New System Makes Household Communication Networks More Versatile

Household network communications is developing so quickly that it is necessary to adapt and change in order to take advantage of the new services and meet the broadband needs that they require. With this objective, a group of UC3M researchers have presented a new proposal for architecture for Residential Gateway or RGW, which is a device that connects a residential communications network with an access network from any server. This work, recently published in the journal, Computer Networks, is a pioneer in the field, according to the authors.

“Other research focuses on defining which functionalities a Residential Gateway should have, while ours is aimed at facilitating the way to implement them and making them more flexible,” asserted one of its authors, Jaime García Reinoso, Professor at the UC3M Department of Telematics Engineering.

Today’s household is in permanent evolution: it is no longer unusual to have two or more devices connected to the Internet, and it is believed that within a few years, all household communication will be carried out using IP protocol, the expert predicts. That is, telephone, radio, television, and any other apparatus which needs to communicate with another, will be connected using Internet infrastructure. “This requires a device that coordinates with the rest to obtain the best performance possible and which guarantees the necessary features so that users enjoy top quality services. The RGW proposed in our article is designed for such an aim, which at the same time, frees up the users from awkward configurations since it is designed to be able to carry out all of its functions autonomously and efficiently,” the professor explained.
