D-Link announced at CES that they have developed a new HomePlug v2 Powerline adapter kit (model DHP-701AV) for home networking needs. The Powerline adapter kit is an ideal solution for those with demanding home networking needs and haven't got an ethernet network already installed. With better than Wi-Fi speed and no problem with dead spot and just using your existing existing electrical wiring you can get up to THe 2,000Mbps data speed.
By combining its devolo range+ Technology and the newest Powerline chip technology Devolo said their newest powerline ethernet adapter (dLAN 1200+) can offer data transfer rate at up to 1200Mbps. As one of Europe’s leading networking company Devolo prides itself in offering the latest in powerline communication solutions. The dLAN is energy smart, it uses a maximum of 4.2 watts and if the connected device is switched off the adapter automatically goes into standby mode and saves even more energy working with 0.7 watts.
The use of Powerline Ethernet Adapter has grown over the last couple of years. The technology has also grown to become a suitable alternative to wireless in the home. Unlike wireless, Powerline Ethernet Adapters are flexible, accessible, user friendly while maintaining the same data transfer rate. Some Powerline Ethernet Adapters even go a bit further by offering wireless access. With powerline networking, any wall outlet can be turned into an Internet access point with a fast, reliable online connection.
GigaFast Ethernet Today launches a series of HomePlug AV2 Powerline Communication (PLC) Ethernet Bridges and IP camera with night vision at Computex. The HomePlug AV2 based Ethernet Bridges offer better performance and higher quality networking over existing home wiring.
Broadcom has launched a new line of HomePlug AV2 solutions that offer better speed than HomePlug AV. The new line of Adaptive Home Network solutions includes two new powerline communications systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) that integrate with Wi-Fi, set-top box, gateway and TV platforms for superior in-home Internet coverage and reliability.
Extend your home network in minutes with the latest Powerline Ethernet Adapter from D-Link. The PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit (DHP-309AV) instantly extends the reach of your current home network by utilizing your home’s existing electrical wiring to extend your network to locations with limited or no Wi-Fi connectivity.
The growing popularity of powerline communication in home entertainment and home automation has prompted the CEDIA to launch its first powerline networking accreditation. Developed in partnership the powerline networking manufacturer, Power Ethernet, the course allows custom installers to receive certification in the technology.
Trendnet has release a new 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with four integrated Gigabit ports.
HomePlug AV, HD-PLC and the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) have decided to create a unified front for the Powerline Communication (PLC) industry. The DLNA has decided to incorporate HomePlug AV and HD-PLC powerline networking standards into its new Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines due out later this year. Soon home devices that use powerline to communicating will carry the DLNA badge.
In it effort the spread the good news of powerline communication, the HomePlug Powerline Alliance has announced plans to attend two technology summits in China this year. The HomePlug powerline communication technology enables homeowners to use thier existing electrical wires to distribute broadband Internet, HD video, digital music and smart energy applications. The Alliance believe this is a chance for local Chinese companies to gain insight into these leading edge technology advancements.
