Competence by concentration.

Aachen, Germany-based devolo AG is developing data communication solutions for the smart grid under this guiding theme.
Powerline uses existing infrastructure, such as the low-voltage level of the mains network, for data communication. Stable, secure and with sufficient capacity reserves for the requirements of the future. This lets energy providers and operators of grids and measuring points benefit from an efficient and future-proof solution.
In addition to its product for data communication, called G3-PLC Modem 500k, devolo is also developing a smart meter gateway for data security and a control box for intelligent management of decentralised power generators and electrical consumers.

Co-operation with renowned German universities expands the research competencies long-term. As a member of G3-PLC Alliance and additional relevant organisations, the company is a major player in designing the standards of IP-based data transmission in the smart grid.
