ZyXEL Unleashes Complete HD Powerline Products

ZyXEL Communications has introduced the PLA4200 Series 500Mbps HD Powerline Product Family for home users, which can activate high-speed internet connections and high-definition media streaming at homes, simply by plugging the products into existing electrical power outlets. This all-in-one kit, with three designs of the powerline product series, brings flexibility and convenience to home users, allowing them to enjoy a high-quality multimedia streaming experience anywhere in the home.

Instead of wiring the house with network cables for intra-connection among several networking devices, Powerline products enable an instant Internet availability through expanded usage from an already existing electrical power grid. By simply plugging in the powerline product where there is a power outlet, the pervasive electrical power system will be instantaneously turned into a dual-power system with Internet connectivity on top of electrical power. Users can then connect computing devices to the powerline product to begin their fascinating Internet experience.  

ZyXEL’s new HD Powerline Product Family PLA4200 Series features an ultimate, speedy data transfer rate as high as 500Mbps and Gigabit Ethernet Technology, allowing users to enjoy various kinds of high-definition multimedia streaming, such as HD Internet TV and online gaming, in a latency-proof and highly reliable manner. Designed with Gigabit Ethernet technology, the Powerline Series ensures the unclogged and stable delivery of audio and video multimedia content without lag or distortion. Such “high-quality of service” (QoS) performance is specifically critical when deploying high-definition multimedia applications, such as Internet TV, Internet Radio, and on-line gaming. 

In consideration of different usage requirements for different occasions at home, the all-in-one kit offers three selections – an adapter with one Ethernet port (PLA4205), one with four-port switch (PLA4225), as well as a dual-function adapter with an add-on power outlet (PLA4215). The options of one-port or four-port provides flexibility for family members, either to enjoy in privacy or to share exciting Internet experiences simultaneously with others; the PLA4215 is a special dual-function design, combing one Ethernet port and a power outlet on a single device. Users can enjoy Internet connectivity while being assured by an uninterrupted power supply.
