Broadband over Power Line
Increasing network complexity and a growing number of components or nodes on a network demand higher data rates and force longer distance requirements into the network. Therefore, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) published a standard for Broadband over Power Line (BPL) called IEEE 1901. This standard helps in gathering data from every device in your house and informing you about how much power is used by devices (television and computer), which are plugged in the wall power outlet. BPL allows you to plug a computer into a wall power socket and access more than 500 Mbps data speed for up to 1500 meters.
In addition, this standard can be used to deliver Internet access to homes. You can access high-speed Internet on your computer by plugging the BPL modem into any outlet in an equipped building.
