"Powerline networking between modems and set-top boxes is being used today by many broadband service providers to reduce capital expenses and support costs associated with delivering new triple play and IPTV services,” said Kurt Scherf, vice president, principal analyst, Parks Associates. "More than 50 operator/service providers have deployed HomePlug AV powerline networking solutions as a means to expand services. These providers require a migration path to a much higher performance powerline technology to meet future bandwidth demands while maintaining interoperability with their current HomePlug AV installations and future IEEE1901 products." Major powerline enhancements the TWG selected for inclusion in the developing HomePlug AV2 specification include: • MIMO (Multiple-Inputs Multiple-Outputs) offers significant increases in link throughput and range without requiring additional spectrum or transmit power. MIMO allows the data signal to propagate from multiple outputs to multiple inputs implementing advanced transmission coding schemes which will increase capacity and enable more reliable and expanded home coverage. This is similar to the 802.11n and 802.16e which use MIMO solutions with wireless products to extend performance. • Increased MAC (Medium Access Control) efficiencies that lower overhead and expand throughput • Increased operating spectrum: the specification will expand operations into an additional spectrum, up to an order of magnitude beyond current powerline technology. This increased bandwidth will further improve performance. • Extending coverage via repeating and routing technology in networks of three or more nodes
What was the original speed? 5 times faster isn't very impressive if the original speed was 1Kbps lol
LOL i would like to know the original speed as well. but i got a number of 200Mbps from google, not sure if its correct or not.
I've been seeing 85-200.... which would make these pretty quick... not bad!
So if this promises to be a big boost like the jump to T1 or CAT5 then this could be exciting! especially when it comes down to streaming content over you home network! Even something cool like using the other computers in the house as a render farm without any loss of data?
Well it would be a great alternative to running cable... tho personally I think i'd rather run the cable :-)
this would be great , plug and play . no cables running along the floor or drilling through the walls to route cables only to have to reroute again when you change rooms or move computers . 5 x nothing is nothing , give us a hint , are we going to be in the mb range or dial up ?
*puts on conspiracy cap
This will make it easier for the government to spy on you...lol not that the internet isn't already easy enough...
I like the idea though. No more extra wires!
