Yitran Communications, a leading and award winning fabless semiconductor company, now offers the first 1 Mbps OFDM and Powerline Communication (PLC) modem especially designed for Smart Grid and other energy efficient applications.
Yitran will feature their full line of PLC networking technology at booth 701 during the upcoming Metering, Billing USA in Dallas, TX from April 19 -20. Yitran's booth will show the IT700 legacy DCSK PLC solution, which has been installed in many AMR/AMM projects around the world. The booth will also feature Yitran's new generation IT900 DCSK Turbo, reaching speeds of up to 500Kbps, and the next generation IT1000 series. IT1000 is an OFDM flex PLC transceiver that implements different OFDM based standards such as Prime, G3, G.hnem and IEEE 1901.2.
The G.hnem standards - ITU -T G.9955 and G.9956 contain the physical layer specification and the data link layer specification, respectively, for narrowband OFDM power line communications transceivers. Those standards have been determined and consented in the last ITU WG15 meeting, and the IT1000 is the first solution supporting those specifications, providing cutting edge performance.
Yitran's IT900 and IT1000 comply with worldwide regulations and are preferred due to their high reliability and plug -and -play total networking solution. This includes the G.hnem standards, which address several smart grid applications such as distribution automation, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), demand side management (DSM), grid -to -home communications, home/building energy management, home automation, vehicle -to -grid and vehicle -to -charging station communications..
More than 1000 customers are currently using Yitran's IT700 technology for AMR/AMM/AMI, load shift, street light control, solar panel control and monitoring, in home/building energy management, smart home applications including white goods appliances, high/mid voltage monitoring as well as other control applications. This experience is evident in Yitran's state of the art and innovative solutions for Powerline Communications with superior reliability while maintaining at low cost for this cost sensitive market.
