Look Forward to the Future of Home Networking
Rhonda Castagna gets a glimpse into the near future from John Egan of the HomeGrid Forum. The innovation is called G.hn, and Rhonda is given an understanding and a demonstration of a new technology that uses a home’s electrical system to send digital information throughout the house. This digital information can be internet content, computers, even HDTV. Advantages include security measures built into the G.hn devices, which are simply plugged into a convenient wall socket. They also deliver greater signal clarity in places such as apartment buildings, where signal noise and interference can be a problem.
