Interested in Power Line Communication, or PLC?
Power line communication is a system for carrying data on a conductor that is also used for electric power transmission. It is also known as power line carrier, power line digital subscriber line (PDSL), mains communication, power line telecom (PLT), power line networking (PLN), and broadband over power lines (BPL). Power line communication technologies are used for various applications, ranging from home automation to Internet access.
