Working Group: Standard for Smart Grid Powerline Communication (COM/PLC/SGPLC)

Title: Standard for Medium Frequency (less than 15 MHz) Power Line Communications for Smart Grid Applications

Scope: This standard specifies Physical (PHY) and Media Access Control (MAC) layers of the medium frequency band (less than 15 MHz) broadband powerline communication technology for smart grid applications (SGPLC) based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) (e.g. FTT and/or wavelet OFDM). This standard coexists with IEEE 1901 and 1901.2. The standard addresses the necessary security requirements that assure communication privacy and allow use for mission critical and security sensitive services and applications. This standard also defines the approach that is geared towards achieving an extended communication range in comparison with the existing power line communication technologies operating in similar frequency bands.
