LONDON, UK – 30th April, 2009 – Forget the expense and disruption of installing new cabling, thanks to the new D-Link DHP-303 PowerLine Adapter Kit. This ingenious, next generation device uses traditional electrical wiring to increase network connections around the home, when concrete floors and other obstacles prevent the use of wireless signals.
With more appliances becoming IP-based, such as cameras and NAS boxes, there is a growing need for network connectivity in every room of a home or small business premises. Now this is easily possible with the DHP-303 adapter.
By attaching one adapter from your router into your existing electrical system, you can turn every power outlet into a possible network connection. This means the possibility for networking game consoles, print servers, computers and storage devices throughout the home are endless.
The device is also designed with a power saving mode, reducing energy consumption by up to one third. If no data transmission or reception occurs over a certain period of time, the adapter will be automatically set in the sleep mode to save power.
The DHP-303 is capable of delivering data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps* over the home’s electrical wires, providing high bandwidth Internet applications. This rapid transmission speed makes it ideal for bandwidth intensive applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP calls and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, it prioritises Internet traffic, ensuring that multimedia applications do not experience glitches while web surfing and file downloads are running. There’s absolutely no interference from electrical currents either, as data signals are transmitted at very different frequencies.
For convenient setup, network ID on the device is quickly configured with the push of a button and has a user friendly interface. The adapter implements 3DES data encryption to protect a home network from neighbouring intrusion or interference. With hassle-free plug and play installation, the DHP-303 is an ideal solution to create a wall-to-wall home network.
"There could not be an easier way to extend the home or office network than with PowerLine,” said Chris Davies, General Manager, D-Link UK & Ireland. “Simply plug the DHP-303 directly into the power outlet and it will facilitate fast data transfer to all areas of the premises.” Davies added, “The D-Link PowerLine HD range is a natural complement to our popular wired and wireless networking products, delivering high performance, robust networking that is simple to install and use.”
