Three Home Gateway Initiative specifications have been published as Technical Specifications by ETSI.
It follows the closure of the Home Gateway Initiative, which wound up its operations in June.
The three specifications are ETSI TS 103 424, which deals with smart home architecture and system requirements, ETSI TS 103 425 which describes requirements for Wireless Home Area Networks (WHANs) supporting smart home services and ETSI TS 103 426 which contains requirements for HGI Open Platform 2.1 regarding modular software deployments on the home gateway. They are also available at www.homegatewayinitiative.org/links.
Enrico Scarrone, chairman of ETSI SmartM2M Technical Committee, says: “HGI consulted closely with ETSI SmartM2M during the development of these key documents. This work complements our own work on smart appliances very well, and we’re happy to integrate these HGI requirements into our family of specifications.”
The ETSI Publicly Available Specification (PAS) process enables an organisation which has signed an agreement with ETSI to submit one or more of its Publicly Available Specifications for adoption by ETSI as an ETSI Technical Specification or ETSI Technical Report.
Submitting a PAS to be published by ETSI can also be a first step towards it becoming a European Standard. These three specifications from the HGI are the first to be published by ETSI under its recently revised PAS process. Further information on the PAS process is available on the ETSI website.
