D-Link have announced a new PowerLine kit with AV2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology for turning existing electrical wiring into a high-speed wired network.
The D-Link PowerLine AV2 2000 Gigabit Passthrough Starter Kit features two passthrough adapters which can connect a router to any wired device over electrical wiring with speeds of up to 2000Mbps.
“The use of PowerLine products has been growing at a rapid rate over the last couple of years for good reason,” said D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon.
“PowerLine users no longer have to base where they place important devices, such as Smart TVs or gaming consoles, on where they can get a reliable connection from their router. In fact the new PowerLine AV2 2000 Gigabit Passthrough Kit offers a simple, affordable and discrete solution by transforming every electrical outlet in the home into a potential network connection, making even the hardest to reach areas viable for networking activities.”
Since both adapters feature passthrough sockets, no power outlets need to be wasted, while the built-in noise filter eliminates electrical signal noise for less interference and improved network performance.
Up to 16 adapters in total can be used at a time, and a power saving mode can help to reduce power consumption by up to 85% when not in use.
D-Link’s PowerLine AV2 2000 Gigabit Passthrough Kit (DHP-P701AV) is available now on the D-Link website and from authorised D-Link retailers and resellers.
