TP-LINK has unveiled the TL-PA8030P KIT AV1200 3-Port Gigabit Passthrough Powerline Starter Kit that expands your home's network over its existing electrical wiring. These adapters feature the latest HomePlug AV2 standard with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology and Powerline beamforming, reaching powerline speeds up to 1200Mbps1. These advanced technologies will improve peak data transfer rates and expand coverage.

TP-PA8030P KIT Passthrough Powerline Starter Kit utilizes MIMO technology and beamforming to expand coverage throughout the home, including hard-to-reach outlets. MIMO transmits two independent data streams on three wire pairs, live, neutral and ground increasing total throughput. Beamforming optimizes overall performance and reduces interference to maximize data transfer rates. Combined with the HomePlug AV2 protocol, that adds an additional spectrum from 30 to 86 MHz, these advanced technologies help Powerline adapters achieve advanced performance over the previous generation while delivering expanded whole-home coverage.

The Powerline adapters can also transmit data over Gigabit Ethernet ports, creating secure wired networks for true gigabit-class broadband speeds more than 100Mbps. This makes the TL-PA8030P KIT well suited for audio and video streaming, online gaming, multi-room IPTV and other high- demand networking uses. It also provides five extra Gigabit ports so users simultaneously connect wired devices like smart TVs, game consoles, external hard drives, or desktop computers to ensure maximum connectivity.

With a TL-PA8030P KIT Passthrough Powerline starter kit, consumers will no longer need to sacrifice a power outlet for their Powerline devices. TL-PA8030P KIT Passthrough Powerline starter kits feature an integrated power outlet with output of up to 16A, so users can safely plug their high-power electrical appliances directly into the front of the Powerline unit. The built-in noise filter blocks out electrical signals and other noise, preventing any performance interference from external devices.

Users can get their Powerline network up and running by plugging the Powerline adapters into any available power outlet, eliminating the need for time-consuming and expensive renovations previously required to establish a whole-home or office wired Ethernet network.
