interesting: HomeRF Gets Up to Speed. Anything that moves things along the path to wireless is worth watching. Massive broadband will never come through wires – I’m talking 70-90% penetration in North America, and not just to a single box or two, but to a whole home.
I’m curious to see whether there’ll be a wire into the location and then a transmitter or if everything will be wireless. I suspect the latter, with every network transaction encrypted, auto-config of new devices entering the space according to rules, and a distribution of network monitoring duties among devices (i.e., no central server in a location controlling everything).
