HomePlug Summit Showcases HomePlug's Bright Future in China

BEIJING --(Business Wire)--

The HomePlug® Alliance (www.homeplug.org), the worldwide industry group for powerline communications networking, completed the first of three events in China as part of a Connected Home Summit Roadshow. The first event was held in Beijing on Monday, November 11th and the Roadshow delegation will now travel to Shanghai for a November 13th event and then Shenzhen for a November 15th event. HomePlug technology enables a home's electrical wires to distribute broadband Internet, HD video, digital music and smart energy applications.

The Connected Home Summit in Beijing attracted a full audience of 200 guests and included a variety of keynotes covering HomePlug technologies as well as traction and growth potential in China. The following sessions were held:

  • Smart Grid Development and PLC Technology Outlook - featuring Xiaomin Bai, Vice General Engineer and Chief Expert, China Electronic Power Research Institute (CEPRI)
  • New Opportunities from the "Broadband China" Strategy - featuring Meimei Dang, Deputy chief engineer, Communication Standards Institute, China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR) of MIIT
  • Embedded Applications using HomePlug - featuring Dr. Yangyang Li, Technical Director, Digital Home, Hisense China
  • HomePlug and Hybrid Products in Retail - featuring Jianxun Su, Vice President, Product, TP-LINK Technologies, Co., Ltd.
  • Expanding Coverage and Throughput with HomePlug AV2 - featuring Jesse Jen, Senior Manager of Business Development, Qualcomm Atheros (News - Alert)
  • Whole-Home Wired and Wireless Networking with nVoy/IEEE 1905.1 - featuring John Liu, Senior Technical Sales Manager, Broadcom (News - Alert)
  • HomePlug enabling Smart Energy/Smart Grid/the Internet of Things - featuring Stanley Chen, Senior Marketing Manager, MStar Semiconductor


A panel discussion was also held where guests discussed the HomePlug opportunity in China. Moderated by Chunyong Wu, Editor in Chief, DWRH.net, the panel included guests from a variety of backgrounds, including speakers Rob Ranck of HomePlug Alliance, Jianxun Su of TP-LINK, Yanghang Li of Hisense, as well as Professor Jianming Liu of China State Grid.

A HomePlug AV interoperability demonstration featured products using four different silicon vendors' chipsets, noting that this level of interoperability is a strong indicator of the technology's maturity and drives toward a cost effective ecosystem. Additionally, the alliance hosted a multi silicon vendor demonstration of nVoy hybrid networking technology (based on the IEEE (News - Alert) 1905.1). The nVoy demo consisted of hybrid (HomePlug & Wi-Fi) products from Broadcom, MStar and Qualcomm Atheros interoperating and validating 1905.1 features. As a special note, CATR participated on the China Panel and announced that they have been selected as the test lab for nVoy Certifications in China.

Hisense also hosted an eye-catching demo which included a 58" retail-available TV set with HomePlug AV technology embedded inside the TV itself - no adapters or Wi-Fi security key needed to connect this TV to online services. A new Hisense Air Conditioning Unit was showcased with HomePlug AV technology embedded inside to enable simple control and automation use cases.

Guests found the event offered a wealth of information regarding HomePlug home networking technologies and potential in the China market and worldwide. "We are pleased with the success of our Connected Home Summit in Beijing and look forward to continuing our momentum at our next scheduled Summits in Shanghai and Shenzhen," said Rob Ranck, HomePlug Alliance President. "We would like to thank our guests and speakers for bringing lively and insightful discussions to our Summits."
