HomeRF is a wireless networking standard which was developed by HomeRF Working group

(HRFWG) in 1999. This standard provides quality voice session in addition to wireless broadband internet access. Data is sent with a 56-bit encryption algorithm and the rate of data transmission is 1.6 Mbps for a distance of 150 feet. The frequency range of HomeRF is 2.4 GHz. The modulation scheme00 used in this standard is FHSS.
