TP-Link presents the AV500 gigabit powerline adapter:
TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced its new AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter, providing industry-leading performance, hassle-free set-up, for an instant, secure high-speed network for the home or office. The AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter provides high-speed streams at up to 500Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters, creating an incredibly fast, robust network. At these speeds, the AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter delivers the performance required for fast, whole home or office solutions to connect all network compatible devices from HD video streaming, online gaming, VolP or any other bandwidth intensive applications.
The AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter comes equipped with TP-LINK’s Quality of Service (QoS) function which prioritizes the bandwidth requirements of data traffic, guaranteeing clear, instant connections of a device, even when other bandwidth intensive applications like VoIP, video streaming or online gaming are running on the network.
The sophisticated Power-Saving Mode on the AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter consumes less power when compared with existing Powerline adapters. When there is no data transmission or reception occurring after five minutes, the adapters will automatically switch from their regular "Working" mode to "Power-Saving" mode, lowering energy consumption by up to 85 percent*.
It also comes with a pair button on each adapter so users can easily set up a hassle-free connection with 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.
“Our flagship Gigabit Powerline Adapter transforms your home or office power outlets into a high-performance network with no need for new wires or drilling,” said Howard He, Product Engineer of TP-LINK USA. “With our convenient network at 500Mbps, the Gigabit Powerline Adapter will transmit multiple HD video streams to every room or office, making it an exceptional choice for an easy-to-build multimedia network.”
