The market for home networking and connected entertainment devices will reach $85 billion by 2011 from $14 billion in 2005. The transformation of most conventional consumer electronics devices such as game consoles, DVD players, TVs and portable media players from stand-alone devices to network-connected ones using both wireless and wired IP communications technologies will fuel overall market growth, according to ABI Research. The emergence of enabling technologies such as 802.11n for wireless video distribution, HomePlug AV and MoCA as alternative multimedia network backbones, and DLNA media server and device interoperability software will also drive market growth.
