Power line communication (PLC) is a system for carrying data on a conductor that is also used for electric power transmission. It is also known as power line carrier, power line digital subscriber line (PDSL), mains communication, power line telecom (PLT), power line networking (PLN), and broadband over power lines (BPL).
TP-LINK's powerline adapters take advantage of your home's existing electrical wires to transfer data simultaneously transfer traditional power. That means, with no additional wires required, users can simply plug the powerline adapters into existing power sockets and establish networking infrastructure in a flash. With this innovative new technology, messy cabling and wireless dead spots are now things of the past.
The advantage of Powerline devices:
1. HD video streaming
With advanced HomePlug AV technology, TP-LINK powerline adapters provide users with high-speed data transfer rates up to 200Mbps, even 500Mbps, far beyond normal 11g wireless speeds. Now you can have data, voice, online gaming, HD video transferred at the same time, meeting all of your entertainment demands simultaneously.
2. More reliable than wireless networking
Wireless networks are prone to dead spots, weak signals, and fluctuating speeds. And they're subject to interference from common elements in any household such as walls, cordless phones, microwaves, and more. TP-LINK powerline adapters offer more stable connections using actual electrical wires, ensuring users experience no dead spots, even in the basement or a corner room on the second floor.
