Significant Cost Saving
The initial cost of implementation of Billion BPL as the AMI communication network technology may be higher compared with narrow-band based PLC or other wireless technologies. However, high bandwidth and scalable functionalities of BPL add significant cost savings to the maintenance of AMI and implementation of future smart grid applications. BPL also provides a cost-effective alternative solution for last mile broadband access to home and office buildings.

Support Wide Range of Applications and Future Extension
Bi-directional broadband bandwidth offered by BPL supports wide range applications such as real-time monitoring, video surveillance, SCADA,
tele-protection and other consumer services, which all aim at improving customer satisfaction.
Ease of Central Control and Remote Management 
The system supports standard–based SNMP network management protocol that reduces maintenance cost tremendously.

Secure Transmission
Like all IP-based networks, there are many potential threats and vulnerabilities within an AMI system. Utilities are now moving from a world of offline meters to a network of smart meters communicating on a 7x24 basis. Security measurement is an important task in the planning of AMI. BPL provides enhanced security by leveraging standard based DES/3DES encryption to ensure the protection of consumer data and AMI infrastructure.

Economical and Flexible Solutions for Low-Density Rural Areas
In most rural
areas,cellular signal is not readily available as wireless coverage is much lower. Narrowband PLC system provides an economical AMR solution but often lacks the real-time communication capability and critical reliability as it takes longer to collect data and failure rates are higher. Infrastructures built with BPL technology can solve many of the issues described above and provide economical and flexible solutions for data collecting for low-density rural communities.
