Executive Summary

The home network is becoming a "Grand Central Station" for faster video, voice, and data traffic. Demand for a higher data rate is expected to increase as video changes from standard definition to high definition, meaning that home-networking systems must evolve along with emerging video standards. Currently, various interface standards for both wired and wireless networking are used to implement multimedia home networking, but none of these current standards guarantees quality-of-service (QoS) for live multimedia transmission within the home.
