Ethernet Adaptor Offers 190 Mbps Data Transmission Over Home Power Lines


Panasonic introduced today a power line Ethernet adaptor that can create a high-speed local area network anywhere in the home by simply plugging into a wall outlet.

The BL-PA100 adaptor, available in Japan on December 9, uses "HD-PLC" technology to achieve physical layer data rates of 190 Mbps) and secure communication that can coexist with other electric or radio devices used in the home.

The new Panasonic compact adaptor, measuring approximately 121 x 40 x 70 mm, uses existing power lines, so it does not require room-to-room cabling to establish a local area network. Panasonic claims that unlike wireless network, the "HD-PLC" network is stable and can seamlessly transmit a large amount of data such as high-definition video and streaming music content. With its AES 128-bit encryption, the BL-PA100 adaptor also provides the same level of protection given by most Internet banking and shopping sites.



Panasonic has prepared a starter kit (BL-PA100KT) for ease of installation. The kit includes two preconfigured BL-PA100 adaptors - one is used as the Master and the other as a Terminal adaptor. The kit allows the average person to easily establish a secure network without using a PC. Simply plug in the Master adaptor into a power outlet and connect a broadband router/modem to the adaptor. Then plug in the Terminal adaptor to a wall outlet in another room where you want to access the network. PC and other network "clients," such as Panasonic IP network camera, can be connected to the Ethernet port of the Terminal adaptor.

Now, each network client will be able to access the Internet as well as communicate with each other.

Adding another Terminal adaptor is also simple. Plug a second Terminal adaptor, which is sold individually, to the same power outlet as the Master and press the "Setup" buttons on both units simultaneously to register the Terminal. Once registered, the adaptor can be placed in power outlets anywhere in the house. Also, the clients can be connected to any Terminal adaptors in the house to communicate on the network. A total of 15 Terminal adaptors can be connected to the system.

Panasonic also announced today availability of "HD-PLC" module samples for other electronics manufacturers. Using Panasonic's own technology for embedding passive and active components into the substrate without damages, the MMDPMS150 series module takes up 40 per cent less space than conventional modules with similar functionality. As this compact module already incorporates such analog components as noise reduction filters, the manufacturers can easily develop products with high-speed PLC function. Panasonic plans to start sample shipments on December 1.
