Home Networks Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Home networks refer to the type of networks you will typically find in a residential home. Home networks are also known as HAN’s (home area network). Networks found in homes usually include a small number of devices including mobile phones, computers, and printers. In more advanced home networks you may find a server that is dedicated to any number of tasks including file storage, file sharing, printer sharing, and any other resource sharing.

Home networks are also used in order to share internet access provided by fiber optic lines, cable TV, DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), and other ISP’s (Internet Service Providers). As internet access providers usually only supply residential homes with a single IP address, a router is usually used to share that IP with multiple devices inside the home. Routers are able to achieve this using NAT (network address translation). NAT allows requests to be made from multiple devices using the one IP address and when a response is received, the router is able to modify IP address information stored in the packets headers to send it to the appropriate device.

Home networks can be set up with wired and/or wireless technologies. More common today is the wireless setup as it is fast, convenient, and efficient. This technology allows devices to be moved more freely and can be easily secured against any unauthorized use.
