• Delivers maximum velocity Powerline speeds over the existing electrical network
  • HomePlug AV2 standard supports multiple HD digital streams
  • AC pass-through keeps power points free
  • SmartLink reduces noise on the electrical network

15 October 2013 (Sydney): NetComm Wireless Limited (ASX: NTC) today introduced the 600Mbps Powerline Kit with Gigabit Ethernet (NP507), its fastest powerline product to date. The NP507 incorporates the latest HomePlug AV2 standard and uses existing electrical wiring to deliver superfast Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mbps port) connectivity to smart TVs, gaming consoles and other networkable devices throughout the home or office.

The new NP507 provides the speed and capacity needed to support the surge of online activity and proliferation of connected devices in each household. In its 2014 Australian Connected Consumer Report, Neilsen found that 82 per cent of Australians now spend an average of 23.3 hours online each week, and around 74 per cent watch TV and use the Internet on separate devices at the same time, placing additional strain on home networks.

Designed to enhance network capacity without having to run cables or install new wiring, the NP507 plugs into any power point to create a high-speed Internet connection in any room. The compact NP507 is among the smallest in its class and is one of the few devices on the market to feature AC pass-through to ensure that power points remain free for other purposes.

"The NP507 will transform the power lines that already exist within the walls of any home into a high-speed network with the capacity to stream data rich media content from PCs, TVs, gaming consoles, Blu-rays and set top boxes so anyone can watch any show, or play any game, in any room – all without losing access to power points," said Danny Morrison, General Manager, NetComm Wireless.

Available now - The NetComm Wireless 600Mbps Powerline Kit with Gigabit Ethernet (NP507): $199 RRP inc. GST

  • Delivers 600Mbps data speeds.
