Significant Cost Saving
The initial cost of implementation of Billion Broadband PLC L as the AMI communication network
technology may be higher compared with narrow-band based PLC or other wireless technologies.
However, high bandwidth and scalable functionalities of broadband PLC add significant cost savings
to the maintenance of AMI and implementation of future smart grid applications. Broadband PLC also
provides a cost-effective alternative solution for last mile broadband access to home and office

Support Wide Range of Applications and Future Extension
Bi-directional broadband bandwidth offered by broadband PLC supports wide range applications such

as real-time monitoring, video surveillance, SCADA, tele-protection and other consumer services,
which all aim at improving customer satisfaction.

Ease of Central Control and Remote Management 
The system supports standard–based SNMP network management protocol which reduces
maintenance cost tremendously.

Secure Transmission
Like all IP-based networks, there are many potential threats and vulnerabilities within an AMI network.
Utilities are now moving from a world of offline meters to a network of smart meters communicating on
7x24 basis. Security measurement is an important task in the planning of AMI. PLC provides
enhanced security by leveraging standard based DES/3DES encryption to ensure the protection of
consumer data and AMI infrastructure.

Economical and Flexible Solutions for Low-Density Rural Areas
In most rural areas, cellular 
signals are not easily accessible as wireless coverage is much lower.
Narrowband PLC system provides
an economical AMR solution but often lacks the real-time
communication capability and critical reliability as it takes longer to collect data and failure rates are
higher. Infrastructures built with broadband PLC technology can solve many of the issues described
above and provide economical and flexible solutions for data collecting 
for low density rural
