This complete technical guide to home network media, protocols, and implementation is the first systematic technical guide to all leading transmission media and communication protocols for in-home networking.

Using detailed simulation techniques provided as MATLAB files and SIMULINK models (downloadable from the companion website), Walter Y. Chen covers the technical challenges and implementation of twisted-pair telephone wiring, coax, powerline, and RF transmission. Next, Chen thoroughly reviews each leading communications protocol: Ethernet, HomePNA 1.0/2.0, FireWire, X-10, CEBus, HomePlug, Wireless LAN, and HomeRF. Finally, he covers today's leading mechanisms and protocols for linking the Internet with home networks. Coverage includes:

  • Transmission potentials for each medium, including channel and noise models, and channel capacity calculation

  • Key features of each standard, with corresponding implementation approaches

  • Standardized transmission protocols, corresponding transceiver structures, and performance estimates

  • Home network topologies and interconnection protocols, including Peer-to-Peer, NAT, and MAC Bridging
