Supporting The Gh.n Wireline Networking Standard

The Universal Powerline Association (UPA) and the HomeGrid Forum have signed a memorandum of understanding for the joint research, development, and commercialization of networking technologies and products ensuring coexistence, interoperability, and specification compliance.

Under the multi-year memorandum, the UPA and HomeGrid Forum commit to cooperating on the creation of a single MAC and PHY protocol for transporting multimedia across a home's existing wiring.

In addition to aligning with the UPA, HomeGrid Forum has come to an agreement with the Consumer Electronics Powerline Communication Alliance (CEPCA) and HomePNA Alliance.
