IPTV drives HomePNA networking growth
November 14, 2006
New developments in Home Phoneline Networking (HomePNA) technology will give the market a boost and help it become a viable player in deployment of home video networks, according to researcher In-Stat.
Migration is under way from the lower-speed HomePNA 2 to HomePNA 3, and worldwide shipments for HomePNA 3 will exceed 200 percent growth in 2007, the high-tech market research firm says.
Recent In-Stat research has found:
The underlying drivers for residential entertainment video distribution networking are the whole-home DVR and efforts to avoid installing new cabling. The number of whole-home DVR installations is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 100 percent from 2006 to 2008. Most service operators are keeping their options open and optimally want their services to run over at least two mediums — powerline and coax, or phoneline and coax.
