The HomeGrid Forum has announced that the G.hn home networking standard has been adopted into the Catalog of Standards created by the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP). G.hn, or Gigabit home networking, enables high-speed, in-home networking using existing household wires (e.g., power lines and phone lines) and can support smart grid applications.

According to the HomeGrid Forum, the move represents an important step forward in the acceptance of the high-speed home networking standard.

"We could not be more pleased at this announcement," says John Egan, president of the HomeGrid Forum. “The U.S. market is highly competitive, but the demand for a reliable, secure and resilient solution to the market’s growing home networking and smart grid needs has never been greater. The endorsement of the SGIP demonstrates that we have a great technology for the North American market, as well as globally.”
