Network Wiring to Increase in Digital Home

Red Herring reports that increased demand for networked homes with digital media centers will result in more than 10 times the demand for integrated wired technology by 2010, iSuppli

The electronics industry research firm said shipments of networked devices using home wiring technology will increase to 223.8 million units in 2010 from 17.5 million units in 2006. That means the market for such products will enjoy a compound annual growth rate of 89 percent, noted iSuppli. Rising demand for wired technology means that Wi-Fi won�t take over the digital home anytime soon. Instead, the shift from a PC-centered home to one that uses multiple gadgets, or multiple units of the same box, throughout many rooms means that wireless hookups won�t be sufficient to connect the home.

�There will be a lot of issues that aren�t [problematic] with just PC content, like digital rights management,� said iSuppli analyst Steve Rago. �Content that is not to be copied� will have to have an awful lot of security and copyright assurances� that wireless technology can�t guarantee. The wired vs. wireless needs of various workloads could one day result in a �residential gateway,� a sophisticated digital entertainment box that would be able to differentiate between sessions and route them through wires or Wi-Fi.
