Livermore, CA., March 31, 2010 - All Systems Broadband (ASB)
joined HomePNA, an association of companies that promotes the creation of
in-home high speed networks utilizing existing wiring and cables. The explosion of multimedia devices
available for household use has forced the need for elimination of bandwidth
bottlenecks within the home.
"We see growing consumer demand for the
abililty to distribute entertainment such as IPTV throughout the house, and for
that content to 'follow' the user from room to room," says Mike Grice,
Vice-President of Product Design for ASB.
"Additionally, multiple family members seek to gain simultaneous
internet access from personal computers, while also sharing peripheral
resources such as printers, scanners and back-up storage." Remarkably, today's home network must
be as sophisticated as those found in many office environments. Unlike a business setting, however,
each home may be equipped with any of a number of different wiring
"HomePNA has helped to
bring consistency to home networks," explains Brice, "and that is what ASB is
all about as well." The
company designs and manufactures a variety of connectivity products
designed to tie devices into home networks, including HDMI, Ethernet, HDTV, RCA,
and a wide array of other cables.
"Perhaps of even
greater value is our ability to custom engineer solutions
to specific needs," concludes Brice.
"We believe that this ASB capability will allow service providers to
take full advantage of the operational and cost efficiencies made possible by
evolving HomePNA specifications." About HomePNA
