-mile connection to broadband services and consumer products providing in-home networking and multimedia distribution. The IEEE P1901 Work Group is expected to approve a proposal later this year.
