The HGI, founded in 2004 by major broadband service providers (BSPs), and joined by leading vendors of digital home equipment, is shaping the way that IP services are delivered to the home.

The HGI publishes requirements for digital home building blocks. Those building blocks are the hardware and software in the digital home that connect consumers and services. They include home gateways, home networks, and home network devices.

HGI projects are triggered by the services vision of our BSP members, and build on the technical collaboration of all the HGI participants. The HGI welcomes BSPs and vendors from across the globe. Our members represent the entire spectrum of players in the broadband home area.
