TP-LINK Canada Introduces AV600 Powerline Kit for High-Speed and Reliable Connectivity in Home Networks

TL-PA6010KIT transforms a home's existing electrical wiring into a powerful Gigabit Ethernet network

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 30, 2014) -

TP-LINK Canada Inc. today introduced the TP-LINK® AV600 Gigabit Powerline Adapter Starter kit - the TL-PA6010KIT - transforming a home's existing electrical wiring into a high-speed Gigabit Ethernet network.

With data transfer rates of up to 600 Mbps, the TL-PA6010KIT can easily transmit multiple HD streams, and is much faster than typical Wi-Fi speeds, especially when a wireless signal needs to reach different levels of a home and move across walls.

The Powerline TL-PA6010 adapter is unobtrusive, measuring only 63mm wide x 47mm deep x 40mm high, and comes with a single high-speed Gigabit Ethernet port: connect to any Ethernet compatible wired device such as a set-top box, game console or NAS Media Server for optimal performance of all bandwidth-intensive applications.

Powerline versus Traditional CAT-5 Cabling:
Setting up a Powerline network is effortless compared with stringing traditional CAT-5 cabling throughout a home: simply connect the first adapter to a home router; place the second adapter into the wall socket where the connection needs to be extended (up to a 300 meter range); then press the "Pair" button. In less than 30 seconds, a Powerline network is quickly established, complete with 128-bit AES security encryption.

Additionally, the network can be readily extended by adding Powerline adapters in sets of two (all adapters must be HomePlug AV compliant).

Other TL-PA6010KIT Adapter Features:
The TL-PA6010KIT adapter offers a unique power-saving mode, reducing power consumption by up to 80%; 1 supports the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) for enhanced IPTV streaming; and features Quality of Service (QoS) - a multimedia optimization function - which prioritizes the bandwidth requirements of data traffic, including voice, video and online gaming.

-Data transfer rates up to 600Mbps over the electrical wiring of a home
-Up to a 300 meter range
-Ultra-compact design with no obstruction of adjacent outlet plugs
-Power-saving mode reduces power consumption by up to 80% 1
