The only authorized book explaining the HomePlug networkingstandards
HomePlug is a growing technology for creating high-speed PowerLine Communication (PLC) networks by transmitting data over in-homeor in-office power lines. Users only need to plug adapters intowall outlets to create an instant network of computers, printers,routers, home entertainment devices, and appliance controlsystems.
HomePlug AV and IEEE 1901: A Handbook for PLC Designers andUsers provides for the first time an opportunity for non-members ofthe HomePlug Alliance to gain in-depth insight into the design andoperation of the HomePlug standards. Offering a clear and simpledescription of the standards, this groundbreaking resource presentsHomePlug AV and the associated IEEE 1901 standards in terms morereadily understood by a much wider audience, including nontechnicalmanagers, engineers, students, and HomePlug designers.
The book details the many benefits of HomePlug AV,including:
* An affordable, secure alternative or complement toWiFi--especially in buildings where WiFi reception is poor orrunning new network wires is impractical
* Higher potential data transmission rates up to 200 Mbps
* Support for multimedia applications such as HDTV and VoIP
The book also provides an overview of the HomePlug Green PHYstandard that is targeted for use in smart energy applications, andthe HomePlug AV 2.0 standard that operates at up to 1.5 Gbps.
An essential tool for designers of HomePlug devices, networkadministrators, and individual users of HomePlug networks who needto understand the features and capabilities of HomePlug, HomePlugAV and IEEE 1901: A Handbook for PLC Designers and Users will alsoprove useful for researchers in academia and the power linecommunications industry.
