Greenvity Showcases Powerline and Wireless Bridging Technology with Smart Meter at Distributech

At Distributech, Greenvity Communications is showcasing a smart meter range extender that demonstrates Greenvity’s patented powerline communication (PLC) and wireless bridging technology using an industry leading smart meter for multi-dwelling units (MDU). The PLC and wireless bridging technology is based on HomePlug Green PHY and ZigBee standards. It uses Greenvity’s Home Gateway Controller (GV-Controller) and GV7011 system-on-chip (SoC) to bridge ZigBee data and commands from a smart meter to existing power lines as the backbone link to all suites inside a building.

“Smart meters for many existing MDUs such as apartment buildings, condos, commercial and industrial buildings are placed in the basement, metal closet or outside of a building making it difficult to impossible for ZigBee signals to reach suites or apartments at higher floors,” said Greenvity’s CEO Hung Nguyen. “As consumers adopt Internet of Things devices for use inside MDUs, a reliable bridging technology such as the Greenvity hybrid solution will be critical to enable communication with the smart meter via power lines and to leverage the demand response and energy saving programs offered by utilities.”

The PLC and wireless bridging demonstration uses Greenvity’s Hybrii® GV7011 SoC with a smart meter to extend its range by bridging the meter data from ZigBee to PLC in order to pass through obstacles (such as walls and concrete). Greenvity’s GV-Controller module (home gateway), also powered by the GV7011 SoC, is placed in each suite and it can bridge smart meter data from PLC to either ZigBee or WiFi enabling two-way communications between the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the smart meter. Greenvity’s smart meter extender solution supports Smart Energy Profiles such as SEP 1.x and SEP 2.0.

Greenvity will be demonstrating the smart meter range extender in Greenvity’s booth #801 at Distributech, held Jan. 28-30 in San Antonio, Texas. Greenvity will also demonstrate its recently announced GV-Controller, GV-LED and GV-Sensor IoT solutions.

Greenvity IoT solutions

Greenvity’s total turn-key IoT solutions include SoCs, modules, software and mobile apps that enable any home device or IoT device to be smart and controllable for energy-saving and home and building automation purposes. OEMs and ODMs can get to market quickly and have the flexibility to customize and scale up or down the modules and the baseline software to fit specific applications.

Greenvity’s first IoT solutions include the GV-Controller (Home Gateway & Lighting Controller Module), GV-LED (Smart LED Driver Module) and GV-Sensor (All-in-one Sensor Module), powered by Greenvity’s Hybrii® SoCs, GV7011 and GV7013 chips. Each GV-LED module and GV-Sensor module can communicate with and be controlled by the GV-Controller via either PLC or wireless to form an IoT network that mobile devices can access and control wirelessly and remotely. Greenvity Smart Lighting Software suite and mobile apps (supporting iOS and Android) are provided with the modules without a licensing fee. API is provided so that OEM/ODM customers can add their own application software to differentiate and enhance their products.

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
