The HGI, founded in 2004 by major broadband service providers and joined by leading vendors of digital home equipment, is your gateway to the smart home.

We want to see the smart home ecosystem develop strongly for the benefit of HGI members and the industry as a whole. With this in mind we publish requirements and test plans for home gateways and wireless/wireline home networks. Our strategic focus is helping applications, home gateway middleware and home network-based devices to connect seamlessly. Some of our work now uses open-source, software oriented approaches. HGI members benefit from participation and early access to our specifications.

The HGI Open Platform 2.0 suite captures home gateway software modularity requirements and provides  remote test tools that form a cornerstone of many of the operators’ and vendors’ home gateway strategy.

We welcome service providers and manufacturers of silicon, gateways, middleware, applications and end devices from around the globe. Our aim is to help companies understand the operator market with accurate, insightful, and timely work in the broadband home, and we welcome your company’s involvement.
