Broadband and home networking will shape the future, although at this time it is unknown which of the three distribution methods will be favored or if, perhaps, a combination of all three of them will be used. 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 the home to allow for easy access. 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 technologies and other new technologies will provide the military with a network for all communication devices in the future.
