MORE: To Whom It May Concern,
I am Seong-hwan Yoon, a senior at Soongsil University in Seoul, Korea. As a student who has been interested in the Electric engineering system, especially about Power Lines Communication. I have drawn special attention to and related technology in North America.
The main purpose of our project is to find the success factors for operating Power Lines Communication and Electrical engineering technology. In order to achieve this goal, we believe that it is critical for us to observe and learn from a successful, leading model.
Therefore, we are planning a research-in-depth this summer, which will consist of on-site and extended studies after our return.
In order to study and learn more about this field, we have done some basic research. During our research, your outstanding achievement and wide recognition of excellence in operating Power Lines Communication. This project will be sponsored by the LG Group, one of the largest corporations in Korea. Our research will contribute to successful design and construction of the new Power Lines Communication in Korea through reporting in reputable academic journal.
We firmly believe that your participation in this research project will contribute to your corporation¡¯s recognition and reputation in Korea.
It would be greatly appreciated if you would approve an interview as well as participation in programs during our on-site visit, at your convenience. The planned schedule for our visit will be between late-July to mid-August. Would you also kindly let us know what programs you¡¯re planning for July and August? Thank you in advance for your cooperation, and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

  • Powerline technology has always seemed to promise much but never seem to quite come to the boil. But Goal Technology Solutions (known as GTS) has rolled out operational 30 meg connections in South Africa and is currently deploying in Uganda for UTL. And come October this year it will be trialling IP-TV.

  • In-home powerline technology signals new era SiConnect has launched its POEM technology, which allows the use of existing domestic electrical wiring for the transport of audio, video, voice and data in the home.
    SiConnect doesn't think the 'best effort' approach of Ethernet-like technologies, that rely on an asynchronous CSMA/CD protocol, can provide the consistent quality of service that's essential for a good consumer experience. So, POEM technology uses a Synchronous Multiple Access/Contention Resolution (SMA/CR) protocol and an inbuilt QoS management structure that delivers 16 different service levels for prioritising traffic.

    The FCC has released the full text of its Report and Order and Further Rulemaking, which requires all broadband platform providers and interconnected Voice-over-IP (VoIP) providers to facilitate wiretaps and traces in compliance with the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA). The FCC declined to extend a blanket exemption from CALEA for BPL or small/rural broadband providers; but it did express its willingness to consider relief from the requirements on a case-by-case basis. It also invited comment on whether less stringent requirements could be imposed on these types of broadband providers.

    United Power Line Council Elects ConEd Executive as New Utility Co-Chairman

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington, DC - The United Power Line Council (UPLC) elected Tim Frost, Director of Corporate Planning for Consolidated Edison in New York, NY as the UPLC's new Utility Co-Chairman of its Board of Directors.

    As the Utility Co-Chairman, Frost will work closely with the Board's Technology Co-Chairman, Joe Cufari, Vice President of Business Development at Current Communications. Together, they will lead the UPLC's efforts to drive the development of Broadband over Power Line (BPL) solutions - using the existing distribution electrical grid and in-home electrical wiring - in a manner that helps utilities and their partners succeed.

    "UPLC continues to be a key forum to allow utilities and technologists to collaborate, identify issues and pursue joint actions," said Frost. "Con Edison has been committed to evaluating communications over power lines for decades, including new 'SmartGrid' technologies, for the benefit of its customers," he added, concluding, "I hope to speak on behalf of all the utilities that are eager to advance BPL technology."

    "We are all excited to work with Tim in his new role as Co-Chair of the UPLC Board," noted William R. Moroney, UPLC President and CEO. "Tim brings a great deal of utility industry experience to the job, including his most recent role as UPLC's Internal Applications Committee Chair.

  • Ethernet-over-powerline service provider Current Communications Group LLC has received "strategic investments" from some new big-name backers in the form of Goldman Sachs & Co., Google (Nasdaq: GOOG - message board), and The Hearst Corporation (see Google Backs Current Comms).
    While Current says it's not revealing any financial details, the Wall Street Journal reported that the round, which included input from existing investors EnerTech Capital and Liberty Associated Partners, LP, was around $100 million.
    Google is saying little about its involvement other than the following statement: "As part of our corporate mission, we are interested in promoting universal access to the internet for users. We support and partner with a variety of solutions for internet access."
