G.hn is ITU-T Recommendations defining the next generation home AV network standard for distribution of Internet Protocol (IP) content across existing AC power lines, coax cables and phone lines. G.hn enables consumers to access, store, and share a wide variety of content around the home without having to install new wiring. This includes broadband data, HD programs, video-on-demand (VOD), multi-room HD DVR recordings, voice over IP (VoIP), and streaming of HD video, music, and photos.
G.hn Recommendation is composed of these core components:
This universal standard delivers the ultimate in performance (up to 3 Gbps if G.hn is used simultaneously over multiple media) with the highest level of interconnectivity among devices in the home. It is also an excellent technology for enabling access in MDU, Hospitality and Broadband Access.
Sigma Designs, is one of the leading proponents of G.hn and is active in the G.hn working groups. Sigma Designs is considered one of the leaders in G.hn due to their extensive and proven expertise in deploying HomePNA® and HomePlug® AV solutions that use existing coaxial cables, phone lines, and AC power lines in the home.
Sigma Designs CG5210 G.hn chipsets support HomePNA® (ITU-T Recommednation G.9954) and coexist with HomePlug® AV. Every service provider who uses G.hn will have a smooth and seamless migration from these legacy deployments to the next generation G.hn.
G.hn chipsets will be integrated into any home entertainment devices as Ethernet is today. This universal standard delivers the ultimate in performance with the highest level of interconnectivity among devices in the home (in homes throughout the world)! G.hn chips will be integrated into:
G.hn is perfect for virtually every kind of home entertainment network including IPTV, Triple Play, Whole Home DVR and more. It is also an excellent technology for access in MDU and hospitality and Broadband Access applications.
The CG5200 series, G.hn (G.9960/1/2/3/4) family of chipsets with MIMO capability enables a complete self install home entertainment network for distribution of Triple play and IPTV over all existing wires in the home; coax, phoneline and powerline.
