The networking specialist Netgear expands its range of so-called Powerline products successively. Now the company introduces the new Netgear Powerline adapter kit nano 500 XAVB5101 We have a very small solution, but to convince the high data rate, and thus should be suitable for the transmission of multimedia content perfectly.
Powerline, so the data transfer over existing power lines without this appears quite attractive for many users as an alternative or complement to WiFi. Even here there is no need for extra cables and the actual data rates are achievable with the latest generation solutions quite respectable.
No wonder then that more and more manufacturers in the networking segment their initial fear of this technology have already taken place and not only specialists in Powerline, so that a wide range in the market exists.
One such manufacturer is about Netgear. The company now almost every week brings new powerline products on the market and can already point to a very wide range. The latest addition is a particularly compact Powerline adapter, which is offered in good manner in the form of a kit, so you can directly produce with the help of two adapters, a data connection.
Of course, comply with the latest solution of the so-called Netgear HomePlug AV standard, so they can be used with any properly certified solutions to an extensive setup to realize.
The special feature of the latest powerline solution, however, their small size. Firstly, there is the Netgear Powerline adapter kit nano 500 XAVB5101 67.05 x 55.11 x 41.91 mm and fits easily into any available wall outlet. Here, however, no electrical connections are carried out as with some other solutions. The adapter is “blocked” so an electrical outlet.
Netgear also referred to the new adapter as a true plug and play solutions that are simply plugged in, and thus are already ready for it. A complicated or even complex installation is not required. Push-and-Secure automatically to a secure connection to be established and Pick-a-plug are using an LED status indicator tells you how well a data connection in each outlet, is so that an optimal signal transmission is to be ensured. Because, of course, the actual achievable data rate also depends on the powerline solution primarily on the quality and type of electrical installation and the distance between the adapters has a direct impact on the quality of the connection. Theoretically, the maximum data rate for this solution, 500 Mbit/s. For this solution should be in the producer as an ideal model for the integration of consumer electronics devices.
Finally, it is also mentioned in this case, that Powerline products are only suitable for those users who use the environment of their hi-fi and AV systems are not extensive power filters and the like. Because if you made great efforts to have a “clean” power “is, but at the same time” modulated data trash “on the existing power grid, it would be counterproductive. Even if one uses such devices on the basis of tubes, then our experience, powerline solutions are not ideal.
The new Netgear Powerline adapter kit XAVB5101 nano 500, according to the manufacturer to the end of March 2012 will be available in stores.
