Please, No More Proprietary Network Technology



I hate it when network vendors pile on proprietary technologies to differentiate their products, because it forces you to stick with one vendor in order to reap the benefits. That's what happened with 802.11g (remember the days of Turbo-G, Super-G, and the like?), and now it's happening with HomePlug AV powerline gear. Several vendors announced products that speed HomePlug powerline networks to 500 mbps (the spec only does 200 mbps)—but only if all of the gear on the network uses the technology. — Yardena Arar
