The G3 Alliance is a consortium created in 2011 to standardize and promote G3-PLC technology globally. The technology, standardized under ITU-T G.9903, uses the existing powerline infrastructure for cost-effective data communication. The main applications of the technology include smart metering, smart grid management, street lighting, smart cities, home automation systems, railway control systems and other kinds of industrial applications. Today, the G3-PLC Alliance counts more than 90 members that are international key stakeholders of the smart grid ecosystem, including utilities, semiconductor companies, equipment manufacturers and industrial companies. Together, they support, promote and implement the G3-PLC technology and established an industrial certification program to guarantee for the interoperability of devices from different manufacturers. Over 80 million G3-PLC products have already been deployed in more than 30 countries around the world. At Enlit Europe we will also show the first certified hybrid PLC&RF devices!
