During WSPLC’16, an international workshop on PowerLine Communications (PLC), Olivier Genest from Trialog has presented our G3-PLC Network Simulator.

This simulator allows to connect loads and nodes, draw cables, and to simulate a G3-PLC network. Indicators such as success rate, latency, etc. can be extracted.

The simulator has been used to compare the network performances of several cyber-security protocols (IPSec, DTLS, DLMS/COSEM) used by a Smart Metering system.

The short paper presenting this project is available here.
