  • 2-Port Ethernet Adapter
  • Plug and Play

Performance and Convenience in HomePlug AV 500Mbps
HL117EP HomePlug engine is a Qualcomm Atheros AR7420 chipset. It features faster processing power, two Fast Ethernet host interfaces and an enhanced analog front end. The solution is compliance with IEEE1901 and Homeplug AV, hence allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV devices and other suppliers of IEEE1901 PLC (Powerline Line Communication) devices.

Connect every Ethernet device possible – no new wires, no drilling and no hassle!
Embarking on HomePlug technology - a concept of No New Wires® data communications, Aztech HomePlug transforms your in-house powerline into a networking infrastructure. Thus it successfully reduces ""dead spot"" and increases network coverage within your home.

Enhanced Quality of Service (QOS) also provides the guaranteed bandwidth reservations for multimedia payloads including TV over IP (IPTV), higher data rate broadband sharing, Online-Gaming, VoIP Calls, extending Wireless LANs coverage, Audio-Video transmission across the network as well as Network camera connectivity.

Fuss-free Set-up with Simple Connect
No configuration or software is required to pair Aztech HomePlugs. The ""Simple Connect"" button doubles as a security feature supported with 128-bit AES Hardware encryption, ensuring the network communications is free from eavesdroppers and hackers.

Noise-filtered pass-through power outlet
The embedded pass through electricity socket ensures that the user does not lose a wall socket, as well as it provides an AC filtering circuit to ensure that the HL113EP is isolated from locally generated AC noise sources connected to the socket.
