Numerous Applications

IT Developments continue to improve healthcare and education systems making them more accessible. Smart Meters make energy grids more efficient, and Smart Home systems improve convenience, comfort, and security at home. But how to implement and to get access to all of these applications in a simple, cost effective and secure way is the dilemma.

Power Ethernet has developed an Integrated Powerline Solution which not only creates a robust data network that becomes part of the building infrastructure but also provide and easy way to manage it. Read more about how our solutions can help to improve your business connectivity.

Powerline Sockets are the ideal solution to provide a high-speed, secure network using the existing mains wiring in the building without the cost and disruption of installing additional cabling or reliance on WiFi networks.

Its unique design incorporates four switched Ethernet ports in a standard UK double-gang  power socket with all the advantages of reliability, compliance with health and safety regulations and aesthetic appeal.

With the growing demands for network access, few businesses have enough Ethernet ports to go around. Although wireless may be useful for laptops, it is not robust nor secure enough to be used as a primary form of networking.

Structured CAT5/6 cables is expensive and its installation is disruptive to a business. It is so disruptive that companies often delay adding additional ports until absolutely necessary and any make-shift cabling fixes tend to be a Health and Safety risk.

Installing two or more Powerline Sockets immediately creates a secure Ethernet network running across the existing copper mains power cables.

Businesses benefit by being able to quickly extend their Ethernet network with the minimum of disruption and cost.

Power Ethernet technology enables data transfer at narrow or broadband speeds through the existing wiring already installed in the buildings by using advanced modulation technology. Additional signals are modulated onto the original signals using a different frequency band which allows the use of the electrical lines for two purposes: High speed data network and power.

Key features

  • Ethernet at 200Mbps (gross) across a meshed network
  • Data Security: The network is encrypted with 128bit AES security
  • Connect broadband router to share Internet access
  • Fast enough to stream High Definition (HD) video
  • Supports Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Supports Windows, Mac, Linux and all operating systems with TCP/IP support
  • Compatible with the HomePlug AV standard
  • Can be installed everywhere there is a power socket

Powerline Sockets provide high bandwidth distribution that will allow home networks to communicate to smart electricity meters and give consumers the ability to monitor and manage their electricity usage as never before. The Government is now mandated that by the end of 2020 every home in Great Britain will have a Smart Meter for electricity and gas as the UK is moving to a new low energy consumption economy.

For Energy providers, Power Ethernet is the ideal solution to connect electronic meters in a building and then bundle and send the data to their data processing centres. Power Ethernet is the "no-new-wires" alternative for connectivity  over the existing electrical wiring built in the walls of every building: it can be installed quickly in  parallel with the new Smart Meters.

The increasing popularity of tablet computers as a user interface with inexpensive, easy-to-develop home automation applications are making these systems simpler for both end users and installers, driving the market forward and acquiring a wider segment of the population.

To be able to run a dependable home automation system through the home, a high speed, high reliability network is indispensable.

The Powerline Sockets provide a new class of intelligent high speed networking by creating a smart home backbone network built into the wall using the existing wiring in the building and without the cost and disruption of installing additional cabling or unsightly plug-in adapters. Because almost every room in a house has mains power, the Powerline Sockets can be used practically anywhere which is an essential requirement to have a reliable home automation system throughout the building.

Triple Play combines different services together: high-speed bandwidth intensive applications like Video on Demand with a less bandwidth-demanding (but more latency-sensitive) telephony service over a single Internet connection. To run reliably across a single network requires Quality of Service (QoS) support and secure networking.

Powerline Sockets provide a high speed, highly reliable networking solution encrypted with 128bit AES security that support Quality of Service (QoS). The network becomes the backbone for Triple Play services using the existing mains cabling. This avoids the disruption and cost of installing additional cabling.

With the growing requirement for VoIP telephones on every desk, few businesses have enough Ethernet ports to go around. WiFi is not reliable or fast enough and installing structured CAT5/6 cables is expensive and very disruptive to a business in terms of downtime.

The Powerline Sockets provide a high speed, highly reliable networking solution encrypted with 128bit AES security that support Supports Quality of Service (QoS) to ensure an optimum quality for voice communication with a high level of security.

As Powerline Sockets uses the mains cables already installed in the building it is a quick and simple solution to provide an Ethernet port anywhere in the building without the need for new wires.

An increasing number of TV services are now being delivered via the Internet. Services such as You View, BBC iPlayer, BT Vision, Virgin’s on Demand and Sky Anytime+ offer TV programmes and movies "on-demand" for viewing via a set-top box, Internet enabled TV, games console or computer. To access online TV services and to enjoy the new features and content offered, a high speed Internet connection is needed.

The challenge is how to share the Internet access throughout home regardless of where the Internet access point may be located.

Although wireless WiFi networks may be useful for laptops, they are not robust enough to be used as the main network transport for digital content. Structured CAT5/6 cabling is expensive and its installation is very disruptive.

The Powerline Sockets simplicity in solving the challenge of installing a robust wired network have proven to be the perfect solution to deliver Internet in every room at home using nothing more than the existing mains wiring in the building.It can be installed anywhere where there is power without the need for installing any additional cabling.

With the Powerline Sockets you can enjoy the best quality online TV services anywhere at home!

Essential for monitoring or IP video surveillance systems is to have access to the network anywhere in the building where cameras or other monitoring systems are needed. To ensure optimum image quality a high speed internet connection that supports Quality of Service (QoS) is required.

Power Ethernet provides a high speed, highly reliable networking solution that is easy to install as it runs over the mains cables already built in every building. Its unique design incorporates Powerline technology and other technologies into the back of a standard power socket including network encryption with 128bit AES security, Ethernet at 200Mbps across a meshed network fast enough to stream High Definition (HD) video and Quality of Service. (QoS) 

The increase use of digital signage in both public and private environments as a powerful tool to deliver targeted messages to specific locations and at specific times has created the need for providers to have access to a high speed, flexible and reliable network in order to be able to send digital content from  the central server no matter where the displays are located.

Powerline Sockets provide the ideal solution to connect every display quickly to the network in a simple, cost effective and secure way.

By simply replacing two or more traditional power sockets with the Powerline Sockets, a high-speed secure network is instantly created using the existing mains wiring in the building without the cost and disruption of installing additional cabling or reliance on WiFi networks.

The Powerline Sockets are equipped with Quality of Service (QoS) and 128bit of AES Data Security; essential characteristics to provide quality images and fully secure interactive image transport.
