(City of Industry, CA) –
May 21, 2012 – TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today
announced its new AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter, providing industry-leading
performance, hassle-free set-up, for an instant, secure high-speed network for
the home or office.  The AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter provides
high-speed streams at up to 500Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters,
creating an incredibly fast, robust network. At these speeds, the AV500 Gigabit
Powerline Adapter delivers the performance required for fast, whole home or
office solutions to connect all network compatible devices from HD video
streaming, online gaming, VolP or any other bandwidth intensive applications.

The AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter comes equipped with TP-LINK’s
Quality of Service (QoS) function which prioritizes the bandwidth requirements
of data traffic, guaranteeing clear, instant connections of a device, even when
other bandwidth intensive applications like VoIP, video streaming or online
gaming are running on the network.
The sophisticated Power-Saving
Mode on the AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter consumes less power when compared
with existing Powerline adapters. When there is no data transmission or
reception occurring after five minutes, the adapters will automatically switch
from their regular “Working” mode to “Power-Saving” mode, lowering energy
consumption by up to 85 percent*.
It also comes with a pair button
on each adapter so users can easily set up a hassle-free connection with 128-bit
AES encryption for network security and data protection.
flagship Gigabit Powerline Adapter transforms your home or office power outlets
into a high-performance network with no need for new wires or drilling,” said
Howard He, Product Engineer of TP-LINK USA. “With our convenient network at
500Mbps, the Gigabit Powerline Adapter will transmit multiple HD video streams
to every room or office, making it an exceptional choice for an easy-to-build
multimedia network.”
