Powerline group breaks two-year deadlock: IEEE P1901 embraces ITU's G.hn as one part of spec

Thanks to growing momentum behind a standard covering all wired home networks, an IEEE group has taken a significant step toward defining a standard for competing powerline technologies. The IEEE's P1901 working group approved last week (Dec. 19) at a meeting in Kyoto a set of baseline technologies powerline nets, breaking a two-year deadlock.

Wi-Fi dominates today used in an estimated 53 percent of networked homes in the U.S. according to Parks Associates (Dallas). By contrast, only about 19 percent use some form of wired networking other than Category 5 Ethernet cable. Powerline represents a little less than half that group.
