devolo goes business - New devolo business area for commercial applications


devolo AG is focussing on the growing market for professional Powerline solutions with a separate business area. It is not just trendy topics such as retrofits or Industry 4.0 that are driving growth - many companies are demanding comprehensive networking of all locations, both in regards to cable-based networks as well as WiFi. Here, devolo Business Solutions is positioning its products as the perfect addition or expansion of existing networks. dLAN® Professional has all the professional functions for this that state-of-the-art commercial users expect, from VLAN to remote management.

The business class from the Powerline pioneer

With the new Business Solutions business area, devolo AG is targeting the growing need for flexible network solutions for professional use. To provide the best products for professional users, devolo has not only consulted with its commercial customers for many years - the company, which was founded over twelve years ago in Aachen, also has one of the largest teams of Powerline developers. This is how unique solutions develop that are particularly well-suited for the versatile expansion and addition of existing networks.

A wide variety of sector applications ranging from public areas to industry

dLAN® Powerline technology provides many advantages with its cost-efficient networking. As a result, the technology is highly valued in office and production environments, public agencies and food service. At the same time, even larger networks, such as the industry environment, can be implemented in a cost-efficient manner. As part of reference stories, devolo Business Solutions regularly reports on interesting use cases and demonstrates applications. 

Connection of Powerline and WiFi

devolo Business Solutions represents the intelligent connectivity of Powerline technology and WiFi to provide wireless and cabled networked services throughout the entire company. The portfolio consists of a wide variety of appealing products that can be combined as desired for a customised solution. While Powerline guarantees quick, secure and stable data transmission, which also enables data prioritisation via ‘Quality Of Service,‘ WiFi provides wireless network access for all mobile devices in the company. Therefore, the combination of Powerline and WiFi is perfect for providing the company network comprehensively throughout the entire building.

Topics such as ‘Industry 4.0‘ and ‘Retrofit‘ as a driving force

Key topics such as Industry 4.0 and retrofits are currently defining the IT market. In both cases, this is based on comprehensive networking of industry and trade. With its Business Solutions products, devolo provides the optimal addition and expansion of existing networks to provide Internet and intranet throughout the company and advance digitalization.

Professional functions in focus

devolo Business Solutions offers a comprehensive product range of Powerline-based solutions for professional use. The products have all the equipment features expected by system administrators of professional network hardware. Thus, comprehensive remote management with the dLAN® AVpro manager software is possible. Furthermore, performance features such as Multi SSID or VLAN ensure usability in a professional environment. The classic advantages of Powerline technology such as fast and cost-efficient integration without constructional measures are of course retained for the professional devolo solutions.

Sales via IT electronics dealers and system providers

devolo Business Solutions products are available via trained IT electronics dealers and system providers. For optimal customer support, devolo provides the resellers with a comprehensive training session and certification program, as well as a wide variety of materials for consultation and sales support. "The products for professional users have played a central role since devolo AG was founded," says Heiko Harbers, CEO of devolo AG. "By establishing a separate business area, we focus even more on this growth segment, allowing us to supply customised solutions. Our strengths are in the connection of Powerline and WiFi. The IT specialist dealers and system providers certified by devolo remain important partners for optimal integration."
