Four out of the top five North American telcos deploying IPTV chose HomePNA technology, the only global open standard for wired home networking. HomePNA is deployed in more homes each day in North America than any other technology and is rated the most deployed home network technology worldwide. HomePNA technology operates over coax cables and phone wires to deliver Internet Protocol (IP) services like IPTV solutions, voice over IP (VoIP) and data, often bundled by service providers as triple-play services. The HomePNA Alliance is an incorporated, non-profit association of industry-leading companies including AT&T, Motorola, and Cisco, working together to create, promote, and certify multimedia home networking technology that operates over existing wires.

CopperGate Communications is the only company whose standards-based chipsets enable carrier-class distribution of broadband digital content over all three types of existing wires in the home: coax, phone, and power. The company sells its technology to OEMs who build solutions for multimedia home networking and multi-dwelling unit (MDU) broadband access markets. CopperGate's chips are used in set-top boxes, residential gateways, optical network terminators and Ethernet bridges deployed by four of the top five telcos in North America who are deploying IPTV.

Bell Aliant is one of North America's largest regional communications providers. Through its operating entities, it serves customers in six Canadian provinces with information, communication, and technology services including voice, data, Internet, video and value-added business solutions. Through its xwave offices, Bell Aliant also provides IT professional services in Canada and the US.
