Home networking is the next great frontier for the consumer electronics and information technologies industries. This paper examines how IEEE 1394a, IEEE 1394b, and IEEE 1394.1 may be used to implement a home network with high performance audio/video distribution, Internet connectivity, and data sharing. Comparisons are made to other networking technologies such as Ethernet, HomePNA, IEEE 802.11, and HiperLAN. New connectivity solutions from BridgeCo are enabling the coexistence of multiple networking technologies.
