Triple Play throughout the home - versatility like never before

IPTV, VoD, VoIP telephony and, of course, "normal" Internet access are available to end customers using devolo PLC adapters on any power outlet in your home. Combined Powerline/WiFi adapters from devolo simply use the power line as a data cable to make this happen. The latest generation transmits both via Powerline and WiFi with bandwidths in the gigabit range, making it possible to run numerous online and network applications simultaneously. Another advantage: The hardware can be installed by customers themselves in no time, without any tools or specialised knowledge. devolo technologies such as WiFi sync also ensure extremely convenient configuration.

devolo PLC 1200+ WiFi ac and PLC 550 WiFi - extensive networking via the power outlet

At BBWF, devolo is presenting its entire Operator Solutions portfolio. Special attention is being given to the two newest adapters: the PLC 1200+ WiFi ac and PLC 550 WiFi. The PLC1200+ WiFi ac is the current high-end device, which combines a Powerline bandwidth of up to 1,200 Mbps with ultra-fast WLAN ac. It provides an integrated electrical socket with mains filter and two gigabit Ethernet ports. It transmits and receives WiFi simultaneously at 2.4 and 5 GHz. Due to the use of all three lines of a circuit, devolo range+ Technology and MiMo ensure optimal results in terms of stability, transfer rate and range. The PLC 550 WiFi uses range+ Technology, with one of its key aspects being its compact dimensions. This makes it especially ideal as a remote access point. devolo PLC 550 WiFi provides WiFi at speeds up to 300 Mbps and Powerline at speeds up to 500 Mbps—all at distances equivalent to 400 metres of cable.

devolo Home Control - easy, flexible, expandable

devolo goes a step further in home networking with its ‘Home Control‘ smart home solution. The integrative networking solutions for the areas of convenience, security and energy savings are sure to go over well with trade visitors at the BBWF. devolo AG is using the Z-Wave and dLAN® Powerline standards as a technical basis but relies on an open system which can be expanded at any time with additional hardware components that are Z-Wave-certified.

Home Control is based on the control software, which guides end customers intuitively through every area: from initial use to creating if/then rules and complex scenes including time control settings. It is possible to adjust and customise the look and feel of the user interface for relatively little investment. devolo Home Control is installed directly by end customers themselves.
