HGI Expands Portfolio with New Ecodesign and Multi Session Support Documents

The Home Gateway Initiative (HGI) announced the ratification of two key documents focusing on ecodesign in home networking and home gateway traffic management.

The first document helps to further enhance HGI’s energy efficiency portfolio of work and is a big step towards bringing ecodesign to home networking by facilitating energy efficient, reusable power supplies.

The document is part of the HGI’s Release 3 specification family and has been produced by the HGI’s Energy Efficiency Task Force. The document has already been liaised to ETSI where it will form the basis of a new European series of standards. HGI’s work is also expected to directly influence work in this area at the ITU-T and IEC.

The second document sets technical requirements that will increase the reliability of the home gateway when handling some types of data traffic.

Founded in 2004, HGI is the world’s leading member-led organization devoted to translating broadband service providers’ service plans into published technology requirements for home enablers.
