DLNA approves HomePlug standards for future guidelines

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) has approved the HomePlug AV and HD-PLC powerline networking standards for incorporation into the next version of its Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines.

Consumers will thus be able to connect their DLNA Certified products over their home’s electrical network via powerline networking, bypassing the need for new wiring or wireless technologies.

“Providing users the ability to use wired speeds without running new wires is a logical next step as more and more consumers add second and third TVs, game consoles and other DLNA Certified products further away from their wireless router,” said Nidhish Parikh, chairman and president of DLNA.

The next version of DLNA’s Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines are scheduled for release in early 2012.
