The HomeGrid Forum is showcasing G.hn technology to potential

deployment throughout the region. HomeGrid Forum supporters are out
in force demonstrating the best in G.hn at the event, including
system vendors AcBel, Arcadyan, CHIMEI, Comtrend, SAMPO, TATUNG, TTI
and ZyXEL, and chipset vendors Marvell, Metanoia and Sigma Designs. 
Asian service providers are showing increasing interest as the
technology reaches maturity, following the system certification
milestone passed last month by Taiwanese company, Comtrend. Among the
Asian operators currently trialing G.hn is Taiwan's own Chunghwa
Dr Hsien-Tang Ko, Director General of the Industry Development
Augmentation Division of the Taiwanese Institute for Information
Industry and a key supporter of G.hn, sums up the potential of the
technology: "G.hn is designed to be the in-home backbone for
networking gateways and IP Set Top Boxes together for IPTV multi-room
digital video recorder services, Wi-Fi access points, and home
automation devices. G.hn technology can help service providers to
realize the advent of the digital smart home, undoubtedly fulfilling
their vision of digital convergence services anywhere in the home." 
G.hn provides home networking over any existing wires in the home
with excellent quality of service. It creates a high performance
network backbone throughout the home, enabling seamless, high
definition IPTV and multi-media distribution. 
"The HomeGrid Forum continues to meet our commitments. Our first
system certification in September marked an important moment for our
Asian G.hn efforts," said HomeGrid Forum President, John Egan. "We
have the technology, it is certified, multi-sourced and the best on
the market. Now, with systems certifications starting, we can
showcase a strong and wide range of products available to service
providers and consumers. We have HomeGrid Forum certified systems.
The full eco-system of multi-source G.hn is poised for deployment
today and, with our full Ultra-HD IPTV streaming over G.hn, we're
showing it's now ready for tomorrow. Service providers, retailers and
consumers can trust in HomeGrid Forum "Certified" G.hn products to
provide satisfaction and performance." 
The Broadband Taiwan Event will take place from the 8th to the 11th
of October 2013, in the TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taipei,
Taiwan. HomeGrid Forum will be exhibiting at booth No.513.
