LON HD-PLC Bridge Delivers Megabit Speeds Over Greater Distances

(MegaChips)

MegaChips and Gesytec GmbH unveil what they are calling the world’s first LON HD-PLC bridge for smart city and smart building applications. Built to seamlessly couple Ethernet and RS-485 devices, Gestytec’s LON HD-PLC bridge enables system designers and integrators to upgrade to higher speeds, longer ranges, more nodes, and more advanced feature-sets over their existing wiring infrastructure with minimum cost.

 

In 2017 LonMark International adopted HD-PLC as the new channel standard for high-speed wireline networks. Based on the IEEE 1901 and ITU-T G.9905 international standards, HD-PLC combines IP-based broadband communication with multi-hop technology to achieve Megabit data rates over several kilometers of cabling (ac/dc powerlines, twisted-pair, coax, etc.). It supports up to 1024 nodes and is packed with innovations such as free topology, mesh networking with dynamic traffic routing, and crypto-strong AES-128 encryption.

Infosys positioned as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Services for Communications Service Providers, Worldwide 2020

The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluated 12 vendors and Infosys was recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Infosys leverages its global partner ecosystem, CSP-dedicated studio, design tools, and 5G Living Labs to boost service delivery. Innovative solutions such as the ‘Infosys Cortex2’ are driving business value for CSPs.

 

Gesytec’s LON HD-PLC bridge is offered in a DIN rail module optimized for building and industrial automation applications. Capable of acting as an HD-PLC master or terminal for HD-PLC, as well as master for the upcoming CNP-HD-PLC standard EN 14908-8 or ANSI / CTA 709.8., the LON HD-PLC bridge can be paired with a Gesytec Easylon Router Plus to connect an HD-PLC network with a standard LON network using TP/FT-10 or LON/IP.

 

At the heart of Gesytec’s LON HD-PLC bridge is a MegaChips BlueChip HD-PLC System-on-Chip (MLKHN1501) with Multi-hop technology. The SoC combines MegaChips’ Analog-Front-End, PHY/MAC, and memory into a single package to deliver bidirectional, IP-based communication over any wire.
