D-Link’s PowerLine AV2 2000 Gigabit Passthrough Starter Kit (DHP-P701AV) is now shipping. The $119.99 kit includes two passthrough adapters and utilizes the latest HomePlug AV2 industry-standard technology.
The PowerLine kit transforms a home’s existing electrical wiring into a high-speed network with speeds of up to 2000Mbps, making it a suitable solution for high-bandwidth applications like online gaming and 4K media streaming, while simultaneously bringing Ethernet network connectivity to hard-to-reach areas in the home. Users connect one adapter to an existing router and plug it into a wall outlet then plug the other adapter into an outlet and connect it to any wired device.
The DHP-P701AV also utilizes the latest in AV2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology, which speeds up large file transfers. The addition of an integrated passthrough socket ensures no power outlet goes to waste and the built-in noise filter eliminates electrical signal noise for powerful transmission performance and less interference, according to the folks at D-Link.
