G.hn technology helps industrial networks overcome traditional digitalization challenges by ensuring reliable connectivity and maintaining the functionality of existing infrastructure, according to industry research released by HomeGrid Forum today.
HomeGrid Forum’s IIoT Task Force Members have published a research document called ‘G.hn Industrial IoT Use Cases White Paper’ which was developed in response to the proliferation of digital technology and the presence of challenges in connecting a growing number of devices through traditional methods.
The Chair of HomeGrid Forum’s, Industrial IoT Task Force Chair, and Head of Research & Development at Teleconnect, Philipp Rietzsch said, “G.hn offers not only a solution to overcome the challenges of digitalization, but also eases and accelerates the digital transition by filling the gap between old and new technologies.”
Because of its ability to connect devices and operate efficiently with multiple types of networks over any wire such as coax, phone lines, powerlines and optical fiber, G.hn is a fast alternative and a reliable backbone for other technologies and networks. The white paper explains how this makes it suited to supporting the automation of buildings, cities and factories through use case examples including smart lifts, smart lighting and entrance guard systems.
The white paper also provides an overview of G.hn technology and also explains how the G.hn standard has evolved via periodic updates and clarifications based on feedback from the industry. The standard is currently being amended to ensure it can deliver data rates up to 10 Gbps.
HomeGrid Forum President, Livia Rosu said, “G.hn technology was chosen to address an increasingly wider range of industrial use cases. G.hn provides secure, low latency, high speed, real-time connectivity, especially critical for access and industrial applications where new cables and infrastructure can be otherwise challenging to install such as buildings and cities automation as well as factories automation. The white paper reveals innovative G.hn solutions that contribute to a fully digitalized industrial world”.
