Endesa, a major electric utility company, and DS2, a supplier of power line communication chips (PLC), announced an agreement through which both companies will jointly engage in technology initiatives to launch intelligent electricity networks.

DS2-powered PLC technology is said to allow telecommunications transmission (video, voice and data) over electric cables at speeds over 200Mbps.

Under the agreement, DS2 will dedicate a part of its R&D work to the development and adaptation of its chips for use in applications including automatic meter reading, telecontrol, demand management, the prevention and diagnosis of errors, and other applications to assist Endesa.

DS2 will have the support of Endesa's specialists to define the requirements in these fields as well as access to the electricity network to test and development of the next generation intelligent electricity network.

In this context and within the framework of the agreement signed between both companies, DS2 will participate as a partner in the CENIT consortium on Intelligent Networks. Known as DENISE (from the Spanish for distribution of intelligent, safe and efficient energy), this consortium is led by Endesa and includes over 30 companies and universities developing various technologies related to the concept of the intelligent network. DS2's technology is included in the telecommunications module.
