April 16, 2008 -- HomePNA announced that it has certified an additional nine products and a 320-Mbit/sec chipset reference design as HomePNA 3.1 compliant, increasing the number of certified products to 26. The new certifications include ADSL and VDSL residential gateways, set-top boxes, Ethernet to HomePNA 3.1 bridges, and an iNID outdoor residential gateway/indoor Wi-Fi access point.

Newly certified products and designs include: 2Wire's iNID VDSL2 outdoor residential gateway and indoor Wi-Fi access point units; D-Link's ADSL2+ residential gateway; SMC's VDSL2 residential Gateway and Ethernet to HomePNA 3.1 coax bridge; Scientific Atlanta's IP set-top box and IP set-top box with DVR; SendTek's Ethernet to HomePNA 3.1 phone wire bridge and coax MII module; and CopperGate's 320 Mbit/sec Ethernet to HomePNA 3.1 bridge reference design.

The HomePNA 3.1 standard specifies high user throughput, support for remote management and diagnostics, and guaranteed quality of service (QoS) to eliminate collisions between data streams. HomePNA 3.1 certified products enable service providers to reliably distribute multimedia triple play services including, high definition television (HDTV) as well standard definition television, video on demand (VoD), voice over IP (VoIP), and Internet data over customers' existing coax cables and phone wires. The technology can help service providers to reduce installation costs, while utilizing remote management and diagnostics to reduce operational expenses, and end-user costs through unified billing.

HomePNA 3.1 was standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as G.9954 in January 2007. It is the only existing-wire multimedia home networking technology supported by an international standard, claims HomePNA.
