Ik kwam op een site van een bedrijf die data communicatie levert over het elektriciteitsnet. Ze beweren vele malen sneller te zijn dan elk ander bedraad netwerk. Dus inclusief glasvezel!
The advantages to employing power line communications are many. They include: COVERAGE: The power grid is the most extensive “wire” network in the world. More individuals and businesses have access to electric power than any other “wire” network, including hard-line telephony. MODERNITY: The electric grid in most areas of the world is more modern and better maintained than any other wired communications network. STRENGTH: Signals over the power grid can be carried more than 2,000 miles without regeneration—much farther than fiber optic cable (20 miles), co-axial cable (15 miles) or standard copper wire (5 miles). SPEED: The electric grid propagates information faster than any other wired network. Fueled by magnetic fields created by alternating current, signals are pulled across wires on the electric grid at near light speed. CAPACITY: Analog waves, such as those on the electric grid, have enormous information carrying capacity—far greater than any digital system which necessitates analog-to-digital-to-analog conversions, clock pulses and packetization, and far more efficient. SIMPLICITY: Powerline communications are not burdened by telephony’s conventional technologies, including outdated routers, bridges, gateways, legacy switches and software, which slow down traditional telecommunications.
Ben benieuwd wanneer dit in Nederland komt
