CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A home power distribution system, comprising:

a primary power drop branching into a plurality of circuits, wherein each of the plurality of circuits powers one or more entities in a home; and

a respective wireless access point associated with each of the plurality of circuits, wherein each wireless access point provides wireless transport to bridge between its respective circuit and one or more other circuits of the plurality of circuits.

2. The home power distribution system of claim 1,

wherein each wireless access point further provides wireless communication services to one or more wireless devices.

3. The home power distribution system of claim 1,

wherein in bridging between its respective circuit and a second circuit, each wireless access point is configured to provide an alien bridge from a wired domain associated with the respective circuit and a wireless domain associated with a wireless access point of the second circuit.

4. The home power distribution system of claim 1,

wherein each circuit operates according to a separate power phase, and

wherein providing wireless transport to bridge between circuits enables internetworking between disparate power phases.

5. The home power distribution system of claim 1,

wherein each wireless access point is configured to automatically detect a phase of a power distribution of its respective circuit.

6. The home power distribution system of claim 1,

wherein each wireless access point operates according to one or more of:

WiFi;

Bluetooth;

Z-Wave;

Zigbee; or

Wi-SUN.

7. The home power distribution system of claim 1,

wherein each wireless access point is configured to advertise its availability to a wireless access point designated as domain master, and

wherein the wireless access point designated as domain master is configured to route traffic based at least in part on the advertised availability to accomplish one or both of reduced internetworking latency and increased overall system throughput.

8. A non-transitory computer-readable memory medium comprising program instructions which, when executed by a processor, cause a first wireless access point to:

perform wired communications over a first circuit connected to the first wireless access point;

perform wireless communications with a second wireless access point, wherein the second wireless access point is connected to a second circuit and is not connected to the first circuit; and

provide wireless transport through the second wireless access point to bridge

communications between the first circuit and the second circuit.

9. The non-transitory computer-readable memory medium of claim 8,

wherein each of the first and second wireless access points further provide wireless communication services to one or more respective wireless devices.

10. The non-transitory computer-readable memory medium of claim 8,

wherein in bridging between the first circuit and the second circuit, the first wireless access point is configured to provide an alien bridge from a wired domain associated with the first circuit and a wireless domain associated with the second wireless access point.

11. The non-transitory computer-readable memory medium of claim 8,

wherein each of the first and second circuits operate according to a separate power phase, and

wherein providing wireless transport to bridge between the first and second circuits enables internetworking between disparate power phases.

12. The non-transitory computer-readable memory medium of claim 8, wherein the program instructions are further executable to cause the first wireless access point to:

automatically detect a phase of a power distribution of the first circuit.

13. The non-transitory computer-readable memory medium of claim 8,

wherein each of the first and second wireless access points operate according to one or more of:

WiFi;

Bluetooth;

Z-Wave;

Zigbee; or

Wi-SUN.

14. The non-transitory computer-readable memory medium of claim 8,

wherein the first wireless access point is designated as domain master,

wherein the program instructions are further executable to cause the wireless access point to:

receive an advertised availability from the second access point; and

route traffic based at least in part on the advertised availability to accomplish one or both of reduced internetworking latency and increased overall system throughput.

15. A home power distribution system, comprising:

a circuit configured to power one or more entities in a home;

a first wireless access point wired to the circuit;

a second wireless access point wired to the circuit, wherein the first wireless access point is out of wireless communication range with the second wireless access point; and

an alien bridge comprised within the first wireless access point, wherein the alien bridge is configured to establish communication between the first wireless access point and the second wireless access point through the circuit.

16. The home power distribution system of claim 15,

wherein the first and second wireless access points are configured to provide wireless communication services to one or more respective wireless devices.

17. The home power distribution system of claim 15,

wherein in establishing communication between the first wireless access point and the second wireless access point through the circuit, the alien bridge is provided from a wired domain associated with the circuit and a wireless domain associated with the second wireless access point.

18. The home power distribution system of claim 15,

wherein each of the first and second wireless access points operate according to one or more of:

WiFi;

Bluetooth;

Z-Wave;

Zigbee; or

Wi-SUN.

19. The home power distribution system of claim 15, further comprising:

a primary power drop branching into a plurality of circuits including the circuit, wherein each circuit of the plurality of circuits operates according to a separate power phase.

20. The home power distribution system of claim 15,

wherein the first wireless access point is designated as domain master, wherein the first wireless access point is further configured to:

receive an advertised availability from the second access point; and

route traffic based at least in part on the advertised availability to accomplish one or both of reduced internetworking latency and increased overall system throughput.
