The nVoy programme has established the certification regime for hybrid home networking.
The test house has been selected, and the certification test plan has been verified against several silicon platforms to validate product interoperability. nVoy Certification is now primed to take hybrid networking to the next phase of growth.
nVoy Certified products provide a common communication protocol which will enable service providers and consumers to leverage the strengths of the wired and wireless networking technologies. Products with nVoy Certification will support enhanced interactions between MoCA, Wi-Fi, HomePlug and Ethernet technologies, along with several advanced capabilities to enhance performance and service provider requirements.
National Technical Systems (NTS) has been selected as the initial nVoy authorised test laboratory to validate product interoperability and compliance to the IEEE 1905.1 specification.
Osman Sakr, CTO at NTS said: "The hybrid networking market is poised for growth, and NTS is pleased to contribute its knowledge and experience to helping to ensure interoperability and certification testing for nVoy products".
The nVoy Certification program will be available to members of HomePlug Alliance, Wi-Fi Alliance and MoCA and will require PHY/MAC certification(s) from the appropriate alliance(s) as a prerequisite.
Rob Ranck, president, HomePlug Alliance commented on the program: "HomePlug Alliance is pleased to be at the forefront of driving the nVoy program to fruition. We have seen strong interest in this program, and we are eager to address the intensifying networking needs of the marketplace with nVoy Certified products."
