D-Link launches super-fast Gigabit PowerLine Passthrough kit for 4K media streaming and high-speed Internet connectivity

Passthrough power socket enables other electrical devices to connect to the same power point


SYDNEY, 12 September 2016: D-Link ANZ has launched the DHP-P601AV PowerLine AV2 1000 HD Gigabit Passthrough Kit which uses your existing network of electrical wiring to extend your home Internet connection, with the convenience of a passthrough socket.

With data speeds of up to 1000 Mbps, the DHP-P601AV is ideal for bandwidth intensive applications and the passthrough power socket ensures that your electrical outlet remains available for use by another device.

Setup couldn’t be easier as these devices are true plug and play. Simply plug one adapter into a power outlet near your existing Router and connect it via the supplied Ethernet cable, and then plug the other adapter into the room you want to extend your Internet connection to.

With more and more people needing high-speed Internet connectivity across the home or business for activities such as HD or 4K Video streaming, Online Gaming, or simply because the existing Wi-Fi network doesn’t cover the far reaches of the property, the DHP-P601AV Powerline kit is the ideal solution. On top of this, more rooms can be connected by simply plugging in additional Powerline adapters with no additional cabling needed.

D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “Demand for PowerLine products has sky rocketed over the last few years and continues to grow. The main reason is that PowerLine is a simple and easy way to extend your Internet access within a home or business, without the hassle of installing extra cables. It’s perfect for meeting the demands of an ever-increasing number of connected devices and the desire for ultra-high performance and high-speed Internet connectivity. The new DHP-P601AV provides people with a reliable network connection giving them a high quality experience and the added bonus of a passthrough power socket to connect other electrical devices.”

The adapter’s subtle, compact design means it discreetly blends into your home and the plug-and-play, push button secure setup makes it easy to connect to your existing network with no configuration required.
