DS2 for smart grids - 23 Jul 2009

The powerline networking technology of DS2 requires no new infrastructure implementation and can network an entire building quickly and easily. This makes implementation cheap and efficient and enables any building or individual home-owner to get onto the Smartgrid instantly.

DS2 introduced a new chipset that can achieve two-way data transfer at rates of up to 200Mbps which provides the stability and security of communication required to operate a resilient Smartgrid.

DS2 is the Spanish company who developed one of the key Broadband Power Line (BPL) standards. This technology was also deployed in the Tasmanian BPL trial. Power companies in the US and in Europe are also using the DS2 technology.
