Powerline Home Networks

With powerline networking, you'll be able to put your desktop PCs anywhere you like instead of being forced to put them by a phone outlet. It will also be easier to buy and network other devices - printers, scanners, DSL and cable modems, TV set-top boxes, game consoles, screen phones and major appliances.

Quality of Service

The importance of QoS is becoming highlighted as service providers look at home networking solutions to extend the broadband pipe they are bringing into homes. These service providers hope to bring not just data into the home, but eventually voice and video as well.

Report on recent advances and introductions regarding the X-10® protocol

"It is perhaps a little known fact that the X-10 protocol has, since day one, included the capability of being expanded. The "basic" protocol includes 256 codes (16 housecodes x 16 units codes) and includes 16 functions (on, off, bright, dim, etc). However one of these 16 function codes basically means "when you receive this code, there's more code coming." These are X-10dedā„¢ codes and are used to provide features such as preset dim in the LM14A."

Home THX- The Best of the Best

"THX stands for Tom Holman's eXperiment. If you are a fan of George Lucas, you might recognize 'THX'; it is part of the name of Lucas' first feature length film, named THX 1138."

How it all started

"The idea of using the existing AC wiring to transmit signals to control lights and appliances was conceived (like so many Pico/X-10 ideas) over several drinks in a bar one night. If we had known then how long it would take us to get to where we are now, we would probably have moved on to project X-11 :-)"

How X-10® fits into the Distribution Automation & Demand Side Management Market

"Brazilian electricity supply, in common with most countries, follows a pattern of peak and low consumption periods. CEMIG (Companhia Energetica de Minas Gerais, a State Electric Utility Company in Brazil) have identified that they actually already have the capacity to support a larger customer base, provided they can spread demand more evenly. This can be achieved using dual-rate incentives or load-shedding."

INTRODUCTION TO THE LONTALK® COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL

"LonWorks networks are intended for applications spanning home and building automation, plus factory automation and aircraft.
