NetComm Releases High Speed Networking Solution that Uses Standard Electrical Wiring to Network Home or Office

  • 09 December, 2005 12:50

<p>NetComm, a leading Australian provider of communications products and solutions, has released the next generation of its successful HomePlug Ethernet-over-power adapter product – the NP285 Turbo HomePlug. The Turbo HomePlug speeds up data transfer rates to 85 Mbps – making it a simple and powerful networking solution for the home or small business.</p>
<p>HomePlug technology allows the networking of computers and peripheral devices over standard electrical circuits in the home or office. This eliminates the expense and complexity of having dedicated network cabling installed. With its increased speed of the 85 Mbps, the Turbo HomePlug means that home or business users can easily establish a Local Area Network (LAN) for both data and broadband sharing.</p>
<p>“The Turbo HomePlug is the perfect networking solution for the small business. The flexibility provided by the increased speed capacity will allow for the building of a stronger network which can move files around quicker and share broadband services to multiple users through power points,” said David Stewart, Managing Director, NetComm.</p>
<p>Another growing trend in many homes is the concept of ‘entertainment networking’ – with the Turbo HomePlug an ideal way to allow the streaming of digital content from electronic units that are connected to the network. For example, users can simply connect the HomePlug to their digital set-top box and stream the content to other televisions throughout their house. Digital content from a computer can also be streamed to other electronic devices when connected to the Turbo HomePlug, such as music to mp3 players and digital video files to a television.</p>
<p>“With the growing ability of consumer electronics devices to handle digital content, products like the Turbo HomePlug eliminate the complexity of various network connections, reduces the amount of cables required and creates a convenient file sharing method across increasingly converging technologies,” said David Stewart.</p>
<p>With its simple plug-and-play functionality, the NP285 Turbo HomePlug is also ideal for use in situations where network cabling can’t be installed - for example in heritage buildings, or structures with solid concrete walls or floors.</p>
<p>These types of environments also pose issues for wireless coverage, but the Turbo HomePlug can complement coverage where physical barriers create wireless ‘dead spots’. Signals can be boosted by connecting a Wireless Access Point into a Turbo HomePlug in the area requiring coverage.</p>
<p>NetComm’s NP285 Turbo HomePlug is now available from computer resellers at a recommended retail price of $279 (including GST) for a twin pack. Product enquiries can be made to NetComm on (02) 9424 2070 or sales@netcomm.com.au</p>

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
