HomeGrid Forum and Allion Labs, the Taiwan-based testing house for G.hn, announced that 11 new devices from five home networking vendors have met the requirements of the forum’s G.hn certification process. 

The number of certified products, which has more than doubled over the past year, highlights the emerging role G.hn is playing in providing a gigabit speed home networking backbone.

Arris International, Comtrend Corporation, Prime Electronics, Satellitics, SendTek and ZINWELL were included in the latest group of equipment manufacturers and vendors that were involved in the latest certification testing round.

Specifically, the range of accepted products included four from Arris, two from Comtrend, two from SendTek, two from Zinwell and one each from Prime Electronics and Sigma.

“We hope to see the number continue to rise as G.hn enters new markets,” said Donna Yasay, president of HomeGrid Forum, in a release.

The HomeGrid Forum G.hn Certification program began in 2015 and involves a strict compliance and interoperability testing program to ensure the simplest and most secure means to connect the rising number of devices being installed by consumers on the home network.
