Latest PowerLine AV2 MIMO 2000 Technology Uses Existing Electrical Wiring to Provide Fast Networking Speeds Ideal for 4K Media and Streaming

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Aug. 3, 2016 – D-Link today announced that the PowerLine AV2 2000 Gigabit Passthrough Starter Kit (DHP-P701AV) is now shipping – the new kit includes two passthrough adapters and utilizes the latest HomePlug AV2 industry-standard technology. The PowerLine kit transforms a home’s existing electrical wiring into a high-speed network with speeds of up to 2000Mbps1, making it the ideal solution for high-bandwidth applications like online gaming and 4K media streaming, while simultaneously bringing Ethernet network connectivity to hard-to-reach areas in the home. Users simply connect one adapter to an existing router and plug it into a wall outlet then plug the other adapter into an outlet2 and connect it to any wired device.

“The great thing about PowerLine is that it makes it so users no longer have to base where they place important devices, such as Smart TVs or gaming consoles, on where they can get a reliable connection from their router,” said Oscar Reyes, associate vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “The new PowerLine AV2 2000 Gigabit Passthrough Starter Kit offers a simple, affordable and discrete solution by transforming every electrical outlet in the home into a potential network connection, making even the hardest to reach areas viable for networking activities.”

The DHP-P701AV also utilizes the latest in AV2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology, allowing users to transfer larger files with ease and enjoy uninterrupted 4K media streaming and online gaming. The addition of the integrated passthrough socket ensures no power outlet goes to waste and the built-in noise filter eliminates electrical signal noise for powerful transmission performance and less interference.
