Our homes are becoming increasingly digital environments. Devices like tablets, smart phones, TVs, laptops, printers, home audio, and games consoles are governing the way consumers communicate, entertain themselves and manage content. Demand for access to these gadgets anytime from anywhere is growing every day. Whether it is for remote access to view pictures or home movies or to control home lighting and temperature, devices in the digital home not only need to be easily accessible, they need to be able to communicate with each other.
The problem is that there is no single unifying product on the market able to seamlessly connect all of these gadgets while maintaining the flexibility to link to future devices a consumer may purchase. While the tech savvy have gotten around this challenge by utilizing an always-on computer as a central communication hub, this is not a tenable solution. Not only does it take sophisticated technical knowledge to execute it, a PC consumes a lot of power when it is used as a 24/7 home server.
Marvell’s Home Server initiative solves this problem by enabling an affordable, low power platform with plug and play installation which connects home digital devices seamlessly and provides easy remote access.
Marvell’s total bundle solution – highly integrated SoCs, advanced 802.11n, WI-Fi, G.hn solution, Phy, power management, and switch – make it simple for OEMs to quickly design a system, resulting in faster time to market and reduced development cost. Marvell has also built a strong software ecosystem by enabling 3rd party software companies to develop consumer applications on Marvell Home Servers. The server's low power always on connectivity enables a new generation of remote cloud services including smart energy management, health monitoring and personalized entertainment.
