Panasonic HD-PLC 4 IP Core

HD-PLC4 IP core is IEEE 1901-2020 standard compliant and enables high-speed data transmission using existing metal cables, such as control lines, coaxial cables, and power lines.
HD-PLC4 technology is called Flexible Channel Wavelet (FCW). Based on the standard mode compatible with HD-PLC3, in the long-range mode, the bandwidth is divided into two or four channels by reducing the subcarrier spacing. It can achieve a 10km communication distance by combination with “HD-PLC Multi-hop”. On the other hand, in the high-speed mode, the bandwidth is 2 times or 4times by increasing the subcarrier spacing. It can achieve a maximum 1Gbps communication speed in the physical layer.
It is possible to switch between long-range mode and high-speed mode flexibly and it enables users to select the optimal mode according to transmission characteristics.
