IEEE Publishes BPL Standard

The IEEE announced that the final IEEE 1901 broadband over power line (BPL) standard was finalized in December and is now published and available for purchase at http://standards.ieee.org/findstds/standard/1901-2010.html or through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library at http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/articleSale/Sarticle.jsp?arnumber=5678772.

Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, the BPL standard is designed for use in a range of applications including smart energy, transportation and LANs in both the home and the enterprise. Networking products that fully comply with IEEE 1901 are expected to deliver data rates in excess of 500 Mbps in LAN applications. In first-mile/last-mile applications, IEEE 1901-compliant devices are expected to achieve ranges of up to 1,500 meters. The technology specified by IEEE 1901 uses sophisticated modulation techniques to transmit data over standard AC power lines of any voltage at transmission frequencies of less than 100 MHz.
