High-performance periodic contention-free multiple-access protocol for broadband multimedia powerline communications [electronic resource] /
ABSTRACT: Applications over PLC networks have drawn much interest in the academic community as well as in the communication industry, not only because of inherent convenience (connecting PLC-capable devices requires no new wires), but also because almost all electrical devices have to connect to a power outlet eventually. This technology makes implementing a digital home entertainment center more realistic than ever. HDTVs in different rooms are now able to share digital content from one set-top box without rewiring, or setting up wireless access points. MP3 players can access music data through PLC networks from different rooms playing different music. PLC networks provide an enabling technologies for the smart home.
