Power Line Communication (PLC) is a broadband telecommunication technology able to use the electricity networks for data transmission purposes, allowing any user connected to the power grid to benefit from a great number of services easily and avoiding expensive and pollutant new wiring.
The strategic objective of this project is to offer low-cost broadband access service to ALL European citizens using the most ubiquitous infrastructure, Power Lines. Overcoming all barriers that prevent today PLC from being a mass commercial technology that competes effectively with existing technologies through the development of a new PLC generation integrated with existing backbone technologies and EMC full compliant.
All efforts will be focused on obtaining: an improved performance in transmission speed, a ready- to-sell and low-cost product, a complete system specification, an unique international regulation, full inter-operability with existing back haul and in-home technologies and a higher market share.
OPERA will contribute to develop the European Information Society in concordance with the proposed objectives in the plan eEurope 2005 by:
- Increase of competition in access network.
- Fostering Mass Services availability.
- European Industry Leadership.
