  • 1. CANTO Presentation: Enabling the Smart Home
  • 2. Requirements Defined by Services Mosaics Games Services News Commerce Smart Home Sports Real-time Info Communication
  • 3. A Massive Shift in Content Distribution
    • Video consumption patterns unquestionably shifting to internet-sourced content, home media distribution hub... but how rapidly?
  • 4. New Service Models Under Construction
    • Network no longer defined by media type, service providers seeking opportunities to deliver value by connecting targeted content to subs
      • Some embracing entire service experience – from content to presentation
      • Others focusing on the access “pipe” and fostering strategic partnerships
  • 5. Smart Home – Consumer Simplicity is Key
    • Where is the home network going…
      • One network - any service, anywhere, anytime
      • What access media?
        • Copper, fiber, wireless…
      • What access technology?
        • DSL, PON, pt-to-pt Ethernet, WiMax…
      • How much bandwidth is required?
        • <15 Mbps, 20-30 Mbps, >30 Mbps
      • How old is the “digital home”?
        • Age often defines what physical media is available / pre-wired
        • Determines how many man hours to wire
      • What type of data network?
        • Old networks are not sufficient to deploy demanding next generation applications
  • 6. The Customer Premises Challenge
    • Broadband historically has been used for Internet access
      • Computers typically near phone and power, less often near coax network
      • Homes with multiple computers have networking solution (10/100 Base-T)
      • Wireless sometimes sold as value add, typically 802.11g or older technology
    • IPTV reveals service delivery challenges, exposes networking “faults”
      • Multiple endpoints mandate in-home network… beware of older solutions
      • IPTV requires much greater bandwidth than traditional Internet access
      • IPTV is unforgiving… packet loss = customer dissatisfaction, service call
      • Most existing home networks do not address quality of service (QoS)
    • Once you enter the home, everything becomes “your problem”
      • User experience becomes indistinguishable from the service provider
  • 7. Physical Network Media Choices
    • Wire building with CAT5 (Ethernet)
      • Can be expensive (2 people for 3-4 hours)
      • Provides dedicated pt-to-pt bandwidth
      • Liability risk, some homeowners will not allow home re-wiring
    • Leverage existing premises wiring
      • Coax network (shared)
      • Power line network (shared)
      • Phone line network (shared)
    • Use wireless technology
      • Designed for data applications, Internet access
      • Potentially problematic for IPTV (pre 802.11n)
        • New solutions (Ruckus Wireless) rapidly solving issues
    Home Bandwidth Scale 200+ Capacity (Mbps) Wireless: 802.11n (MiMo Tech.) Wired: Phone Line (HPNA v3.0+) Wired: Power Line (HomePlug AV) Wired: CAT5 (pt-to-pt) COAX (MOCA / HPNA v3.1) 150+ 100+ 50+
  • 8. Home Networking Technologies/Solutions
    • HPNA v3
      • Developed by Home Phone Networking Alliance
      • Works over phone lines or RG-59/RG-6 coax
      • HPNA v3 over coax called HCNA
    • MoCA
      • Developed by Multimedia over Coax Alliance
      • Works over RG-59/RG-6 coax
    • HomePlug / HomePlug AV
      • Led by Powerline Alliance
      • Works over existing in-home power network
    • WiFi / Wireless Technology
      • Led by the WiFi Alliance (consortium of companies)
      • Works anywhere but operated in unlicensed spectrum
    Beware of proprietary solutions – generally lead to stranded investment
  • 9. Great Debate: HPNA v3 or MoCA
    • HPNA v3
      • Ratified as HomePNA v3.1, ITU G.9954
      • Technology / chipset developed by CopperGate
      • Operates in 4-28 MHz range
      • Adapted to be “friendly” with cable spectrum (in-home coax network)
      • Telco vendors heavily involved; several chip vendors
      • Provides bandwidth in excess of 100 Mbps
      • Synchronous operation with QoS
      • Industry proponent: AT&T
    • MoCA
      • Defined by Multimedia over Coax Alliance
      • Technology developed by Entropic
      • Operates in the 900 Mhz to 1.2 GHz range
      • Designed to enable DOCSIS and RF return
      • Cable MSOs and cable vendors heavily involved; 11 chip vendors
      • Provides bandwidth in excess of 100 Mbps
      • Provides QoS
      • Industry proponent: Verizon
    Motorola 2-Wire Scientific Atlanta (Cisco) ReadyLinks
  • 10. HomePlug – “Ready Made” Network
    • HomePlug
      • Defined by HomePlug Powerline Alliance
      • HomePlug 1.0 provides up to 8 Mbps throughput, good for data / Internet
      • Newer HomePlug AV provides bandwidth up to 200 Mbps, designed for video
      • Throughput can be affected by phase, location of devices and “noisy” household appliances (vaccuums, can openers, etc.)
    Linksys (Cisco) Asoka Netgear ZyXEL Actiontec Aztech
  • 11. Wireless – Cutting the Cord… Maybe
    • WiFi / Wireless Technology
      • Widely used for basic home networking
      • Speeds can range from 11 Mbps (early tech.) to upwards of 200 Mbps
      • Operates in unlicensed spectrum so it’s susceptible to interferrence
      • Newer 802.11n (draft spec.) utilizes MIMO technology (antenna array)
      • Both 802.11n and proprietary MIMO solutions enable QoS, video services
      • Not all WiFi solutions are created equal
      • Very difficult to troubleshoot remotely
      • Security may be an issue (people don’t enable it choose weak passwords)
    Linksys (Cisco) Dlink Belkin Netgear Standard Max Uplink / Downlink Approx. Range WiFi: 802.11a 54 Mbps ~30 meters WiFi: 802.11b 11 Mbps ~30 meters WiFi: 802.11g 54 Mbps ~30 meters WiFi: 802.11n 200+ Mbps ~50 meters
  • 12. Premises Service Distribution
    • CAT5 to multiple STB model
      • Video / data over CAT 5 wire
      • Value is “known” infrastructure
    • Centralized gateway model
      • Primary STB with 2-3 decoders for multiple video streams
    TV+STB PC TV+STB TV+ Multi Decoder STB ONT / NID (POTS splitter) TV PC TV Existing Coax Splitter ONT / NID (POTS splitter) DSL HPNA Coax POTS CAT 5 Wireless
  • 13. Premises Service Distribution
    • HPNA3 distribution model
      • Video and data over existing coax using HPNA v3 adaptors
      • Integrated into ONT / home device
    • Wireless distribution model
      • Ethernet distribution over 802.11
      • Earlier flavors not robust enough for video / high-bandwidth apps
