About the Author

Lars T. Berger, Ph.D is founder of BreezeSolve and director of R&D at Kenus Informatica. While working for Nortel Networks, and during his stay at Aalborg University financed by Nokia Networks, he focused on MIMO channel modeling, signal processing, and scheduling algorithms for 3G cellular systems. As visiting professor at University Carlos III of Madrid, he extended his work to 4G, as well as wireless LAN and sensor networks. As senior engineer at Design of Systems on Silicon (DS2, now Marvell Semiconductors), he contributed to MIMO and multi-user enabled power line silicon solutions and extended his area of interest to smart grids. Andreas Schwager, Ph.D began his career at ANT Bosch Telecom and Grundig, where he developed narrowband PLC functions for satellite headends. Today, he is principal engineer at Sony Deutschland's European Technology Center. He represents Sony at various standardization committees at IEEE, ITU, CISPR, CENELEC, Homeplug, and ETSI. He is the rapporteur of over ten work items where technical standards and reports are published, the most recent being the three-part ETSI TR 101 562, specifying MIMO PLC field measurements and presenting results of MIMO PLC properties. He has also led several task forces at international standardization bodies. Pascal Pagani, Ph.D is associate professor at Telecom Bretagne, member of the Lab-STICC laboratory (UMR CNRS 6285), and member of the IEEE technical committee on PLC. He has worked with France Telecom Orange Labs on UWB propagation channel characterization and modeling, short range wireless system design, and development of in-home wireline communications. He led France Telecom standardization activities in the IEEE 802.15.3c, ITU SG15, and HomePlug TWG groups, and participated in the ETSI Specialist Task Force 410 for the experimental assessment of the PLC MIMO transmission channel. His current interests include long-haul radiowave propagation and advanced power line communications. Daniel M. Schneider received his Dipl.-Ing degree in electrical engineering (with a focus on signal processing and communications) and his Dr.-Ing degree for his thesis In-Home Power Line Communications using Multiple Input Multiple Output Principles from the University of Stuttgart in 2006 and 2012, respectively. He currently serves as senior engineer at Sony Deutschland's European Technology Center, where his work is concerned with communications systems and PLC, in particular. He has published multiple papers related to powerline communications and MIMO, invented several international patents, and contributed to the PLC HomePlug AV2 specification and the ETSI MIMO-PLC field measurements campaign.


"Stefano Galli and Erez Ben-Tovim, two experts I highly respect, contributed to this book regarding Smart Grid applications and ITU-T's work on powerline standardization, both's powerline mode and the many variants of G.hnem. It's good to see appearing in technical literature of this sort as continues to expand out into the market, and becomes the home networking technology of choice over any wire."
--John Egan, HomeGrid Forum President, HomeGrid Blog, May 22, 2014

"... acts as a reference document or handbook, drawing expert input from industry and academia so as to provide a pragmatic understanding of the workings of PLC technologies as well as a scientific basis for ongoing R&D activities."
--ITU Newslog, April 29, 2014
