  • Secure Connectivity – Easily and quickly secure the data on the network by simply pressing a sync button on both devices to enable 128-bit data encryption throughout the existing powerline network.
  • Ease-of-Use – Plug and Play for fast, easy deployment; color indicator lights provide network performance status; automatically switches to standby mode to save power when not in use to improve energy consumption.
  • Compact Design – Compact design with integrated electrical power outlet allows users to keep existing powered devices connected to the outlet and an embedded noise filter eliminates static from the connected electrics to further improve network quality.

“The rapid advancement of technology is continually improving the quality and quantity of content that is available to consumers and small businesses through the Internet in areas such as entertainment and productivity,” explained Shawn Rogers, Market Development Manager at Zyxel Communications. “Distribution and use of this high-bandwidth content in the way it was meant to perform requires reliable connectivity and low latency which can be a challenge in some home and small office environments.
