Japan : Wi-SUN ALLIANCE and HOMEPLUG ALLIANCE forms liaison agreement [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The Wi-SUN Alliance and the HomePlug Alliance has announced a liaison agreement to support collaboration to enable hybrid smart grid networks supporting both wireless (RF) and powerline-wired connectivity (PLC).

This association is set to empower various industry-leading member firms of both alliances for sharing requirements and specifications for Media Access Control (MAC) and transport layer profiles to facilitate interoperability of Internet Protocol (IP)-based smart grid applications.

Phil Beecher, Wi-SUN Alliance Chairman, said, This agreement is a shining model of cooperation for industry alliances and standards groups with shared interests and member companies. Utilities and end-customers stand to gain from it.

He added, Working together to foster products and applications that are interoperable across both wireless and powerline-wired networks, Wi-SUN and HomePlug will pave the way for hybrid connectivity for utility networks.

Rob Ranck, HomePlug Alliance President, said, HomePlug s Netricity certification program promotes the adoption of the new IEEE 1901.2 powerline communications standard, and is targeted for outside-the-home, smart grid networks. HomePlug is excited to collaborate with Wi-SUN to help the industry create a more complete connectivity solution for utility customers.
