TRENDnet presents the Powerline 500 AV Nano Adapter, claiming it's the world's smallest 500Mbps powerline adapter with a built-in electrical outlet.
TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, announces today from 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, the availability of the Powerline 500 AV Nano Adapter with Built-In Outlet, model TPL-407E. This adapter offers a stable high performance network connection to a smart TV, media player, receiver, or computer.
The TPL-407E comes in the smallest form factor offered by any brand to date. Two adapters are needed to get started. Network one adapter to a router and plug another adapter into any outlet on the same electrical system for instant high speed network access. The adapters automatically connect with no CD installation required. Plug an adapter into a wall socket, then plug in a power strip into the built in electrical outlet on the front of the TPL-407E to power devices such as a smart TV, receiver, game console, and media player.
The adapter comes with a pre-encrypted network signal-for additional security, press the Sync button to change existing encryption keys. Embedded power saving technology lowers power consumption by up to 70% in standby mode-resulting in measurable power savings, given that the adapter is always plugged in.
"The TPL-407E offers a stable high performance network connection to your smart TV, receiver, or game console," stated Zak Wood, director of global marketing for TRENDnet. "With so many devices needing to be plugged in, the built in electrical outlet on the front of the adapters is a tremendous benefit."
