What's HD-PLC?

IEEE 1901 HD-PLC Complete technical over view

HD-PLC (power line communication) is a new communications technology that transmits digital information over power lines that used to only deliver electrical power.

HD-PLC features
1) No wiring needed (all power plugs perform as information plugs)
2) Easy connection (just plug-in and connect to network)
3) Achieving AV transmission (with high communication throughput and realizing QoS)

From power outlets to information outlets!

Instead of Ethernet cables, existing electrical cables in our home can be used to create a home network; no construction requred.

In addition to PLC adaptors and network routers, you will be able to connect AV, Security, and Home appliances to the network as well.
