G.hn Momentum Builds at CES with Live Demos and New Member Announcements

Korea’s KT Corporation joins HomeGrid, adding to the global success of G.hn. The HomeGrid CES Booth showcases multi-vendor interoperability and large-scale network demonstrations

CES, Las Vegas, January 06, 2015

News highlights:

  • HomeGrid Forum showcases G.hn networks with multi-vendor Interoperability, large-scale networks, operation in multi-dwelling units and a PLC-based  Smart Home demonstration
  • KT Corporation (formerly known as Korea Telecom) joins HomeGrid Forum as global momentum for G.hn grows
  • New Accredited Test House, ALLION Labs, is open for business


HomeGrid Forum will be unveiling the latest developments in G.hn technology at Booth 21624 in the South Hall at CES this week, including demonstrations of consumer devices with built-in G.hn handling Ultra-HD services, and multi-vendor solutions for gigabit home networking. The demonstrations are designed to show that users can connect any device, anywhere in the home, over any wire using the fastest and most reliable networking technology available today.

HomeGrid Forum has also announced that KT Corporation (formerly Korea Telecom) has joined as a Promoter member, adding significantly to the growing momentum from Asian service providers, manufacturers and test houses that are pioneering G.hn applications in that region.

For the first time, smart TVs and Wi-Fi routers with embedded G.hn will be on display.  Other exciting new demonstrations include multi-vendor interoperability within each of the three main G.hn system types (powerline, phoneline and coax), a large-scale network with multiple TVs running multiple videos over G.hn powerline, and a PLC Smart Home system. In addition, HomeGrid members will be showing how G.hn copes with ‘Neighboring Networks’ interference in multi-dwelling units (MDUs), a key differentiator between G.hn and other home networking technologies.

ALLION Labs, HomeGrid Forum’s newly appointed Authorized Test House, will also be present at the HomeGrid Forum Booth to provide information regarding their HomeGrid Forum certification services.

G.hn networks can operate over any wire type, are simple and easy to install, and support the latest developments in high bit-rate applications, in particular reliably transporting multiple streams of 3D, 4K and Ultra-HD video around the home.

As an industry alliance, HomeGrid Forum represents many companies that are developing G.hn solutions. Participants in the booth this year include ALLION Labs, ARRIS, Comtrend, Marvell, Sendtek, Sigma Designs, Ubiquoss and Xingtera.

“We are delighted with everything we have to show and announce this year at CES,” says Don Gardenhire, HomeGrid Forum President. “With significant new member announcements such as Korea Telecom, and the powerful demonstrations we have this year, everything points to where G.hn is going through 2015. We expect to be very busy with visitors at this year’s show!”
