Broadband Powerline

Communication technology for the intelligent distribution network

PPC’s Broadband Powerline (BPL) system turns the power grid into an effective and secure communication platform for digital applications in the distribution network. All data is transmitted in real time, IP-based, securely encrypted and broadband.

The advantages of our BPL system at a glance:

Open Architecture
Use of BPL for additional applications in the smart grid such as big data, grid control or ripple control.
Plug & Play
Fast installation under tension. Easy with common tools, without on-site configuration.
Remote Monitoring
Remote monitoring & analysis of every single BPL connection via our network management system with SNMPv3.
Automatic adjustment to the network. Dynamic routing, smart repeating and meshed-net technology.
Our BPL system uses the IEEE 1901 FFT Access Standard.
Data Encryption
Data is protected at all times via “end-to-end encryption”.
Best connection quality through data transmission via the power grid itself.
Wide frequency band with maximum resistance to interference.
