THE NEW HIGH-SPEED NETWORK IS HERE
Faster, more secure, lower cost. HD-PLC sets a new standard for smart city applications.
The wait is over. Get blazing speeds, and faster deployments, with HD-PLC.
Megabit data rates. IP-based mesh networking. Crypto-strong encryption. These are just a few of the many reasons why LonMark chose HD-PLC as the new standard for long-range, high-speed wireline communications. Other industrial protocols like KNX and BACnet will soon follow suit to give their users access to the same cost savings, performance upgrade, and deployment simplicity as LonMark customers. HD-PLC gives you plenty of bandwidth for your smart building and smart city applications—without the cost or headaches of deploying new wiring infrastructure.
What is HD-PLC?
HD-PLC is an international standard based on IEEE 1901 and ITU-T G.9905 for long-range, high-speed communication over any wire. It uniquely combines a high-frequency range (2MHz to 28MHz) with wavelet-based OFDM modulation to achieve PHY speeds up to 240Mbps over any wired channel including twisted pair, COAX, Ethernet, phone, and powerlines. Your customers will enjoy more bandwidth, more security, and more simplicity. And you’ll love the advantage it gives you over other legacy wireline technologies.
HD-PLC is an open standard supported by multiple vendors. Interoperability is ensured by the HD-PLC Alliance certification program. Additionally, the protocol meets the CENELEC EN 50561-1 standard for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), enabling you to deploy PLC solutions without worrying about interference with European broadcasting services.
Build larger, more robust networks with multihop technology.
HD-PLC is ideal for large industrial IoT networks. Built-in multihop functionality enables any node to act as a repeater to extend network range and robustness. HD-PLC supports up to 10 hops, enabling you to expand your network to up to 1024 nodes.
Plug-and-play mesh networking.
No more time-consuming network planning or configuration. With HD-PLC, you simply plug in your devices. The network takes care of the rest, automatically calculating route cost and dynamically optimizing traffic. Deployments have never been easier, or faster.
Protect your network with cryptostrong cybersecurity.
Low-bandwidth solutions don’t just rob you of speed—they leave you vulnerable to cyberattacks. That’s where HD-PLC excels. Crypto-strong AES-128 encryption is built in, so you can keep your network safe from behind-the-firewall attacks.
