NET-PL-1000M - discontinued


Our latest, fastest and smartest powerline technology offers super-high-speed connections for your internet-gateway, game console, media player, PC and IPTV set-top box in seconds. Data is carried over your existing mains circuit - without any extra wiring, cabling or messy installation.

Powered by Gigle's MediaXtream chip, data capacity approaching 1000 megabits- per-second provides stable streaming of IPTV, movie and gaming content between multiple users and across various devices with minimum lag. In addition, the PL-1000M is compatible with the HomePlug AV specification (version 1.1) and is fully inter-operable 200Mbps HomePlug AV products.

The MediaXtream system also supports meshing technology. This enables intermediate devices to act as stepping stones where distance or signal degradation might otherwise make a powerline data path impossible. 1.8metre network cable included.

Key Features:

1. Backbone capacity up to 200 Mbps with HomePlugAV devices
2. Backbone capacity up to 882 Mbps between MediaXtream devices
3. Switch Mode Power Supply for world-wide compatibility (100-240V)
4. 128-bit AES Encryption with one-touch security configuration
5. Ideal for HD/SD Video Streaming, Voice over IP calls and Online games
6. Meshing capability for difficult environments
7. Simple connections and controls

* 1 x RJ45 for 10/100/1000 Ethernet (Auto MDI/MDIX)
* 1 x Factory Default Reset Button
* 1 x Push button for Simple Connect and Standby mode

Remember, you will need at least two Powerline devices to form a connection. More Gig devices can be added to further share your network.

Firmware version 2.1.7
This f/w has the Amplitude Map(AMAP) for the MX band modified to "notch out" the frequencies 108 to 137MHz (Aeronautical navigation and Air Traffic control) and 209-230MHz (DAB radio). The HPAV band uses the standard EU AMAP.

Includes release notes - uses the standard 1gig utility as supplied on the CD.

These changes have been implemented in response to worries raised by a number of UK amateur radio enthusiasts about interference in aeronautical and broadcast bands. They are NOT required by CE or by Ofcom or as part of approval. This is a voluntary f/w modification which users do NOT have to do.
