NETGEAR Intros Two Next-Gen Powerline Network Adapter Kits

NETGEAR, Inc., a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, is launching two networking adapter kits for next-generation Powerline technology that deliver up to 1.2 Gbps of speed for improved video streaming and gaming. Introduced at the 2015 International CES trade show, the new NETGEAR Powerline 1200 Adapter Kit (PL1200) is available now in the U.S. and in Europe later this month, while its sister device, the Powerline 1200 + Extra Outlet Adapter Kit (PLP1200) will ship in May. NETGEAR powerline adapters offer easy, plug-and-play setup to bring wired Internet access using existing electrical wiring to any room in your home without running long wires or drilling walls to install Ethernet cables, and are especially useful for home theater and home security systems.

Building construction such as brick, as well as distance from the wireless router or gateway, can cause your home to work against your wireless network. Powerline technology is ideal for reliably extending your Internet connection through multiple walls and even at long distances to any room of your home to get the best network coverage possible. Compliant with the HomePlug AV2 standard, the two new NETGEAR Powerline 1200 adapters double the performance over previous generation Powerline adapters while delivering expanded whole-home coverage. Enabled by multiple simultaneous data streams (MIMO) with Beamforming technology, NETGEAR Powerline 1200 adapters deliver gigabit speed at even longer distances, ideal for 4K video streaming, lag-free online gaming, or whole-home video monitoring.
