The HomePlug® Alliance (www.homeplug.org), the worldwide industry group for powerline communications networking, along with the China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR) of MIIT have announced that HomePlug products from new HomePlug member company, Fujian JinQianMao, have passed the required testing to meet the CQC Certification. This is the first time that powerline networking products have achieved the CQC Certification requirements making HomePlug products uniquely, “ready-for-retail” in China.

The announcement was made at a jointly-hosted seminar in Beijing on 10 June 2014 which highlighted the ability to use HomePlug technologies to improve home networking performance for broadband media devices, as well as enable the smart home or Internet of Things (IoT). Presentations were given by China Telecom Fujian, CATR, Fujian JinQianMao and the HomePlug Alliance.

Also at the event, HomePlug provided a live demonstration showcasing the interoperability between some of the latest, next generation HomePlug AV2 products with best-selling HomePlug AV retail products. HomePlug AV2 products are available now at retailers worldwide and are ready for use by service providers to enable next generation connectivity for IPTV and other broadband services for their customers.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters.
