   Future
                      History
 Around for over 80 years
     Telemetry
     Remote connections
     Fiber link (1990)
   Europe Deployment
   2003 FCCs NOI
   2004 Bush’s recommendation

             How BPL Works
 Radio Frequency (RF) injected on power line
   High Voltage (HV) Medium Voltage (MV) Low
    Voltage (LV)
   Perfect system
 Three Architecture for Access BPL
   MV to LV (OFDM)
   MV to WiFi or RF to LV
   MV to LV (DSSS)
