HomePlug® Alliance Congratulates IEEE P1901.2 Working Group on Reaching Draft Standard Milestone

HomePlug® Alliance (www.homeplug.org), the world's leading industry group for powerline networking, congratulates the IEEE P1901.2 Working Group on its letter ballot approval of the draft standard for Low-Frequency Narrow-Band Powerline Communications (P1901.2). The Working Group is meeting this week in Munich, Germany to prepare the draft standard for the next steps in the standards approval process.

As the certification and marketing program for the upcoming 1901.2 standard, Netricity PLC will leverage the HomePlug Alliance’s long established programs and members’ expertise in testing and certifying powerline networking products for this new narrowband technology ideal for grid-to-utility meter and other outside-the-home applications. Additionally, HomePlug will promote the adoption of Netricity PLC to foster an ecosystem served by multiple technology vendors. Customers such as utilities and energy companies benefit from having a variety of interoperable products from which to choose.

“With this milestone, progress in creating an interoperability and certification program for Netricity PLC products will accelerate,” said Rob Ranck, president, HomePlug Alliance.

IEEE P1901.2 is an important standard since its long-range, narrowband communications is ideal for utility grid modernization and distribution automation including meter connectivity and micro-grids. The technology is also expected to be deployed in industrial smart energy applications.

“We are thrilled at the achievement of this milestone in the IEEE P1901.2 approval process,” said Gary Stuebing, Manager Engineering, Worldwide Standardization of Smart Grid Networks, Cisco Systems, Inc. “Cisco is eager to integrate the standard in development of new products for the burgeoning smart energy/smart metering market.”

As is the case with other IEEE communications standards, the letter ballot approval of the draft standard serves to encourage companies to move forward with product plans. HomePlug is launching a special team within its Certification Working Group to develop the Netricity PLC testing programs to ensure product interoperability. Companies interested in developing and promoting the adoption of this new standard are invited to consider joining the HomePlug Alliance (http://www.homeplug.org/join).
