Transmit Network Data via Existing Electrical Wires
The Edimax HP-5101 can turn the existing electrical wires in your home or office into a high-speed network. Complicated, disruptive and unsightly cabling is no longer necessary -if your home or office doesn’t have an existing Ethernet cable infrastructure, the HP-5101 enables you to create a network environment easily and cost-effectively.
500Mbps HomePlug AV Standard & IGMP Support
The Edimax HP-5101 not only complies with the HomePlug AV standard but also supports IGMP managed multicast streams. The HP-5101 can transmit network data over existing electrical wires at speeds of up to 500Mbps. It is also backward compatible with the 200Mbps HomePlug AV standard and has a transmission range of up to 300 meters. IGMP can be used for online gaming and video streaming applications, and allows for more efficient use of network resources. With the HP-5101, you will be able to transfer high-definition video and digital audio quickly and easily.
Compatibile with HomePlug 1.0 & 1.0 Turbo Devices
The HP-5101 is designed to ensure efficient coexistence with HomePlug 1.0 and 1.0 Turbo devices, providing guaranteed QoS to all the devices present in a heterogeneous powerline network. In such an architecture, the HP-5101 and other HomePlug 1.0 stations share the CSMA/CA allocations, thus providing fair access to HomePlug 1.0 stations based on traffic priority.
Hardware Combo Group/Reset Button
The Edimax HP-5101 has a combo group/reset button for simplified group and reset configurations. Press the group/reset button and the HP-5101 will help you set up a password for your network automatically, or reset the device to factory defaults.
128-Bit AES Encryption
With built-in compliance with the 128-bit AES encryption standard, the Edimax HP-5101 is able to give you superior powerline network security.
*Powerline adapters must be deployed in sets of two or more.
500/200Mbps is the maximum theoretical communication speed at the physical layer via electric power lines based on the IEEE 1901 standard.
