Tiny New TP-LINK "Nano" Powerline Adapters Offer Impressive Speeds

Press release date: Jan 08, 2013

New AV200/AV500 Powerline Starter Kits offer 500Mbps data transfer rates in miniature shells

LAS VEGAS -- TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced its new AV200 and AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kits. Using the latest AV Homeplug technology, TP-LINK has packed a powerful device that would once cover an entire wall socket into a product that can easily fit in the palm of the average hand.

What's more, despite being significantly smaller than legacy Powerline products, the devices have not sacrificed functionality to do so. With 200 or 500Mbps speeds (depending on the model) able to be carried over the household power circuit up to 300 meters when paired with their twin adapters to be included in the starter kits, users will have enough bandwidth to power several bandwidth intensive or latency-sensitive tasks at the same time.

Transferring data over the household power circuit also ensures that connections are incredibly robust, perfect for a home media center with multiple devices transferring data such as HD or even 3D video, music and online games simultaneously. At the same time, the devices are incredibly easy to deploy, allowing even novice users to get their networks up in running in a flash, simply plug in and play. This also eliminates the need for time-consuming and expensive renovations previously required for a whole-home wired Ethernet network.

The TL-PA2010 and TL-PA4010will be shown at CES from January 8-11, 2013 Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall 4-Upper Level, Booth 36212
