The HomeGrid Forum has revealed that the Marvell silicon chipset comprised of the 88LX3142 digital baseband processor and the 88LX2718 baseband analogue front-end, achieved the first G.hn Certification awarded under HomeGrid’s Compliance & Interoperability program.
The next step is system testing and certification for those systems with certified silicon. The first Systems Plugfest occurs 17-21 December at TRaC Global’s headquarters in Hull, United Kingdom. All companies with G.hn working system designs are eligible to attend.
Tom Starr, Chair of ITU-T’s Study Group 15, Working Party 1 and chairman of the Broadband Forum, said, “There has been a lot of preparation to arrive at this step, and it is a very significant leap forward. It will ensure that all G.hn products will be compliant and interoperable from Day One – an important consideration for both Service Providers and ultimately for end users. The Broadband Forum is proud to have collaborated with HomeGrid on developing the system-level interoperability test plan.” The Broadband Forum is a global organisation that develops testing, management and architectural specifications for the broadband industry.
