FCC Finalizes Rules for Broadband from Wall Sockets

The Federal Communications Commission affirmed its rules for Broadband over Power Lines with minor modifications. The new rules provide a balance between providing for Access BPL technology that has potential applications for broadband and Smart Grid while protecting incumbent radio services against harmful interference. The rules have been modified “to increase the required notch filtering capability for systems operating below 30 MHz from 20 to 25 dB; establish a new alternative procedure for determining site-specific extrapolation factors...; and adopts a definition for the ‘slant-range distance’ used in the BPL measurement guidelines to further clarify its application.”

BPL allows electrical utilities to deliver broadband service over medium voltage lines to homes and businesses through electrical wall sockets. It also allows them to monitor power usage in the form of Smart Grid applications.
