TR-51 Smart Utility Networks


Engineering Committee TR-51 is developing air-interface, network and conformance standards in support of Smart Utility Networks. The committee will focus on air-interface and network standards with wireless mesh network topology, optimized for Smart Utility Network applications.

Smart Utility Networks standards offer solutions for two-way data transmission between devices and back-office systems of the utility provider with a focus on improving services. The committee will develop standards for OSI layers 1 through 4, leveraging applicable existing standards.
