It is the power supply that drives your computer, not the Internet connection. So says the traditional logic that electricity companies supply power and telecommunications companies, well, telecommunications. But this year could be a watershed for reversing that logic. Power Line Communication (PLC) allows the electricity grid to supply megawatts and megabytes - and at rates matching or surpassing those of DSL and cable.

As PLC starts to be implemented in Europe, the IST project 6POWER is looking to its future, and particularly to how it will enhance and indeed make necessary the roll out of the next-generation Internet, the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6).

6POWER is featured at the IST Results web site.
