This paper analyzes the characteristics of narrowband power line communication (NB-PLC) channels and assesses their performance when used for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communications. This medium has been traditionally considered too hostile. However, the research activities carried out in the last decade have shown that it is a suitable(More)
This paper describes the process of evolution of PRIME form the early definition state to the first implementation of a SoC solution. PRIME is the Draft Standard for Power-line-Related Intelligent Metering Evolution. It is a complete draft standard for a new OFDM-based power line technology for the provision of all kinds of Smart Grid services over(More)
In this paper, the performance of actual Narrowband power line communications (NB-PLC) systems used in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is assessed. The study combines bit-rates estimations obtained from channel measurements with actual frame error rates obtained in a field trial. Performance achieved in rural, semiurban and urban environments is(More)
Telecommunication companies offer customers new home services which requires new physical mediums of transmission, but the addition of wires is not a desirable solution. Last years, new technologies have been developed in order to solve this problem of signal distribution, like home-plug and home-rf. This work presents a communication system based on PLC(More)
