GiGAWire Alliance, Home Grid Forum merger 'new force' in broadband access tech development

The GiGAWire Alliance and the Home Grid Forum are merging, in a move designed to create what they say is a new force in broadband access technology development.

Both organisations also say the newly merged organisation will be structured to work across a widening portfolio covering IoT, connected cars, smart grid, light communications (Li-Fi) and GiGAWire MDU, and will strengthen the development of broadband access technology.

The planned merger was jointly announced by the two organisations at the Broadband World Forum held last week in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

“Both organisations have a lot in common and a strong focus on enabling service providers’ deployments with advanced solutions and ensuring a robust and versatile backbone, based on ITU-T G.hn technology - designed to work on any wire, designed to fit any network topology” said Livia Rosu, marketing chair & board member at HomeGrid Forum & GiGAWire Alliance.

“From the HomeGrid Forum side we will provide continued support to GiGAWire members on system certification through strict compliance and interoperability testing for service providers’ smoother and faster deployment.

“As G.hn technology is at the core of systems for in-home and broadband access deployments (in MDUs and last mile network segments), the new organisation automatically ensures end-to-end coexistence and interoperability at all levels.”

The newly merged organisation will be structured to provide marketing and technical support to each of the market segments - Home Networking, IoT, Connected Cars, Smart Grid, Light Communications (Li-Fi) and GiGAWire MDU.

The GiGAWire Alliance was created in 2017 as a unified industry effort by service providers, equipment vendors and silicon vendors to create an ecosystem that ensured continuous improvement of broadband access network solutions based on ITU-T G.hn standards.

GiGAWire says its work has been dedicated to enabling next-generation access networks that deliver faster-than-gigabit broadband services, with a focus on helping service providers to leverage existing in-building copper infrastructure (phone lines, UTP cables and coaxial cables) to deploy broadband networks at a fraction of the cost of traditional FTTH deployments.

GiGAWire extended applicability of G.hn to provide broadband access to the premises environment, including large apartment complexes, single family units and office buildings – and provided crosstalk mitigation and auto pairing features to support multiple users using bundle cable.

“The GiGAWire solution can easily improve Internet connection speed up to 10 times over VDSL in the premises environment where optical fiber cannot be deployed for technical or historical preservation reasons,” said Rosu.

“Adding GiGAWire’s experience and access deployment knowledge to the work of the HomeGrid Forum will give the combined organisation massive potential as the industry moves forward,” Rosu concluded.
