Everywire: CopperGate Joins HomeGrid’s Board of Directors

CopperGate Joins HomeGrid’s Board of Directors

HomeGrid Forum has just announced that it has recruited CopperGate Communications to become a member of its Board of Directors.

CopperGate brings to the table the big Kahunah telco, AT&T and 39 other service providers around the world who use the company’s chip sets.  As an AT&T U-verse customer, I know their stuff works.  It distributes traffic in the house and makes upgrades and remote service calls a breeze.

In the why history is so important department…. a little over a year ago, CopperGate bought the AV powerline technology of Conexant, giving the company a big footprint in coax, phoneline and powerline. 

My take is that CopperGate has been heading toward G.hn all along, and now that they are on the HomeGrid Board, they bring a ton of credibility to the organization’s vision of bringing next-generation, unified coaxial, phone line and powerline home networking standard to frution.
