Power line carrier systems are also referred to as power line digital subscriber lines (PDSL), power line networking or power line telecommunications and are defined by OSHA (Occupational and Safety Hazards Administration) as "communication equipment that operates at radio-frequencies, generally below 600 kilohertz, to transmit information over electric power transmission lines." Increasing demand for power in every business vertical will create optimistic growth opportunities for the power line carrier system market over the forecast period.
