HGI to strengthen Asian Collaborations with Special Taipei Seminar

Four day event expected to further define Smart Home market requirements

26 February 2015. HGI, the leading global organisation for publishing requirements for the digital home, will kick off its first quarterly meeting of 2015 with a special seminar for Taipei technology companies.

The information event, which will take place at the Taipei International Convention Center on Monday, March 9, will last for two hours and aims to engage service providers, Home Gateway, chip and software developers in a region where there are strong ambitions for the Smart Home.

Following the seminar for Taipei companies, HGI will continue its quarterly meeting with sessions from March 10 to March 12 for its members and registered observers. Topics will include a Smart OTT Home Gateway, a Hybrid Access Home Gateway and a Virtual Processor/Hypervisor approach. Smart Home architecture, security requirements and use cases will also be discussed, along with HGI's Smart Device Template scheme which was published in draft form last month. HGI will also update overall Home Gateway requirements (Residential Profile) and Wi-Fi testing requirements for the Home Gateway.

"HGI plays a key role for both service providers and manufacturers which are aiming to address the digital home marketplace," said HGI's Chief Technology and Business Officer Duncan Bees. "We hope those attending the seminar will become well informed about HGI's work, which clearly identifies current market requirements for addressing the service provider residential broadband access market. Asia provides a unique perspective and we invite companies in the region, particularly in Taiwan, to come to the HGI meeting in Taipei for a deep perspective."
