Enabling mesh networking in advanced metering

Keywords:G3-PLC? International Telecommunications Union? advanced metering?

Mesh networking overcomes limits in communication. Instead of connecting a network node only to the coordinator node (sometimes called the concentrator), mesh networking connects each node in a network with all other nodes within communication range. Then when a message cannot reach an addressed node directly, other nodes automatically repeat the message until it does reach its destination.

The application note addresses how G3-PLC, a powerline communications protocol approved by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), enables mesh networking in advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployments.
