By Ken Briodagh October 02, 2018

HomeGrid Forum recently announced that international TV and broadband company Liberty Global has become the latest member of the Alliance, alongside other service providers including AT&T, BT, CenturyLink, China Telecom and Verizon.

“Industry collaboration is an important component within the Alliance and Liberty Global are true innovators in investing in and enabling seamless home-networking technology,” said Dr. Len Dauphinee, President, HomeGrid Forum. “Liberty Global is a major provider of home networking and we are delighted to welcome them to HomeGrid Forum as we continue to move towards a smart connectivity future.”

Liberty Global has previously partnered with HomeGrid Forum Member Comtrend and Board Member MaxLinear to deploy a Wi-Fi extender solution that leverages G.hn technology. The G.hn standard provides a wired backhaul for Wi-Fi extenders and delivers improved Wi-Fi speeds in rooms far away from the residential gateway. The Wi-Fi extender solutions have been deployed in a number of Liberty Global subsidiaries since 2015 including Telenet in Belgium and Virgin Media in the UK.

“Liberty Global is delighted to be working with HomeGrid Forum and supporting the progress of G.hn technology,” said Peter Joyce, Director of Connectivity CPE Architecture, Liberty Global. “We look forward to working closely with HomeGrid Forum and improving the future of home networking for our customers.”
