Power Line Communication – with mesh topology

PLC (power line communication) is a communication method that uses a power line as the communication medium. A system can be built economically and quickly by using an electric supply network as a communication network. For this reason, PLC is attracting increasing interest as a communication technology for smart grids, smart meters (AMI), HEMS, BEMS, and PV panel monitoring. BBS offers a PLC mesh network solution developed based on single chip micro controller that achieves up to 500 kbps high-speed communication as well as excellent communication performance in noisy environments.
PLC Mesh builds on the current technology and makes it better by enabling internode communication to further extend the range and speed of transmission in system where the nodes are spread across a large geography. This in turn would mean better efficiency and the ability to draw more information within the stipulated timeframe.
