BEAVERTON, Ore. -- The HomeGrid Forum announced today that the G.hn home networking standard has been adopted into the prestigious Catalog of Standards created by the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP). The move represents another important step forward in the acceptance of the high speed home networking standard and comes just as many companies are beginning to introduce G.hn products into their portfolios, including utilities and Service Providers.
"This is a highly significant moment in the G.hn development story," commented HomeGrid Forum president John Egan. "We are delighted that the SGIP voted to include G.hn and G.cx in its Catalog of Standards. Since inclusion in the Catalog is achieved after a membership vote which includes our industry peers and partners, as well as our competitors, it is a measure of the recognition that this high speed networking standard is achieving within the industry and of its enormous potential in the smart grid arena."
