Beaverton, US, 01 June 2021: Communication solutions provider, albis-elcon, has become the newest HomeGrid Forum member. albis-elcon’s membership follows the recent launch of HomeGrid Forum’s new GiGAWire™ certification program for broadband access products. The program, created in partnership with the GiGAWire Alliance, will speed up the innovation of broadband access technologies and further highlight the importance of G.hn technology.
Service providers can leverage G.hn technology through existing wires to cost-effectively provide last mile infrastructure in areas where optical fiber cannot be deployed all the way to the customer premises. G.hn deployment options are capitalizing on complementary architectures to extend fiber networks with phoneline and coax-based Point-to-Point (P2P) and Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) infrastructure and topologies. Deployments are serving business and residential Multi-Dwelling Units (MDUs), Multi-Tenant Units (MTUs), Single Family Units (SFUs), and free-standing commercial buildings with multi-gigabit services.
The addition of albis-elcon brings knowledge and expertise to the HomeGrid Forum community of service providers, technology manufacturers, and system vendors that will further extend G.hn innovation to broadband access technologies. With more than 15 million installed devices globally, albis-elcon supplies communication service providers with systems for fiber and copper networking – enabling broadband network deployment, IP network migration and Internet TV distribution.
“We are already actively supporting service providers in their deployments with our Business Access product series that provides extremely versatile and high-performance network elements. When designing next generation access networks, we identified G.hn as a game-changing technology for broadband access scenarios, hence we are proud to join the HomeGrid Forum and the GiGAWire™ certification program to enhance our product portfolio,” said Werner Neubauer, CEO of albis-elcon.
“albis-elcon has joined at an exciting, but critical, time for HomeGrid Forum, with consumer demand for fast internet speeds soaring and a real industry need for interoperable and standards-compliant high-performing networking solutions,” said Livia Rosu, President of HomeGrid Forum. “albis-elcon will be crucial to our mission of continual G.hn innovation, by participating in our newest certification program and working with us to further accelerate interoperable multi-vendor deployments. The expertise albis-elcon brings to HomeGrid Forum will be a huge benefit to our efforts to make carrier grade equipment available for fiber to the extension point (FTTep) topologies.”
System vendors interested in being a pioneer of broadband access technologies and furthering this and other innovative uses of G.hn technology should visit the HomeGrid Forum website to learn more about our certification programs and to join and apply for membership.
