IEEE P1901.2 for narrowband OFDM PLC

Posted: 17 Oct 2013     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:IEEE  powerline communication  PLC  PHY  MAC 

This application note relates a brief history of how the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), sponsored the IEEE P1901.21 Working Group, which developed a complete, robust low-frequency, narrowband powerline communication (LF NB PLC) standard. The standard is structured around PHY and MAC layers, and several coexistence mechanisms are incorporated to ensure that existing and future standards can be deployed in a straightforward manner. This application note summarises the structure of an LF NB OFDM PLC specification, along with some specific real-life test data. Readers of this application note should derive a good understanding of how the P1901.2 standard is structured.
