IEEE has announced the success of the first sponsor ballot for IEEE P1901.2, "Draft Standard for Low-Frequency (less than 500 kHz) Narrowband Power-Line Communications (PLC) for Smart Grid Applications."

Once approved, IEEE says the standard is intended to specify a new generation of PLC technology for transmission frequencies of less than 500 kHz and addresses a host of existing and emerging smart grid applications.

During the initial balloting that closed on July 11, the draft IEEE P1901.2 standard received 96% approval, marking the final phase of the standardization process; the working group expects the completion of the standard this year.
