The HomePlug Powerline Alliance announced its support of the IEEE P1905 working group's efforts to define the first standard for hybrid home networks. A P1905 network would include combinations of stationary home networking devices such as set-top boxes, home gateways, Blu-ray players and TV sets, and mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and cellphones.

The IEEE P1905 standard is intended to provide an abstraction layer to established powerline, wireless, coaxial cable and Ethernet home networking technologies: IEEE P1901/HomePlug AV, WiFi, MoCA and Ethernet.
