Broadband and home networking will shape the future. New standards are being reviewed as new technologies are developed and as the data rates increase. With several incoming signals to a home, such as voice, data, and video, there is a need to provide optimal distribution throughout to allow for easy access. Commercial and military communications are ubiquitous and constantly growing and improving using new technologies. Networking is becoming important on the military battlefield, and JTRS and Link 16 play important roles in the interoperability of communication devices. The development of these and other new technologies will provide the military with a network for all communication devices present and in the future.
