Home Networks – Applications, Technologies and Markets 

This report addresses the growing interest from consumers and the industry to the development of home networks. Such networks can serve:
  • Local in-home distribution of entertainment information (HD video and similar)
  • Smart Grid-related information distribution.
The report analyzes both scenarios. It concentrates on technologies and markets for such home networks. Multiple types of wired and wireless in-home networks are discussed and their marketing characteristics are analyzed. 

The report also provides the industries analysis and survey of vendors. 

The report can be useful to sales, managerial and technical staff working on home networking-related aspects of communications.
