In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Power Line Communications for Smart Grids

 

NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Power Line Communications for Smart Grids

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01045361/Power-Line-Communications-for-Smar...

PRIME, G3-PLC, IEEE P1901.2, Proprietary OFDM, Proprietary N-PLC, and Other Narrowband Solutions for Utility NAN Connectivity

Utilities have been sending data and communications signals through power lines for nearly a century, but the increased deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) has thrust this type of communication into the spotlight. In particular, metering efforts in Europe and Asia Pacific rely on both proprietary and standards-based implementations of narrowband power line communication (PLC) technology to enable two-way communications between the utility and the meter. These systems open up a new class of applications that will provide both utilities and consumers with greater control over their energy usage.While there is a wide range of narrowband PLC technologies currently in use, several standards-based technologies are being promoted and deployed, particularly in Europe. These systems not only aid in equipment interoperability, but also drive down the cost of future implementations by utilities that choose to use standardized technologies.This Pike Research report focuses on the various types of PLC technology used today in each world region, in addition to providing forecasts and insights into the technologies and standards that will be deployed over the next decade, covering the range of technologies used in these networks, including PRIME, G3-PLC, IEEE P1901.2, and various proprietary technologies. Profiles of 8 utilities and 16 key industry vendors are included, along with worldwide market forecasts through 2020, segmented by region and technology, for unit shipments, revenue, and average selling prices.

Key Questions Addressed:

-What are the leading standards used for narrowband PLC?-Which regions are projected to demonstrate the fastest adoption of PLC?-To what extent will broadband PLC impact the neighborhood area network communications market?-What are the major technical challenges involved with PLC?-How do the various PLC technologies differ, and what are the advantages/disadvantages of each?-What are the forecasts for unit shipments, revenue, and average selling prices through 2020?

Who needs this report?

-Meter manufacturers-AMI technology providers and system integrators-Semiconductor and component manufacturers-Utilities -Technology standards associations-Investor community
