Speeding up the Smart Grid: Technique for Delivering More Robust, Higher Data Rate Communications for Automatic Meter Reading


As demands to improve smart grid performance put the traditional PLC (Power Line Communication) modulation techniques used for automatic meter reading (AMR) under pressure, utilities are seeking ways to achieve higher data rates and more robust communications that meet future requirements while maintaining compatibility with existing installations. This paper looks at a technique that allows smart grid architects to improve the speed and robust characteristics of AMR communications while protecting investment in existing infrastructure.
