HomePNA Alliance’s technology standard has been approved by the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) for incorporation into the next version of its Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines.

More than 200 DLNA member companies share a vision of an interoperable network of products throughout the home, enabling a seamless environment for creating, managing and sharing new digital media and content services. The DLNA Certified logo appears on tens of thousands of products in the consumer electronics, mobile, personal computer, software, service provider, automotive and semiconductor industries. DLNA Certification ensures that a product has been tested and proven compatible with various products designed according to the DLNA Interoperability Guidelines.

HomePNA is an incorporated, non-profit association founded in June 1998 by companies including AT&T, Motorola, Cisco and Pace working together to create and certify multimedia home networking technology that operates over existing wires. HomePNA technology operates over coax cables and phone wires to deliver Internet Protocol (IP) services like IPTV, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and data, often bundled by service providers as triple-play services.

“The digital home includes a wide range of DLNA Certified products – from products purchased at retail stores to those distributed by service providers,” said Nidhish Parikh, chairman and president of DLNA, in a statement. “Certification of home networking technologies such as HomePNA is becoming an important component in the industry’s drive to make networked equipment in the home work together."

Four of the top five largest telcos in North America deploying IPTV have selected HomePNA, and more than 20 million HomePNA chipsets have been shipped, worldwide.
