Reduce Wi-Fi dead spots and experience WiFi Everywhere using your home’s existing electrical lines
TRENDnetŽ (www.TRENDnet.com), a global leader in reliable SMB and consumer networking solutions, announced today that it will launch the WiFi EverywhereT Powerline 1200 AV2 Access Point, model TPL-430AP, designed to help eliminate wireless dead spots.
The new Powerline adapter utilizes both Powerline and wireless technologies to bring consumers whole-home wireless coverage. Powerline adapters plug into any standard outlet, and use existing electrical lines to create a wired home network. TRENDnet’s new Powerline adapter also doubles as an access point to deliver a wireless signal from nearly any power outlet.
The WiFi Everywhere Powerline 1200 AV2 Access Point supports Powerline 1200 networking with a built-in dual-band wireless AC1200 access point. The TPL-430AP Powerline adapter supports MIMO with Beamforming technology to enhance performance and range. WiFi Clone support duplicates your current wireless network settings for faster network integration.
“The ability to clone your existing wireless network settings at the press of a button makes installation and setup simple,” said Evan Davis, senior manager of solutions engineering at TRENDnet. “When compared to manual configurations, Wi-Fi setup time is reduced from minutes to just seconds.”
TRENDnet will also offer the WiFi Everywhere Powerline 1200 AV2 Kit, model TPL-430APK. The kit includes the TPL-430AP Powerline adapter and TRENDnet’s Powerline 1200 AV2 Adapter with Built-in Outlet, model TPL-421E. The adapters are pre-encrypted and auto-connect out of the box.
