1 HomePlug & Hybrid Networking for Wired Performance and Wi-Fi Mobility
2 nVoy™, announced June 4, 2013:The nVoy program will provide the industry with product certification and marketing for interoperable solutions implementing the IEEE hybrid home networking standard.22
3 Rising Annual Shipments of Networking Gear Broadband speed PLC alone is expected to triple by 2014 Millions of PLC UnitsSource: iSuppli Q3-2010
4 No single connectivity technology has 100% Coverage in every region in every home Only 11% of homes have CAT5Part of a home may be on the other PLC phase reducing performanceWi-Fi coverage is dependent on construction and densitySeamlessly add multiple connectivity technologies and the picture changes44
5 Multiple Technologies are Needed No one technology can meet the performance and coverage needs of today’s market（没有一项技术可以独立地同时满足性能和覆盖范围的市场要求）ETHERNETEach one has advantages in certain scenariosVarious states of adoption and consumer awarenessIndustry leading technologies with roadmaps of continued innovationE.g. Wi-Fi 11ac, HomePlug AV2 and MoCA 2Hybrid networks using multiple standards are ideal for whole home connectivity
6 The Future | Hybrid Home Networking Hybrid TechnologyMAC/PHYMAC/PHY 1901MAC/PHY 802.3MAC/PHY MoCAETHERNETIEEE defines an abstraction layer （抽象层）that provides a common interface （接口）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 to fruition.Great for the industry: Enhances user experience and enables next generation connected services for consumers.Hybrid Networking Standard (IEEE ) was unanimously approved by the Working Group in December 2011.
7 IEEE 1905.1 (Hybrid) Industry Support Among Others, Active Members of IEEE Include:
8 Backwards Compatibility （向后兼容性） Hybrid TechnologyMAC/PHYMAC/PHY 1901MAC/PHY 802.3MAC/PHY MoCAETHERNETFEATURESBackwards Compatibility （向后兼容性）Mobility （移动性）Ease of Use （易用性）Advanced Diagnostics （高级诊断）Quality of Service （服务质量）Aggregated Throughput （整体性能）Fallback （及时切换）Load Balancing （负载平衡）Multiple Simultaneous Streams（多并发媒流体）Self-install （自动安装）Security （安全性）Energy Management （功耗管理）Universal Connectivity（连接性）
9 Backwards Compatibility （向后兼容性） TechnologyInteroperability with deployed Wi-Fi, HomePlug, MoCA and Ethernet devices.BenefitsAugments rather than replaces current deployments.No loss of investment to Service Providers or end users from switching technologies.Example Use CaseBill has significant investment in his existing wired and wireless entertainment network and wants to add new products.He purchases gear and it works seamlessly with his existing Wi-Fi, HomePlug and MoCA products already in use.
10 Mobility （移动性） Technology Wi-Fi is integrated into the hybrid network.IEEE is the only industry standard to integrate wired technologies with Wi-Fi.BenefitConsumers no longer have to choose between the flexibility of Wi-Fi and the performance of wires for home connectivity.Example Use CaseTrigva 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.
11 Ease of Use （易用性） Technology Common setup procedures for adding devices to a network.Establishes secure linksQuality of Service implementationsNetwork ManagementBenefitSimplifies network setup for consumers [networking proficiency not required].Example Use CaseShawn works for a Service Provider and regularly installs triple play services.reduces the time Shawn spends adding products and services to home networks.
12 Advanced Diagnostics （高级诊断） TechnologyEmpowers service providers to gain access to a customer’s network and troubleshoot.The overall network monitors itself to ensure reliable and uninterrupted operation.BenefitEase of troubleshooting from a Service Provider perspective.More robust home networks increase consumer confidence.Example Use CaseA service provide is concerned with the amount of time and money spent troubleshooting.By utilizing ’s advanced diagnostics, the service provider is able to quickly resolve issues on hybrid networks.
13 Quality of Service （服务质量） TechnologySpecifies end-to-end QoS without compromising the internal integrity of any medium over which it runs.Assigns high priority to IGMP based IPTV streams.BenefitEnsures delivery of video will not be interrupted by other network traffic.Example Use CaseAn IPTV Service Provider utilizes IEEE ’s QoS in a customer’s home.The network recognizes an IPTV video stream, intelligently chooses the best medium for delivery and ensures the video goes uninterrupted.
14 Aggregated Throughput （整体性能） TechnologyEnables a single device to aggregate throughput from multiple interfaces.BenefitMaximizes speed (throughput) for consumer applications regardless of proximity to the router.Especially important for demanding applications such as IPTV and online gaming.Example Use CaseConrad has been unable to stream blue ray quality HD video to his bedroom located on the 2nd floor far from his router.By switching to , Conrad’s network aggregates his set top box’s HomePlug and Wi-Fi connections to easily support his HD video stream.
15 Fallback （及时切换） Technology Optimizes the hybrid network by making an alternative route available when a link is down or congested.BenefitIncreases the performance and reliability of the network.Example Use CaseLarry 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 Larry’s knowledge.
16 Load Balancing （负载平衡） Technology Enables a hybrid network to intelligently distribute video over different paths.BenefitIncreases hybrid network’s reliability by limiting congestion.Alleviates network glitches by switching paths if one path becomes impaired.Example Use CaseMolly streams an HD video while her boys play online games on a hybrid network.The network delivers a flawless HD viewing and gaming experience by intelligently choosing between [and aggregating] the wired and wireless paths.
17 Multiple Simultaneous Streams （多并发媒流体） TechnologyThe network utilizes multiple mediums simultaneously.Aggregates throughput across mediums.BenefitIPTV and other broadband applications can exceed the maximum throughput of a single medium.Enables consumers to stream multiple HD videos simultaneously.Example Use CaseJon has been unable to deliver simultaneous HD video streams using a single technology so he purchases 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.
18 Self-install （自动安装） Technology Self configuration and push button authentication.BenefitIncreases end users’ ability to self-install.Example Use CaseTommy 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.
19 Security (安全性） Technology Consistent password and authentication procedures for legacy devices.Button push security configuration.BenefitHelps consumers, of all skill levels, to enable network security.Example Use CaseAlice is concerned about privacy but doesn’t know the first thing about setting a password on her router.She secures her network with the simple push of a button on each device and sleeps easy.
20 Energy Management （功耗管理） TechnologyOptimizes power usage across different technologies for “greener” operations.Selects interfaces for transmission of data such that other interfaces can be placed in sleep mode.BenefitEnables users to save electricity costs without sacrificing network performance.Example Use CaseLance is a recent graduate and wants to be environmentally friendly so selects 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.
21 Universal Connectivity（连接性） TechnologyIntegration between wired technologies (HomePlug, MoCA and Ethernet) and Wi-Fi.BenefitBrings 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 CaseBen uses a number of technologies in his connected home that are all seamlessly connected on his 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.
