Standard for Broadband over Power Line Networks: Medium Access Control and Physical Layer Specifications Amendment 3: Enhanced Flexible Channel Wavelet (FCW) physical and media access control layers for use on any media

This amendment improves the PHY and MAC layers of FCW to be usable for communications on any media. It defines new communication channels in low-frequency bands to extend the communication range and to increase the robustness of communications. This amendment specifies how the FCW PHY/MAC is used for transmission over various media, including underwater communication and near field communication using loop antennas. FCW PHY/MAC coexists with IEEE 1901.1 using existing IEEE 1901-2020 Inter-System Protocol (ISP) and coexists with IEEE 1901.2.

IEEE Standard for Broadband over Power Line Networks: Medium Access Control and Physical Layer Specifications

Physical (PHY) and media access control (MAC) layers of a broadband powerline communication technology for local area networks (LANs), Smart Energy, Smart Grid, Internet of Things, transportation platforms (vehicle) applications, and other data distribution are defined in this standard. The balanced and efficient use of the power line communications channel by all classes of BPL devices is the main focus of this standard, defining detailed mechanisms for coexistence and interoperability between different BPL devices, and ensuring that desired bandwidth and quality of service may be delivered. The necessary security questions are addressed to ensure the privacy of communications between users and to allow the use of BPL for security sensitive services.

IEEE Standard for Broadband over Power Line Networks: Medium Access Control and Physical Layer Specifications

A standard for high-speed communication devices via electric power lines, so called broadband over power line (BPL) devices, is defined. Transmission frequencies below 100 MHz are used. All classes of BPL devices can use this standard, including BPL devices used for the first-mile/last-mile connection to broadband services as well as BPL devices used in buildings for local area networks (LANs), Smart Energy applications, transportation platforms (vehicle) applications, and other data distribution. The balanced and efficient use of the power line communications channel by all classes of BPL devices is the main focus of this standard, defining detailed mechanisms for coexistence and interoperability between different BPL devices, and ensuring that desired bandwidth and quality of service may be delivered. The necessary security questions are addressed to ensure the privacy of communications between users and to allow the use of BPL for security sensitive services.
