HomePlug & Hybrid Networking for Wired Performance and Wi-Fi Mobility
2 2 nVoy, announced June 4, 2013: The nVoy program will provide the industry with product certification and marketing for interoperable solutions implementing the IEEE 1905.1 hybrid home networking standard. 2
Rising Annual Shipments of Networking Gear Broadband speed PLC alone is expected to triple by 2014 Source: iSuppli Q3-2010 Millions of PLC Units
4 4 No single connectivity technology has 100% Coverage in every region in every home Only 11% of homes have CAT5 Part of a home may be on the other PLC phase reducing performance Wi-Fi coverage is dependent on construction and density Seamlessly add multiple connectivity technologies and the picture changes 4
Multiple Technologies are Needed ETHERNET No one technology can meet the performance and coverage needs of todays market Each one has advantages in certain scenarios Various states of adoption and consumer awareness Industry leading technologies with roadmaps of continued innovation E.g. Wi-Fi 11ac, HomePlug AV2 and MoCA 2 Hybrid networks using multiple standards are ideal for whole home connectivity
The Future | Hybrid Home Networking IEEE 1905.1 defines an abstraction layer that provides a common interface for the most compelling home networking technologies in the market. A broad base of industry-leading chipmakers, equipment manufacturers and service providers are collaborating to bring IEEE 1905.1 to fruition. Great for the industry: Enhances user experience and enables next generation connected services for consumers. Hybrid Networking Standard (IEEE 1905.1) was unanimously approved by the Working Group in December 2011. 1905.1 Hybrid Technology MAC/PHY 802.11 MAC/PHY 1901 MAC/PHY 802.3 MAC/PHY MoCA
IEEE 1905.1 (Hybrid) Industry Support Among Others, Active Members of IEEE 1905.1 Include:
ETHERNET MAC/PHY 802.11 MAC/PHY 1901 MAC/PHY 802.3 MAC/PHY MoCA 1905.1 Hybrid Technology FEATURES Backwards Compatibility Mobility Advanced Diagnostics Aggregated Throughput Load Balancing Self-install Energy Management Ease of Use Quality of Service Fallback Multiple Simultaneous Streams Multiple Simultaneous Streams Security Universal Connectivity
Backwards Compatibility Technology Interoperability with deployed Wi-Fi, HomePlug, MoCA and Ethernet devices. Benefits Augments rather than replaces current deployments. No loss of investment to Service Providers or end users from switching technologies. Example Use Case Bill has significant investment in his existing wired and wireless entertainment network and wants to add new products. He purchases 1905.1 gear and it works seamlessly with his existing Wi-Fi, HomePlug and MoCA products already in use.
Mobility Technology Wi-Fi is integrated into the 1905.1 hybrid network. IEEE 1905.1 is the only industry standard to integrate wired technologies with Wi-Fi. Benefit Consumers no longer have to choose between the flexibility of Wi- Fi and the performance of wires for home connectivity. Example Use Case Trigva has an internet tablet and an IPTV set-top-box at the furthest corner of his house. He uses a hybrid HomePlug + Wi-Fi range extender to connect both his TV and tablet to the network.
Ease of Use Technology Common setup procedures for adding devices to a network. Establishes secure links Quality of Service implementations Network Management Benefit Simplifies network setup for consumers [networking proficiency not required]. Example Use Case Shawn works for a Service Provider and regularly installs triple play services. 1905.1 reduces the time Shawn spends adding products and services to home networks.
Advanced Diagnostics Technology Empowers service providers to gain access to a customers network and troubleshoot. The overall network monitors itself to ensure reliable and uninterrupted operation. Benefit Ease of troubleshooting from a Service Provider perspective. More robust home networks increase consumer confidence. Example Use Case A service provide is concerned with the amount of time and money spent troubleshooting. By utilizing 1905.1s advanced diagnostics, the service provider is able to quickly resolve issues on hybrid networks.
