Paris, France, July 21st, 2008 Frédéric Onado, VP Marketing & Sales for SPiDCOM Technologies and VP EMEA of HomePlug Powerline Alliance, will speak during Connections Europe Conference, that will take place in Berlin, Germany, on August 29th 2008.
Frederic Onado will participate on the panel discussion entitled: "Residential Gateways - Devices Enabling New Services". He will explain why HomePlug AV technology has become the natural home networking interface for Home Gateways and how it helps service providers enrich and differentiate their offers.

HomePlug AV was defined to meet all the requirements of the multimedia home network. Backed by a powerful consortium of more than 80 members from each step of the value-chain (chip designers, consumer electronics manufacturers, ISPs), HomePlug AV is the only open and multi-sourced PLC (Powerline Communication) standard.
Inside IEEE P1901 work group, HomePlug Panasonic joint proposal has been selected "candidate baseline" in the Access, In-Home and Coexistence clusters, being the only remaining technology proposal to become the worldwide IEEE standard for PLC.
