The Solwise Y-Cable adapter supports HomePlug AV mains networking for the transmission of broadband data services and it is also a DC 12V power adapter which can be used to power a wide range of network products.
Using the mains wiring for networking means there is no need to install new network cables or to rely upon insecure and unstable WiFi connectivity. These adapters enable the effortless creation of a high-speed network that supports video, voice and data and can also be used to power the networked device (note the device needs to support DC power, 12V, 2A maximum). This product is likely to be used for ‘HomePlugging’ your existing router or perhaps even a set-top box!
The Solwise HomePlug AV 200Mbps adapters can transform your home power lines into a networking infrastructure. HomePlug is a fast and simple way to connect to the Internet with easy connection between your computers, games consoles, laptops, smart phones anywhere in your home where you have a mains socket.
You need at least two HomePlugs to create the connection. Traditionally, one plug is connected to your Internet router, the 2nd plug is placed in the remote area, such as your lounge, study or kitchen. The Plug connected to the router, takes the Internet signal and transfers it along your mains wiring, the 2nd plug takes the signal and distributes it via the Ethernet port directly to your device. With the Y cable you can bypass this by using the cable to 'HomePlug' your router directly.
Powered by the Qualcomm Atheros high-speed INT6400 chipset this Solwise 200AV adapter is compliant with IEEE1901 and Homeplug AV, allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV devices and other suppliers of HomePlug AV devices.
Enhanced Quality of Service (QOS) also provides the guaranteed bandwidth reservations for multimedia payloads including TV over IP (IPTV), higher data rate broadband sharing, Online-Gaming, VoIP Calls, extending Wireless LANs coverage, Audio-Video transmission across the network as well as Network camera connectivity.
Remember, you will need at least two HomePlug devices to form a HomePlug connection. More HomePlug AV devices can be added to further share your network.
