Multiscreen Video Dominates Home Networking

Infonetics_HomeNetChartAccording to Infonetics Research, the home networking industry is increasingly focused on multiscreen video.

In a statement, Infonetics analyst Jeff Heynen said, in part: "Operators in North America and Western Europe are deploying higher-end gateways and set-top boxes with integrated wireless and wired technologies to distribute video to multiple devices in the home, driving a secondary market of MoCA set tops and HomePlug adapters."



  • In China, South East Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, the focus of home networking is first on expanding WiFi coverage, then quickly shifting to distributing multiscreen video.


  • Globally, home networking device revenue totaled $5.4 billion in the first half of 2013 (1H13), up 6% from the second half of 2012 (2H12).


  • MoCA devices, which ship primarily in North America, once again drove revenue growth.


  • Residential gateway revenue increased 7% in 1H13 from 2H12, as operators more heavily rely on residential gateways to deliver managed services.


  • Operator-provided residential gateways continue to cannibalize retail routers: Broadband router revenue and shipments declined in 1H13.

Test & Measurement in a Multiscreen World

The provision of any service/anywhere presents test and measurement challenges for cable operators that mix the old and the new. In this webinar, the first of two focusing on test and measurement in July, we examine how operators can ensure that their multiscreen service rollouts proceed smoothly and maintain the expected quality of experience. You’ll hear recommendations specific to the latest adaptive bit rate (ABR) and encoder boundary point (EBP) specifications, particularly around alignment and drift, as well as recommendations for packaging files together for testing of alignment prior to origin.  You’ll also discover the important role RF test continues to play in premises certification, leakage and ingress detection, and avoiding interference among the subscribers’ various devices.
