ABSTRACT Although the system of the individual purpose exists in a home, a network for home use does not exist. There are three important
problems to home network realization. It is cost’s being cheap, and there being no necessity for construction, and being able
to communicate anywhere in a network. In order to realize this, the network system which works simultaneously two communication
systems, wireless (IEEE 802.15.4Zigbee) and wired (Power line carrier communication ; PLC ) communication, was examined .

    ABSTRACT: We propose a mutually complementary wireless and wired network, developed for residences, and adapted for a larger university school building, resulting in practical, realizable communication. The mutually complementary wireless and wired network provided 100% network communication performance in the homes studied, the largest of which was a three-stories 200- square-meter steel-reinforced-concrete building [1]. Experimental evaluation showed that, when the communications system without routing tested on residences was used for a steel-reinforced-concrete university building of 5,365 square meters, with four-stories and one basement level, the system provided 1.0% of its full network communication performance, suggesting that the communication system used for residences would not be applicable to largescale university buildings. We attempted to introduce a communication system with simpler routing, simulating 450 nodes. The simulation showed that only 11 nodes would require 29 times the amount of routing at maximum, with the number of routes exceeding 400 million, suggesting that a simple communication system such as this could not reduce function loads at terminals. Noting that the university building studied (Tokai University Shonan School No. 9) consists of two types of units -- small classrooms and research/study rooms of 100 square meters or less and long passageways -- we introduced a simple network that considered each unit. The design evaluation of this simple communication system brings about the possibility of practical application, which we call a "combined communication method" of mutually complementary wireless and wired networks.

    ABSTRACT: Networks, whether wired or wireless, used at homes are now 100% mutually complementary in terms of communication performance, but that performance can be as low as 4.1% if used in a school building, for example. The objective of the study described herein is to improve communication performance using additional routing capability. A simulator was developed to ascertain and evaluate the characteristics of such a mutually complementary network with an added routing capability. Assuming that we have up to 15 s available for practical use of communication, such a judgment was made that up to 11 nodes for every five-story building was about reasonable to use for practical uses of communications. With that fact in mind, a mutually complementary network was shown to be available for use in a school building by allocating every domain unit of 11 nodes to the entire building.

    ABSTRACT: The “mutual complement network by wireless and wired systems” has been studied for possible application to home network. The evaluation of the mutual complement network in a small-scale building has revealed that the home application is reasonably possible. In this network, the communication performance values of both the wireless and wired systems distribute independently from the other over a wide area in a small-scale building compared with those in a conventional home house. The method of power supply, electrical apparatus used and the building structure are responsible for the results.
