HD-PLC Launches Certification of IEEE Standard Devices

UPDATE : 31 May, 11

HD-PLC Alliance (note 1) has begun certification of PLC-related devices that conform to a new standard (IEEE 1901, Broadband over Power Lines, PHY/MAC) for power line communication (PLC) that was announced late last year by the IEEE Standards Association (note 2). Having received recommendations on the necessity of coexistence for in-home broadband PLC from the United States’ National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which was currently formulating guidelines on smart grids and interoperability, globally we were the first to publish (note 3) in April of 2011 certification test guidelines that made IEEE 1901 a requirement.
