HomeGrid Forum has announced that Dr. Leonard Dauphinee has taken over from Donna Yasay as the Forum’s President.
As Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of the Broadband Group at MaxLinear, a promoter member of the Forum, Dauphinee is responsible for the technology roadmap of its Broadband business. In his CTO role, he owns the corporate strategy.
“G.hn has gained momentum within the service provider and retail markets over the last few years. It has proven its capabilities as the in-home networking technology of choice, but we still have work to do,” said Dauphinee. “A few years ago, we were talking about G.hn being the 4K TV enabler; now the industry has moved forward to explore the potential of 8K, and HomeGrid Forum is meeting this new challenge. We’re witnessing a rise in the use of wired backbones for wireless Access Points and home-mesh networking, and an increased demand for high-speed, reliable connectivity inside the home. I strongly believe the true potential of G.hn resides in enabling a complete range of connectivity options, and that G.hn will change the face of home-networking for generations to come.”
Prior to joining MaxLinear, Dauphinee worked at Broadcom and led broadband RF IC design for MoCA, satellite TV, cable modem, cable STB, terrestrial TV, and microwave backhaul products.
