The Home Gateway Initiative has published a document, “Requirements for Software Modularity on the Home Gateway,” which sets requirements that support software applications within a flexible, managed framework.

Duncan Bees, chief technical and business officer for HGI, said in a statement: “Service providers are looking at deploying next generation applications using the Home Gateway and this document takes a major step towards making home automation, energy management and diagnostics, along with other next generation applications, a reality.”

Plans are in place to considerably extend the scope of software modularity testing at a 2011 test event in the UK later this year.

The Home Gateway Initiative was founded in 2004 by nine telecom operators, including Deutsche Telekom, BT, France Telecom, NTT and TeliaSonera.
