Home users can enjoy high-speed internet for online gaming, Ultra high definition 4K (UHD) video providing a superior image quality and high quality Voice and Video-over-IP calls.

Kevin Wen, President of D-Link Europe, commented, “Our partnership with Sigma has enabled us to quickly design and develop products that incorporate G.hn technology. Users can now easily transfer large files, and enjoy the benefit of uninterrupted 4K media streaming and online gaming.”
Sigma’s CG5300 family enables large scale networks simultaneously running a high number of 4K video streams and guaranteed whole-home DVR coverage. With CG5300, end-users enjoy unprecedented convenience and flexibility because every power outlet, coaxial outlet and phone jack in-home becomes a network connectivity point on the same mesh network providing fast, reliable speeds.
The CG5300 G.hn chipsets are optimized for 4K video and IPTV distribution and advanced multicast systems. The chipsets were designed to be easily embedded within a broad range of products such as:
- Connected TVs
- Thin Client Set-Top Boxes
- OTT Gateways
- Blu-ray DVD
“G.hn is the natural backbone for the home. It is based on a home’s existing wiring and takes the traffic load off of the often over-extended wireless infrastructure to ensure consumers have an easy to install solution to take advantage of the exciting new 4K content and the use of multiple screens,” said Nadav Katsir, vice president home connectivity for Sigma Designs.
