This report addresses technologies and markets for home/office (“local”) distribution of bandwidth-intensive signals. Related applications that require QoS support and demand the rate of transmission from several Mb/s and up to several Gb/s became typical for current HDV, IPTV and similar signals distribution. These applications are opening the multi-billion market for manufacturers of related ICT devices; they also intend to satisfy the growing users’ demand for home/office interconnects.

Two major types of communications channels in the converged LAN/PAN environment are:

- Wireless, and
- Wired.

Both compressed and uncompressed transmission of HDV and similar signals is considered.

This report reflects dynamics of LAN/PAN markets and technologies for “local” distribution of bandwidth-intensive signals with an emphasis on recent advances; and, particular, it analyzes:

- WPAN – UWB, Visible Light Communication (VLC), and 60 GHz radio and competing technologies;

- PAN – HomePlug, HPNA-ITU, MoCA, HDBaseT, DiiVA and DisplayPort.

UWB WPAN. The UWB industry is suffering from a severe downturn. Several READ MORE >
