Any analysis on how good the powerline communication can be? I've seen using powerline for Ethernet before but the performance wasn't that good. With the new IEEE802.3at PoE+ and the proprietary POE++ product being built, I think people are thinking the other way round, using Ethernet cable to carry as much power as possible. So, it seems the two IEEE standards are fighting each other.

Can you elaborate more on powerline technology. I believe Atheros is RF company that provides wireless solutions.

So STM is joining Broadcom, Marvell and Atheros as recent acquirers of powerline technology, all more or less triggered by the rising need for hybrid home nets and the completion of IEEE 1901 and start of 1905.1. Looks like powerline will start happening--but such a low price suggests the opportunity may be seen as small for awhile.
