New Home Networking Standards

The home networking arm of CEA was hard at work, approving two new standards. CEA-851-A defines an IP-enabled network for connecting cluster networks to a whole-home broadband distribution backbone in order to facilitate integrated operation of appliances and networked components. Based on IEEE 1394, this network will accommodate Ethernet as an attached network via a bridge, and directly with the introduction of IEEE 1394c. Called the versatile home network, it provides a flexible and open network architecture and communications protocol specification for digital devices in the home. CEA-2027-A defines a user-to-machine interface method that allows a source of home-network services, such as a cable or terrestrial set-top box, digital VCR or DTV, to utilize the presentation capabilities in a network-attached renderer such as a DTV display or PC. The standard enables user control of networked devices (either local to the user or remote) via another device�s (e.g., DTV or PC) Web browser graphical user interface (GUI).
