According to IMS Research, the installed base of home networks using no-new-wire technologies is projected to grow by almost 300% within the next five years, spurred by growth in IP and multiroom video services.From fewer than 70 million at the end of 2012, the number of households worldwide deploying no-new-wire technologies is expected to reach more than 250 million at the end of 2017, led by technologies such as HomePlug and MoCA.No-new-wire technologies use as a communications medium the existing wiring present in consumers' homes, such as powerlines, coaxial cables and twisted-pair cables. A variety of no-new-wire technologies exist, with HomePlug focusing on powerline and MoCA on coaxial cables. Another, G.hn, is attempting to unify all three types of wiring.
