(Rushden, UK) 1 Sept, 2009 - The latest addition to Belkin’s high performance Gigabit networking portfolio, the new Gigabit Powerline HD Adaptor, allows you to create an ultrafast HD entertainment network through your home’s existing electrical wiring. Powered by Gigle Semiconductor’s mediaxtream™ chip, Belkin’s Gigabit Powerline provides a secure, stable networking signal anywhere in the home—even for areas that are hard to reach with wireless connections.
Gigabit networking offers the fastest transfer speeds currently available and with many of the devices in our home’s now supporting Gigabit networking, Belkin’s new Gigabit Powerline will allow you to transfer your data between 4 and 5 times faster than standard network speeds.
Because of its Gigabit speeds and consistent connection, Gigabit Powerline reduces online gaming latency and provides greater bandwidth, making it ideal for online PC gaming and ultrafast high-quality transmission of multiple video streams. While the current fastest powerline technology runs at 200Mbps, Gigabit Powerline delivers content at speeds of up to 1000Mbps.
Used in conjunction with Belkin’s new high performance Gigabit switches, Gigabit Powerline delivers the fastest networking speeds allowing you to make the most of your home entertainment set-up, connecting devices such as your X-Box or Play Station for high speed gaming, and your HDTV, set-top box and Blu-Ray Live.
To complete the Gigabit portfolio, Belkin’s Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter allows your notebook or desktop computer to connect to a gigabit network. The Gigabit USB 2.0 Adapter allows your computer to share large files over your network quickly and reliably. It can easily be plugged into the USB port of your laptop or desktop PC. USB 2.0 speed at 480 Mbps transferred into GIG speed at 1000 Mbps.
With simple plug-and-play connectivity setting up a powerline network is easy.
- Plug one end of the adapter into an available wall socket
- Connect the other end to any device with an available Ethernet port (RJ45), such as a gaming console, set-top box, or computer.
