About G3-PLC G3-PLC is a global, open powerline communication protocol specifically designed for smart grid communications and recently standardized by the ITU. It enables smart meter management, control and monitoring of the electrical distribution network, energy management, electric vehicle charging, lighting control and other smart grid applications. The key objectives of the G3-PLC Alliance are to certify the compliance of new G3-PLC products to the specifications, to insure their interoperability, and to help manufacturers and end users to develop and use the G3-PLC technology efficiently.

The G3-PLC specification is designed to operate in 10-490 kHz frequency bands and is compliant with CENELEC, FCC and ARIB regulatory bodies. It was designed to meet the following requirements: -- Robustness: communications profile suited to operate in severe noisy environments such as low-voltage lines, long-range communications in medium-voltage lines.

-- Performance: bi-directional digital communications with data rates up to 300 Kbps -- Simplicity: simple to implement, install (Plug-and-Play), operate and maintain -- Security: it offers a safe environment using an AES-128 cryptography engine -- Scalability: Supports IPv6 for new internet-based energy management systems and applications for utilities and DSO's to better manage their assets on the grid.

-- Cost: Long range communication and reliable data transmission reduces the number of repeaters. Plug-and-Play architecture and intelligent mesh networking reduces installation time.
