From the Back Cover:

Power line-based communications networks: research, standards, applications, economics, and more.

  • The state-of-the-art in power line communications: high-speed Internet access and beyond
  • Maximizing data rates and minimizing electromagnetic compatibility problems
  • Up-to-the-minute coverage of economic and regulatory issues
  • For system evaluators, planners, designers, and technical implementers

Power line communications (PLC) represents an exceptionally promising alternative for high-speed Internet access and data networking. Until now, however, little credible information has been available concerning R&D in the field. In Power Line Communications, leading researcher Klaus Dostert reviews significant technical progress toward high-speed information access over power lines at data rates of multiple Mbps. He explains how PLC can be integrated into existing telecommunications networks and reviews the economic and regulatory issues associated with deployment - including new opportunities in an era of utility deregulation. Coverage includes:

  • PLC in context: historical roots, limitations, and potential
  • Existing power networks and their characteristics
  • PLC networking based on Europe's CENELEC EN 50065 standard
  • Applications beyond Internet access: from home/building automation to digital audio and video from the wall-socket
  • Technical options for maximizing data rates
  • Solving electromagnetic compatibility problems
  • Promising transmission and access methods
  • The state-of-the-art in device and system development
  • A realistic assessment of the future of power line communications
  • An extensive bibliography, structured by issue

Whatever your role in evaluating, designing, or implementing PLC networks, Power Line Communications offers the first single source for authoritative information on the state of the art.

About the Author:

KLAUS DOSTERT has, since 1992, been full professor on the faculty of electrical engineering and information technology at the University of Karlsrühe in Germany, where he leads a PLC research group of eight scientists. His work has led to more than 50 scientific publications and 10 patents in the field of PLC. Dostert was keynote speaker at the International Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications and has initiated and chaired numerous PLC seminars and workshops. He holds a doctoral degree from the University of Kaiserslautern and is a senior member of the Computer Society of the IEEE.
