ETSI Publishes Smart-Home Specifications
ETSI has released three Home Gateway Initiative specifications as Technical Specifications. Following the closure of the Home Gateway Initiative in June 2016, work on the three specifications was transferred to ETSI. They have now been published using the ETSI Publicly Available Specification process.

The three specifications are ETSI TS 103 424, which deals with smart-home architecture and system requirements; ETSI TS 103 425, which describes requirements for wireless home area networks (WHANs) supporting smart-home services; and ETSI TS 103 426, which contains requirements for HGI Open Platform 2.1 regarding modular software deployments on home gateways. They are also available here.

The ETSI Publicly Available Specification (PAS) process enables an organization that has signed an agreement with ETSI to submit one or more of its Publicly Available Specifications for adoption by ETSI as an ETSI Technical Specification or ETSI Technical Report. According to ETSI, a Publicly Available Specification published as an ETSI Technical Specification benefits from ETSI's recognition as a European Standards Organization and reputation as a provider of standards for global use. Submitting a PAS to be published by ETSI can also be a first step toward it becoming a European standard. These three specifications from the HGI are the first to be published by ETSI under its recently revised PAS process. Further information about the PAS process is available at ETSI's website.

"HGI consulted closely with ETSI SmartM2M during the development of these key documents," said Enrico Scarrone, the chairman of ETSI's SmartM2M Technical Committee, in a prepared statement. "This work complements our own work on smart appliances very well, and we're happy to integrate these HGI requirements into our family of specifications."
