Title: DEVICE AND PROGRAM FOR ROUTING PLC SIGNALS
Abstract:
The invention concerns a method and a device (6) for routing power-line communications (PLC) in a residential site (1) equipped with a plurality of electrical equipment (2-4, Ti) that is capable of communicating on a plurality of subnetworks (CP2-CP4) by means of power-line communications. The method is characterised in that it comprises the following steps for at least one subnetwork: - obtaining (E1, E10) a communication request comprising an identifier of a second item of electrical equipment (T2); - obtaining an association data structure of the subnetwork associating the subnetwork (CP2-CP4) with an identifier (MAC) of at least one first item of electrical equipment (T1); - comparing the obtained identifier of the second item of electrical equipment with the identifier of said at least one first item of electrical equipment associated with the subnetwork; - depending on the results of the comparison, commanding (E6) activation of the subnetwork.