Quality of Service Technology Specifies end-to-end QoS without compromising the internal integrity of any medium over which it runs. Assigns high priority to IGMP based IPTV streams. Benefit Ensures delivery of video will not be interrupted by other network traffic. Example Use Case An IPTV Service Provider utilizes IEEE 1905.1s QoS in a customers home. The network recognizes an IPTV video stream, intelligently chooses the best medium for delivery and ensures the video goes uninterrupted.
Aggregated Throughput Technology Enables a single device to aggregate throughput from multiple interfaces. Benefit Maximizes speed (throughput) for consumer applications regardless of proximity to the router. Especially important for demanding applications such as IPTV and online gaming. Example Use Case Conrad has been unable to stream blue ray quality HD video to his bedroom located on the 2 nd floor far from his router. By switching to 1905.1, Conrads network aggregates his set top boxs HomePlug and Wi-Fi connections to easily support his HD video stream.
Fallback Technology Optimizes the hybrid network by making an alternative route available when a link is down or congested. Benefit Increases the performance and reliability of the network. Example Use Case Larry is using a Wi-Fi connection to stream a video to his TV when the Wi-Fi signal becomes weak. The network automatically switches to a HomePlug connection without Larrys knowledge.
Load Balancing Technology Enables a hybrid network to intelligently distribute video over different paths. Benefit Increases hybrid networks reliability by limiting congestion. Alleviates network glitches by switching paths if one path becomes impaired. Example Use Case Molly streams an HD video while her boys play online games on a 1905.1 hybrid network. The network delivers a flawless HD viewing and gaming experience by intelligently choosing between [and aggregating] the wired and wireless paths.
Multiple Simultaneous Streams Technology The network utilizes multiple mediums simultaneously. Aggregates throughput across mediums. Benefit IPTV and other broadband applications can exceed the maximum throughput of a single medium. Enables consumers to stream multiple HD videos simultaneously. Example Use Case Jon has been unable to deliver simultaneous HD video streams using a single technology so he purchases 1905.1 products. Jon is now taking advantage of aggregated throughput and can stream sports to his tablet while his wife watches her favorite movie on Netflix.
Self-install Technology Self configuration and push button authentication. Benefit Increases end users ability to self-install. Example Use Case Tommy and 3 friends get together once a week with their own game consoles to play online games. Each of the boys buy a set of HomePlug adapters; all they need in order to connect is find an outlet and press the security/authentication button.
Security ( Technology Consistent password and authentication procedures for legacy devices. Button push security configuration. Benefit Helps consumers, of all skill levels, to enable network security. Example Use Case Alice is concerned about privacy but doesnt know the first thing about setting a password on her router. She secures her 1905.1 network with the simple push of a button on each device and sleeps easy.
Energy Management Technology Optimizes power usage across different technologies for greener operations. Selects interfaces for transmission of data such that other interfaces can be placed in sleep mode. Benefit Enables users to save electricity costs without sacrificing network performance. Example Use Case Lance is a recent graduate and wants to be environmentally friendly so selects 1905.1 gear. His network chooses paths that allow devices not in use to enter sleep mode. His network is responsive and his electric bill is deflated.
Universal Connectivity Technology Integration between wired technologies (HomePlug, MoCA and Ethernet) and Wi-Fi. Benefit Brings whole home connectivity to a new level. Anywhere there is an outlet, coax jack or Wi-Fi signal, there is broadband. No more need to arrange a living room to place the TV and Game Console next to the broadband gateway. Example Use Case Ben uses a number of technologies in his connected home that are all seamlessly connected on his 1905.1 hybrid network: His NAS is out of site in the closet connected via a HomePlug adapter but easy to find on his hybrid network. His IPTV is connected using MoCA near the gateway. His mobile devices enjoy plenty of bandwidth using HomePlug/Wi-Fi range extenders where the signal normally would not reach.
