RF + PLC, Dual Mode Hybrid Mesh debuts in EUW 2019 by Vertexcom

November 5, 2019

HSINCHU, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 5, 2019--

Vertexcom Technologies, a world-class fabless semiconductor company delivering smart grid and IoT communication solutions, R&D dual-mode, RF(radio frequency) and PLC(power line communication), hybrid mesh to meet the needs of smart grid and IoT market. Vertexcom will debut this product at EUW(European Utility Week) on Nov. 12 th to 14 th at Paris, its booth num. K94.

Vertexcom dual-mode hybrid mesh solution is characterized by supporting both wireless communication (RF) and power line communication (PLC) transmission methods, in line with the Wi-SUN or G3-PLC communication standard. The dual-mode hybrid mesh solution has the characteristics of low power consumption, wide-coverage, automatic mesh network, seamless complementary connection. Each node to node link in the mesh network can be established through RF or PLC based on the link quality, providing a flexible, high-speed, stable and reliable dual-channel communication network for IoT transmission, ensuring low delay, zero blocking and high robustness of FAN (Field Area Network) network transmission.

Dr. HH Li, President of Vertexcom Technologies. said that the RF combined with PLC dual-mode chip is a five in one highly integratedSoC (System on a Chip) . The chip consists of microcontroller, RF, PLC, linear amplifier and power amplifier. It has high-performance and low-power wired and wireless dual-mode communication technology. It provides the best dual-mode hardware platform for IoT applications and AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) networks in smart grids. The dual-mode mesh network can extend coverage while maintaining a relatively high data rate. The mesh software stack based on hop-by-hop PLC or RF transmission media selection provides the best solution for coverage, reliability and security in IoT environments.

With the combination of IEEE 1901.1, IEEE 1901.2 and wireless IEEE 802.15.4g standards, and combining with the chips, hardware, network structure, software system design, the unique dual-mode solution can provide the most appropriate transmission path for IoT data transmission, which can be transmitted in the wired and wireless integrated network, and robust to communicate long distance. The dual-mode hybrid mesh solution can be flexibly deployed and interoperated with existing nodes to support a very large network. It can expand the existing network scale, suitable for all kinds of IoT communication applications, including smart grid, smart city, smart street light, smart factory, environmental monitoring and so on.

Key features and benefits of Vertexcom RF + PLC Dual Mode Hybrid Mesh solution include:
