Allion Labs' Successful Debut at CES 2015 Promoting Gigabit Home Networking (G.hn) with HomeGrid Forum

As the first Accredited Test House of the HomeGrid Forum (HGF) based in Asia, Allion Labs,Inc. (Allion) has joined forces with HGF to promote Gigabit home networking (G.hn) technology at CES 2015.

HGF is an industry alliance promoting next-generation wired networking technology, with a membership that includes some of the world’s largest service providers, system manufactures, and chipset companies. For the first time ever, smart TVs and Wi-Fi routers with embedded G.hn are on display at the CES booth. Other exciting demos feature multi-vendor interoperability within the three main G.hn system types (power lines, coaxial cables and telephone lines), a large-scale network with multiple TVs running multiple high-definition videos over a G.hn power line.

"We are proud to cooperate with HGF to join this event. G.hn technology is a set of wired networking protocols allowing signal transmission over home power lines, coaxial cables, and telephone lines. G.hn possesses the advantages of easy arrangement of wires and does not rely on or interfere with existing home networking technology. Therefore, this year we can see many medium and large-scale telecom companies and service providers are interested in G.hn technology“; says Mark Lai, Global Technical VP of Allion.

As G.hn has been significantly growing in momentum in recent months, particularly amongst Asian service providers and manufacturers, Allion is ready to provide these clients with comprehensive technical consulting, validation testing, and application process support, as HGF’s first Accredited Test House in Asia.
