BPLC are not subject to the same environmental and coverage restrictions as wireless technology. The independence of power line communication allows extremely stable and uninterrupted connectivity with greater service outreach in projecting and installing the communication modules suitable for the large scale of utility networks. Unlike wireless systems, there is no need to worry about signal interruption and limited bandwidth capacity. Our BPLC provides substantial bandwidth, solid resilience to signal disruption and is highly flexible to function as a strong auto-repeater. Given the independence of signal reception, BPLC enables enhanced meter reading performance together with the routing functionality to achieve an extensive range of signal outreach.
In Billon’s PLC auto-repeating solution, one concentrator can handle up to hundreds of thousands of meters. In wireless systems like radio and Zigbee, the rate of severe signal disruptions caused by unpredictable objects (wall, tree, concrete, etc.) and noise is higher than 60%. These wireless technologies also take a prolonged time to resume the transmission and are much unstable and inflexible compared to BPLC. BPLC auto-repeating network is built collaboratively with repeaters, concentrators, and head-ends; one device bridging after each other offers ultra connectivity and reliable network infrastructure.
