DLNA Approves HomePlug AV and HD-PLC Powerline Networking for Increased Digital Home Connectivity
The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®), HomePlug® Powerline Alliance and HD-PLC Alliance announced that DLNA has approved the HomePlug AV and HD-PLC powerline networking standards to be incorporated into the next version of its Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines, scheduled for release in early 2012.
Powerline networking products are certified by HomePlug Alliance and HD-PLC Alliance for HomePlug AV or HD-PLC technology. By adopting powerline networking into its Interoperability Guidelines, DLNA will enable DLNA Certified® products to be connected anywhere in the home where there is an electrical outlet. These technologies are well suited for connecting DLNA Certified game consoles, network storage devices, TVs and other DLNA Certified products far from a home router or modem for a high quality entertainment experience.
