HomePlug powerline networking standard adopted in Smart Grid Interoperability Panel catalog

By Editor


Greentech Lead America: The HomePlug Alliance announced that the IEEE 1901 standard for powerline networking has been adopted in the Smart Grid  Interoperability Panel (SGIP) Catalog of Standards.

HomePlug AV is baseline technology for the IEEE 1901 standard, and more than 120 million HomePlug Certified devices have shipped worldwide.

HomePlug is one of the founding members of SGIP. HomePlug products are used worldwide by consumers and service providers to improve home networking performance while expanding coverage and Wi-Fi mobility.

In addition to HomePlug AV, HomePlug Green PHY technology is also interoperable as a certification profile of the IEEE 1901 standard.

HomePlug previously announced the endorsement of Green PHY technology by major automotive manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Daimler Benz, Ford, General Motors, Porsche and Volkswagen for connectivity for plug-in electric vehicles.

“Millions of consumers worldwide use HomePlug AV technology in their homes every day, and the inclusion of the IEEE 1901 standard in the SGIP Catalog of Standards ensures interoperability between HomePlug broadband home networking products and exciting new smart home applications,” said Rob Ranck, president of the HomePlug Alliance.

“This announcement again underscores HomePlug’s consistent leadership in smart energy and smart home applications,” Ranck added.

Smart Grid Interoperability Panel adopts G.hn as a smart grid standard

Recently (SGIP) also adopted high speed home networking standard G.hn into its Catalog of Standards.

The move is viewed by the industry as another important step forward in the acceptance of the high speed home networking standard and comes just as many companies are beginning to introduce G.hn products into their portfolios, including utilities and service providers.
