HomePNA to Participate in CES Track Session

The HomePhoneline Networking Alliance will be presenting at CES as part of the Networked Interoperability Track.

Rich Nesin, President of the Home Phoneline Networking Alliance (HomePNA), will present "Wired for Entertainment: HomePNA™ 3.0" during the Networked Interoperability Track Session at CES. The presentation will be given by Rich Nesin, President of Home PNA on Friday, January 9th in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.


The presentation will discuss how HomePNA is generating industry "pull" and the hurdles that must be overcome for multimedia phoneline networking to go mainstream. The session will discuss what this means to DSL providers, when HomePNA technology will ship in products and how HomePNA technology delivers a "backbone" to support wireless networking extensions.

The Home Phoneline Networking Alliance (HomePNA™), was a pioneer in 1999 with its specification that allowed multi -vendor home networks to run at Ethernet speeds over existing home phone wires without interrupting telephone service. Now the organization has a third -generation specification targeted at multimedia home networking with the speed and QoS to carry multiple streams of "triple play" voice, broadband Internet access, streaming and broadcast video data, including high -definition television (HDTV) over phone lines.
