Xingtera G.hn Device Upgrades Home Networks with Radio Frequency (RF) Over Coax
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Xingtera, an innovation leader in delivering home networking solutions,
today announced the availability of Taurus (XT1200) chipset, a
G.hn home networking system on a chip (SoC) with RF capabilities that
delivers connectivity across Coax, Power-line, and Phone (News - Alert)-line media. By
utilizing the 100MHz or 200MHz RF bandwidth in the coax cable, Taurus ensures
home interconnectivity expansion for the growing performance needs of
smart applications without interfering with existing services. Taurus chipset
solves the FTTx deployment issues by addressing service providers' needs
for a high performance, low-cost, ubiquitous home connectivity solution.
"G.hn availability intersects the market at a time where end customers
need more bandwidth and service providers need innovative solutions,"
said Yuqing Niu, CEO, Xingtera. "Xingtera, a key contributor to the
ITU-T and Japan TTC standards, allows customers to expand their home
network utilizing the RF bands and to combine bandwidths increasing
performance thus opening up new possibilities to home networking."
"Service Providers are looking to support high performance home netwrks
with multiple HD IPTV (News - Alert) streaming and without installing new wires,"
commented Jeff Heynen, Directing Analyst, Broadband and Video,
Infonetics Research. "A G.hn solution, like Taurus, with RF over coax
capable of supporting 200MHz band plan could be a real game changer."
China Telecom (News - Alert), the largest fixed-line Service Provider in the world in
terms of the number of subscribers, is actively driving G.hn technology
development in China to extend its broadband access to the home network.
In addition to service providers, consumer electronics (CE) retailers
also benefit from the G.hn home networking products. One of the greatest
challenges facing consumers today is the many incompatible technologies
that exist in the home. G.hn technology provides the only single wired
standard for connecting devices together over coax, powerlines, and
phonelines. Enthusiastic support by service providers and CE suppliers
to G.hn establishes its eco-system world-wide.
