As the saying goes one hat does not fit everyone and the same applies to home networking. Our home today will have a mixture of devices that use different method of communicating; that is because we buy devices base on the service it provides rather than its method of networking. Therefore, you will see that the devices we have may use Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Homeplug, MoCA or a combination of some. Thus, the introduction of nVoy, a solution based on the IEEE 1905.1 standard.
Hybrid home networking will move from specification to reality with the introduction of a new nVoy certification and marketing program for HomePlug, MoCA, Wi-Fi and Ethernet products implementing the IEEE 1905.1 hybrid networking standard. By providing a common communication protocol, nVoy Certified products will enable consumers and service providers to leverage the strengths of the wired and wireless networking technologies prevalent in many homes today.
