Intro: Powerline as a standard has been specifically designed for home use (hence the name HomePlug Alliance) but it is an excellent solution for addressing a number of business pains. Powerline is an excellent solution in a variety of scenarios. Read more...
Intro: QoS watches the traffic coming from your equipment and the bandwidth requirements of each application in order to optimise the data flow and to ensure that certain applications such as Voice and Video always get priority over other network events Read more...
Intro: Yes, the Powerline Socket has a built in managed switch which provides QoS, tagged VLAN and other advanced networking functionality which can be configured for different priority traffic. Read more...
Intro: In the majority of UK homes, the same breaker connects all the rings and the network therefore is able to run across the different mains rings because the Powerline signal can run across the busbar. Read more...
Intro: The Powerline Sockets automatically go to sleep when there is no active Ethernet connection, but the units can be put into manual hibernation mode where the power consume drops to ~0.5W. This is done by holding down the reset button for 10 seconds. Read more...
Intro: The Network Activity light goes solid when there is an active Ethernet cable plugged into one of the 4 Ethernet ports on the front of the Powerline Socket. It blinks to show it is Ethernet activity. Read more...
Intro: If the Powerline (PLC) light is off and the Power light is red, it means that this Powerline Socket is asleep or in hibernation. Powerline Sockets automatically go into sleep mode when there is no active Ethernet connection. Read more...
Intro: First check that the Powerline adaptors are compatible with HomePlug AV standard. If they are not compatible with HomePlug AV standard then they will stop the Powerline network from working properly. Read more...
Intro: If the phases are joined at the electrical consumer unit, the Powerline network will run everywhere where there is a connectivity path. If the circuits are isolated, then the network can be joined together using CAT5 cables. Read more...
They replace signals from wireless systems- from a router to your TV for BBCiplayer, say- and send them through your mains.
Gives you a wired system without the expense of installing cables.
Avoid signal drop-outs.
The sockets simply replace your existing ones.
You can plug in up to four devices.

Power Ethernet Sockets 4 out of 5
“Even the most peculiar geek would struggle to find a power socket remotely alluring.
And yet – who would have thought it? – there is much to get excited about in the products of British start-up Power Ethernet.”
Matt Warman , The Telegraph
Employing Power Ethernet Sockets to link our remote huts and enable EPOS use has proved invaluable in improving the club’s catering capabilities. It’s not only pleased, but even surprised, our members that we are able to offer the same benefits of the main bar in these remote locations.
It’s also sped up service at peak times, which has naturally increased our sales.

Power Ethernet Sockets proved to be by far the best networking solution for the significant challenge we had in delivering Internet connectivity to the park’s entrance booth.
The complete absence of disruption to the farm, as no new cable runs were needed, really helped – with the installation only taking a couple of hours.
Robert Marsden, Club Manager at Hever Castle Golf Club
Powerline Sockets enable us to deploy a cabin in a matter of hours – with data and power all connected through a single cable.
This has a direct effect on how quickly we can set up a project – saving us time and money which is important for all our projects.
Brad Davies, Head of IT at McArdle Group
Power Ethernet has developed an innovative solution (patent pending) which embeds HomePlug Powerline and other complementary technologies into a standard power socket.
Our all-in-one power socket offers a unique solution to create a secure data network running across the existing power cables in a building for the delivery of digital media and environmental monitoring. Its unique design provides the freedom to connect all Internet enabled devices, including home automation and smart grid services without the need for expensive rewiring or unsightly adaptors.
