FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62056-8-6 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 13:

Electrical energy measurement and control.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

INTRODUCTION
As defined in IEC 62056-1-0, the IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM suite provides specific

communication profile standards for communication media relevant for smart metering.

Such communication profile standards specify how the COSEM data model and the

DLMS/COSEM application layer can be used on the lower, communication media-specific

protocol layers.

Communication profile standards refer to communication standards that are part of the

IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM suite or to any other open communication standard.
This document specifies the DLMS/COSEM profile for High Speed PLC (HS-PLC)

technologies according to ISO/IEC 12139-1 for neighbourhood networks. The technology is

based on Discrete Multi-Tone (DMT) modulation. It may be used in low voltage or on medium

voltage distribution networks. The PHY rate of High Speed PLC is typically 24 Mbps, however

the data throughput varies according to many aspects of low voltage or medium voltage power

lines. Although High Speed PLC can be used both on low voltage and medium voltage

networks, in this document HS-PLC on low voltage network is only considered.
When implementing advanced services based on DLMS/COSEM profiles such as complex

tariff programs, data security measures, two-way consumption data exchange for demand

response and so forth, the neighbourhood network may become a bottleneck. The HS-PLC

technology minimizes such bottlenecks due to the high data rates available. Moreover, the

HS-PLC technology can accommodate increased amounts of data thus it can additionally

support other applications such as Internet of Things (IoT).

Using the high speed PLC technology specified in ISO/IEC 12139-1 may be subject to

national regulations. However, this aspect is outside the Scope of this document.

system using the terminology of IEC 62056-1-0

Metering devices – typically electricity meters – comprise application functions and

communication functions. They may be connected directly to the NNAP via the C interface, or

to an LNAP via the M interface, while the LNAP is connected to the NNAP via the C interface.

The LNAP function may be co-located with the metering functions.

A NNAP comprises gateway functions and it may comprise concentrator functions. Upstream,

it is connected to the metering Head End System (HES) using suitable communication media

and protocols.

Metering devices and LNAPs may communicate to different NNAPs, but to one NNAP only at

a time.
NNAPs and similarly LNAPs may
