HomePlug alliance vies with IEEE over powerline spec

Kurt Scherf, vice president of research at Dallas-based Parks Associates, said the HomePlug reorganization was undertaken with the IEEE specifically in mind "since everyone at the alliance I've talked to privately feels they want to be in the lead. They really want to be able to take control of the standards process, and having an 800-pound gorilla like Intel on board really helps."

Scherf said many alliance members are also IEEE members, and are willing to participate with P1901. However, "a lot of them legitimately wonder about what kind of representation the utility service providers and network service partners have within IEEE."
