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 are intended to provide 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.

TR-51 Smart Utility Networks

Mission & Scope

Engineering Committee TR-51, Smart Utility Networks, develops and maintains 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 are intended to provide 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 I through IV, leveraging applicable existing standards.

TR-51 liaises with other TIA committees, international and national standards bodies, and other appropriate organizations, as required, to avoid duplication of work and to foster collaboration among organizations addressing various aspects of smart device communication networks.
