Solutions for home networking will be the centrepiece of devolo‘s trade fair presence this year at Stand K17 in Hall 14.

The area of efficient support is another focal point. devolo is showing its customers from the provider segment how they can reduce their support costs and ensure higher customer satisfaction with Powerline adapters that support the TR-069 remote maintenance standard. In addition, the company is providing a look at its OEM smart home portfolio.

OEM PLC adapter at 1.2 Gbps - home networking with 4K streaming

The new Powerline devolo PLC 1200+ OEM model is the first adapter of the gigabit generation. This adapter can achieve a transmission rate of up to 1.2 Gbps, making it the ideal home network product for ensuring the availability of IPTV products throughout the home. Even the flawless transmission of high-resolution 4K content is possible thanks to the gigabit speed. At the same time, it provides a fast, secure and stable connection for computers, consumer electronics and smart home technologies. The PLC 1200+ is perfect for state-of-the-art VDSL and broadband cable internet connections because it provides full performance in each room of the home.

WiFi ac meets Gigabit Powerline: devolo PLC 1200+ WiFi ac

As another new trade fair première, devolo is presenting the PLC 1200+ WiFi ac OEM adapter. This model combines Gigabit Powerline with WiFi ac, the fastest standard for wireless home networks currently available. This makes the full performance of an Internet connection available, even on mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. Several of these wireless adapters can form a shared Wi-Fi network using devolo WiFi Sync & Clone technology in the PLC 1200+ WiFi ac. Integration into existing Wi-Fi networks is possible quickly and easily at the touch of a button (Clone mode). During operation, the wireless terminal devices automatically search for the access point with the strongest signal. In other words, devolo ensures excellent Wi-Fi installation and connection throughout the home.

devolo integrates MIMO technology for reliable PLC home networking

Thanks to MIMO technology, devolo can guarantee the best home network connections throughout a home. This technology utilises all three wires of the power cable—the phase, neutral conductor and earth wire—to provide data transmission in the gigabit range for the first time. In this set-up, MIMO provides simultaneous data transmission via the phase and neutral conductor as well as the phase and earth wire or the neutral conductor and earth wire. The simultaneous use of all three lines of the circuit provides maximum range and stability.

PLC with TR-069 makes customer support more efficient and cost-effective

devolo offers remote maintenance via TR-069 for optimum, cost-effective customer support. This makes it possible for the customer service team to view the customer‘s entire home network and work efficiently when providing support. There is no need to deploy technicians on site, resulting in lower costs. At the same time, the TR-069 allows the installation of global and specific updates on the PLC adapter. This means that all terminal devices are always up-to-date.

New smart home portfolio for efficient home automation

devolo is presenting its OEM portfolio for the smart home at IBC 2014 using Home Control. Based on the Z-Wave global wireless standard, devolo is placing the initial focus on security and convenience, as well as low energy consumption.
