We address the challenge of a ubiquitous home network for new high-bandwidth applications and services such as video. We present a new concept of a hybrid coax-wireless home network using IEEE 802.11 technology. We further analyze this solution from a technical as well as other aspects and show its superiority by comparing it to alternative solutions. With data rates of up to 54 Mbps, guaranteed QoS, security, and robust whole-home coverage, operators and service providers can deliver and distribute new bandwidth intensive services throughout the home. The usage of the popular 802.11 standard ensures many advantages, such as availability and interoperability of components, low cost, and abundance of complimentary products.
