Speaking earlier today at Germany’s CeBIT Global Conferences, chipset manufacturer Lantiq’s CEO Christian Wolff predicted the Giga Home will become reality by 2013 due to an intelligent hybrid approach of communication technologies inside and outside the home.

"Until recently, users had only a few devices, such as a PC or notebook, connected in the home. Today, the home’s network is overwhelmed with many more connected devices. Multiple tablets, smart phones, set-top-boxes and a new generation of displays and TVs will all be connected with each other to distribute large amounts of data and multiple HD streams in parallel,” he noted. "This ever-increasing demand will be successfully addressed by the Giga Home scenario, which will become reality by the year 2013 due to solutions and efforts of carriers and chipset manufacturers such as Lantiq."

Wolff believes a smart hybrid approach of wireless and wireline technology will be the solution to facilitate the Giga Home. Within the homes, the latest sets of Wi-Fi standards as well as G.hn, a home wired networking standard recently validated by the ITU-T, help to bring higher bandwidth to users and their devices. Outside the home a fast and mature combination of fiber, VDSL, vectoring and bonding will support the Giga Home.
