G3-PLC Alliance – opening the road to a smarter grid

The need for an intelligent power grid has become obvious in recent years. But without standards, interoperability and efficiency suffers. To overcome these barriers the G3-PLC specification was released by ERDF (Electricité Réseau Distribution France) in 2009 as part of an international initiative to standardize around a single communication technology. Since the publication of the first comparative performance results against other powerline communications (PLC) technologies at the Metering Europe 2009 conference in Barcelona, the G3-PLC has been of interest to many utilities, standards bodies and other stakeholders of the smart grid. The programme to test and analyze the new protocol and modem was of such interest that ERDF and the original developers decided in early 2011 to support and expand the movement by creating the G3-PLC Alliance.

The G3 PLC Alliance unveils its interoperability process

Paris, October 8, 2012 - The G3-PLC Alliance announced the interoperability process for the PHY layer is completely defined. A first implementation of the process led to a final plug fest where 5 implementations – from Freescale, Maxim, Renesas, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments - were shown to be successfully interoperable. Jean Vigneron, General Secretary, is excited to announce that the interoperability process for the PHY layer is not only open to G3-PLC Alliance members, but also to any new implementers of the G3-PLC protocol.

The interoperability process for the MAC layer is currently under definition and will be completed during 2012; the interoperability processes for the 6LowPAN layer and the overall protocol stack will be defined in the first quarter of 2013. All these processes will be open to the members of the G3-PLC Alliance in order to allow the greatest possible interoperability of all different G3-PLC implementations.
