Corinex Communications, a provider of broadband over power line (BPL) technologies, and Indian electric meter manufacturer Genus Power Infrastructures Ltd. have jointly agreed to develop smart meters featuring BPL communications technology.

According to Corinex, the Genus meters will support encrypted communication of customer data, load management, peak shaving and real-time energy theft detection.

The company says the Genus smart meters will connect to a Corinex SmartGrid Powerline Concentrator embedded with smart grid functionalities to enable simultaneous BPL and PRIME/G3 communications using DLMS/COSEM and/or ANSI communication standards. Corinex adds that a portfolio of meter data management systems will also be supported.

"The plan is to bring the Genus BPL-enabled meter, with BPL infrastructure supporting up to 40 Mbps speed, to the Indian market within three months," notes John Evora, senior vice president of marketing at Corinex.
