Report: In-home distribution war heating up

A new report from ABI Research finds that WiFi will continue to play a big role in in-home distribution of triple play services, but other technologies like multimedia over coax (MoCa), Home Phone Networking Alliance (HPNA 3.0) and HomePlug will collectively see 45 million total connections on STB and gateways shipped in 2009. MoCa claims the highest actual throughput, but only works over coax. HPNA 3.0 can make use of both coax and phone lines, while HomePlug will see more limited uptake in the U.S. but may enjoy some market share in Europe, according to ABI.
