What to learn from the ‘giant’ markets
United Kingdom
 Deployment of 53m gas and
electricity meters by 2019
 Lead by Energy Suppliers
 Wireless Technologies
 SMETS – National Specifications
 BIG 6 implement Foundation
program
 Selection process for
Communication Service
Providers (CSP) and Data
Service Provider (DSP) expected
to close in 2013.
Germany
 Potential of 42m end points
 ‘Energiewende’ triggered massive
change in energy legislation
 Mandate for new buildings,
renovations, consumption > 6.500
kW/h p.a.
 Cost / Benefit analysis expected to
close by spring 2013
 BSI imposed massive data security
measures for smart metering:
Common Criteria Protection Profile
France
 ERDF to replace 35m electricity
meters
 Deployment estimated to start
in 2015 with 7m meters p.a. to
be installed.
 PLC is the technology of choice
 Plan is to start with piloted
solution (Linky G1) and
potentially phase in next
generation technology (Linky
G3) in a later stage.

G3 PLC - Solution Summary
Complete PLC modem for the Smart Grid
(from the PHY to the Application layer)
COSEM
Interface model
Application Layer

Physical Layer
– Support of accepted bands from 10kHz - 490kHz (FCC, CENELEC, ARIB)
– Multi-layer error encoding/decoding
- Viterbi, Convolution, Reed Solomon and CRC16
– 8psk,QPSK, BPSK, Robo, Messaging Mode
– Adaptive Tone mapping, notching and modulation

Application Layer
– Compliant ANSI C12.19/C12.22, IEC 62056-61/62 (DLMS/COSEM)
or other standards used world wide

Transport and Network Layer
– IPv6 enables potential services: SNMP, TFPT, etc.
– Adaptation layer 6LowPan associates the MAC Layer 802.15.4 to IPV6:
- Compression of IP header, fragmentation, routing, authentication.

MAC layer
– Plug and play network management to choose “Best Path” (Full Mesh
Support)
– Time domain and collision management
– MAC Layer IEEE 802.15.4-2006
– CSMA/ARQ
