Asoka has announced its PlugLink HD AV and PlugLink-ETH-500 powerline communications (PLC) adapters, the industry’s smallest and lowest power.
Measuring just 76x54x27 mm and drawing just 1.3 W of power, the PlugLink HD AV adapter creates a 200 Mbps backbone network and features a single Ethernet port for connecting to computers. It’s designed for distributing IPTV, on-demand video, online gaming, multimedia downloading, VOIP telephony or Internet streaming services to any room in the house.
Also measuring just 76x54x27 mm and drawing just 2.2 W of power, the PlugLink-ETH-500 creates a 500 Mbps backbone and provides dual Ethernet ports for users, and is intended for connecting home entertainment centers where there is a requirement for multiple devices, such as TVs and game consoles, to be connected.
“These new PlugLink adapters give customers a convenient, easy-to-use home networking solution that is truly plug and play and up in running in minutes,” said Danny Castellano, Asoka’s vice president of marketing. “The smaller form factor has allowed us to reduce the cost of the device as well as the power consumption and we’re excited to share this new design with our customers.”
