•    House Separation – Multiple houses on one transformer will be separated by means of an addressing scheme allowing for at least 256 systems (houses) on each transformer. UPB system incorporates over 64,000 total address space vs 256 for conventional X-10. There will also be applicable encryption incorporated into the DLL layer and if necessary at the higher network layers.


Residential Topography
The following diagram illustrates a typical residence showing the different communications channels. Two channels of communication from the gateway to the devices in the home. A high-speed channel that provides for basic Internet browsing, email, audio, video, telephone, etc. This channel must be fast enough to keep up with the gateway-to-internet speed.
