HomeGrid Forum today announced that Telebyte, a leading test solution provider for G.fast and manufacturer of UPLC splitters, has joined as its newest member. As cross-industry cooperation is key for interoperability and standardization across the board, having Telebyte as a member will enable the Forum to strengthen its industry ties.

“Telebyte joining the HomeGrid Forum is a significant moment for us, highlighting the need for industry collaboration as interoperability remains a priority for manufacturers, service providers and industry bodies alike,” said Dr. Len Dauphinee, HomeGrid Forum President. “In addition, it illustrates the broad appeal of the Forum and the progress that G.hn is making within the industry.  This is a testament to the great work our members undertake.”

Telebyte is a recognized leader in G.fast physical layer testing, and also provides test equipment  for powerline devices, including G.hn. The Telebyte solution is completely vendor agnostic, and uses the TR-208 Performance Test Plan – an internationally recognized standard from the Broadband Forum that can be used for third party testing.

Working across multiple vendors, Telebyte is a driving force for industry interoperability, and is an active member of the Broadband Forum and the DSL Consortium at UNH-IOL.  It also manufactures standard UPLC splitters – which allow a like-for-like comparison of different products.

Michael Breneisen, President of Telebyte commented: “Telebyte has gone from strength to strength this year – joining the HomeGrid Forum will enable us to further align our interoperability goals and ambitions within the industry. We believe this will be of benefit to our customers now, and in the future, as we continue to push for the highest standard in networking technologies, including G.hn.”
