(IDG) -- Tut has announced that it has added Motorola
to the list of companies licensing Tut technology. This
enables users to network devices in the home over
existing telephone extension wires.
Motorola will license HomeRun, which can be used to
set up home telecommuter LANs without installing
dedicated networking cable. The HomeRun LAN
supports speeds up to 1M bit/sec, but that is
projected to increase up to 10M bit/sec next year, as
the technology is refined.
HomeRun does not interfere with regular voice phone
3Com, AT&T Wireless, Advanced Micro Devices,
Compaq, Intel, Lucent, National Semiconductor and
Rockwell Semiconductor Systems also license
