nVoy certification is now ready for hybrid home networking products implementing the IEEE 1905.1 hybrid home networking standard, marking a major step forward for the program.

National Technical Systems (NTS) has been selected as the initial nVoy authorized test laboratory to validate product interoperability and compliance to the IEEE 1905.1 specification.

By providing a common communication protocol, nVoy certified products will enable service providers and consumers to leverage the strengths of the wired and wireless networking technologies prevalent in many homes today. Products with nVoy certification will support and foster enhanced yet simplified interactions between MoCA, Wi-Fi, HomePlug and Ethernet technologies, along with several advanced capabilities to enhance performance and service provider requirements.

“HomePlug Alliance is pleased to be at the forefront of driving the nVoy program to fruition,” noted Rob Ranck, president. “We have seen strong interest in this program, and we are eager to address the intensifying networking needs of the marketplace with nVoy Certified products.”

The nVoy Certification program will be available to members of HomePlug® Alliance, Wi-Fi Alliance® and MoCA and will require PHY/MAC certification(s) from the appropriate alliance(s) as a prerequisite.
