Powerline communication technologies with Schneider

In July 2000, Thomson multimedia and Schneider Electric, the world leader in power distribution and industrial automation devices, have announced a global partnership to develop Powerline Communication (PLC) technologies.

The two groups have created Easyplug, an equally owned joint venture that combines their skills in these technologies and builds a full range of PLC communication products for home networks.

Powerline communication technologies use the household electrical system to transmit digital data enabling products to communicate without having to install additional wiring.

The market for communication devices integrating these technologies is estimated at more than 1 billion euros in 2003.
