Integrated Platforms & Home Systems
This CPA theme focused on the interconnection and interoperability of household and consumer devices and networked appliances, as well as the convergence of broadcasting and interactive services within the home. Aspects covered include compatibility between home networking technologies, embedding of networked devices in everyday appliances, and the integration of home and public networks. Test beds demonstrating services in key application areas are also supported.
The projects cover the wide area of extended home environments including not only the home network, but also the complete chain of a "Smart Home", starting from the content provider, application service provider to the core/access network and then entering the home via a residential gateway.
A general overview indicates that the success of introducing home networking strongly depends on the availability of easy to install home networks, preferably based on wireless or already installed infrastructure, the availability of a gateway which provides a secure demarcation between public and private domains and most important, the availability of new innovative bundled home services.
