Westell Technologies has been named an International CES 2011 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its visionary HomeCloud solution and groundbreaking HomeCloud Digital Home Manager (DHM) network appliance.  The broadband products and outside plant telecom specialist’s HomeCloud solution was judged by an independent panel consist of industrial designers, members of the media and engineers.

HomeCloud simplifies the situation for the end consumer by creating a home-based cloud computing environment. In doing so, consumers unify their home data access and gain an application platform from which to run a personalized set of cloud-like applications. Since HomeCloud applications operate within the home, users have improved control of their personal data.


HomeCloud allows users to easily share and synchronize data among their home devices. When desired, it can also selectively link home data to their preferred Internet-based applications and services. At the heart of the solution is the HomeCloud DHM, a new consumer network appliance from Westell that utilizes a patent-pending combination of specialized software and hardware in order to create a personal cloud in the home.

Visitor to this next year’s CES show on January 6-9, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada can see Westell HomeCloud DHM as part of the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase.
