Yitran to Feature HomePlug Command and Control Energy Management Products at CeBIT 2008

Beer -Sheva, ISRAEL - February 2008 - Yitran Communications, Ltd., a leading provider of PLC (Power Line Communication) technology, will exhibit at CeBIT 2008 in Hannover, Germany on March 4 -9, 2008.


Yitran will be located in Hall 13, Stand number B56 as part of the HomePlug Pavilion where it will present its patented IT800 IC technology and a preview of their new IT700 IC, which will lower cost and foot print by 50%. Yitran will also feature HomePlug Command and Control (HomePlug C&C) V1.0, an industry standard based on Yitran's IT800 transceiver technology.

The HomePlug C&C V1.0 work group have ratified the PHY and MAC layer and completed work on the network layer. Their work continues with the profiles and session layer as well as a final submission for the compliance testing and interoperability program.

HomePlug C&C has four key areas of impact: power management solutions to save money and conserve energy; remote monitoring and control that delivers convenience through remote accessibility; safety and security features to protect from fire, theft and natural hazards; and healthcare monitoring solutions to save lives and bring peace of mind. Energy efficiency applications such as networking thermostats in homes and demand control, remotely managing high power appliances, will assure a more environmentally friendly future.

The HomePlug C&C standard is Green Tech enabled, offering communication and networking for a nearly unlimited variety of command and control applications including Automated Meter Reading and Management (AMR/AMM/AMI) as well as other Smart Grid applications such as Peak Demand Control. The result is a more efficient use of resources as well as consumer friendly incentives such as low tariff periods, competitive pricing, more accurate billing and so forth.
