    Migrating from 1st generation PLC to G3-PLC

    Many utilities in the Europe Middle East & Africa  region have already implemented smart metering and faced the challenges of the rollout. Project management requires specific expertise when the installation, operation and maintenance of a communication network come into the picture.

    Today, the first movers are already planning and preparing for a second wave of rollouts and migrating from the first generation PLC, like FSK (frequency shift keying) and PSK (phase shift keying) based PLC to modern OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplex) technology. Now the main question is how this can be done while keeping the internal processes ongoing and protecting the investment. This article will provide insight into a migration of this type, enabled by G3 PLC.
