Join speakers Ehmad El Sewedy, CEO and Chairman, El Sewedy and Alfredo Sanz, Director of operations and technology, Microchip as they explore the evolution and outlook for PRIME technology.

The PRIME Alliance (PRIME = PoweRline Intelligent Metering Evolution) is focused on the development of a new open, public and non-proprietary telecom solution which will support not only smart metering functionalities but also the progress towards the Smart Grid. Power line communications is the most suitable and natural technology to provide the needed telecoms performance, even in complex underground electricity grids.

The webinar will examine the evolution to and from PRIME v1.4 and the improved reliability, robustness and frequency coverage that the new version delivers, as well as the interoperability brought to the table by PRIME+. In order to keep communication channels operating at optimal levels, PRIME Hybrid provide a combination of standardised PLC & RF/IoT solutions to increase robustness – how will this increased flexibility work to power the cities of the future along with the water, gas and power utilities of tomorrow?
