Up-to-date models of adapters that enable data traffic based on your home electrical infrastructure offer speeds like never before seen in the field
In recent weeks, major communications companies have begun marketing Home Plug adapters that guarantee 1.2Gbps speeds.
For example, TRENDnet began marketing a kit called the machine TPL-420E2K Which includes two adapters that support 1.2Gbps (at a cost of $ 110) And Netgear began marketing a similar kit, called PL1200 (Ownership of $ 79).
Another company that has started marketing the Home Plug product, which supports the rising speed of 1Gbps, is D-Link with the DHP-701AV kit (owned by $ 130). Although this product is based on the same component as those of TRENDnet and Netgear, D-Link claims speeds of up to 2Gbps.
These three kits join similar TP-LINK products TL-AV1200 (Ownership of € 119) And Zyxel PLA5405 (Ownership of $ 100) Whose marketing began several months ago. The 220V version of these two models, including "home delivery", can be purchased at a cost of about NIS 550 fromAmazon England or Germany.
Netgear and D-Link products have not yet been tested in a standalone performance test, but in light of my past experience with Home Plug products, the actual speed is likely to be between a quarter and a third of the product speed.
This assumption increases in light of the performance result of the TPL-420EK and PLA5405 which increase the maximum performance of approx.480Mbps And about 333 Mbps, respectively. In addition, these performance tests demonstrate once again that the dimension of the distance between the adapters and the measurement of the electromagnetic noise on the power lines has a decisive effect on the effective performance of the Home Plug adapters.
But despite these disadvantages, it is worth remembering that modern high-speed home plug products are an alternative solution Wireless concatenation Of routers and can respond to the density and wireless noise around the 2.4Ghz frequency.
