|The PG-9172PoE reduces installation time and cost by utilising existing electrical lines to simplify the deployment of PoE enabled devices such as IP security cameras and VoIP phones
Comtrend, a leading designer and manufacturer of broadband communications equipment, announced its PG-9172PoE, a G.hn Powerline Adapter with Power over Ethernet. The adapter brings connection of a PoE device as close as the nearest electrical outlet.
The PG-9172PoE reduces installation time and cost by utilising existing electrical lines to simplify the deployment of PoE enabled devices such as IP security cameras and VoIP phones. The PG-9172PoE G.hn Powerline Adapter eliminates the time and expense of installing Ethernet (CAT5e/6) cables to every device throughout the home or business. Unlike Wifi connections, powerline adapters use physical wires to connect directly to devices thereby eliminating interference and improve performance and security. Traditional connections require elaborate cabling through structures that often prove troublesome and expensive. With the Comtrend PG-9172PoE, users can take advantage of the existing electrical wires in their home or office to transform every outlet into an Internet access point. Comtrend’s G.hn technology also manages potential interference in the electrical wiring due to other appliances to add an additional layer of performance over traditional powerline adapters.
Simplifying the deployment of IP security PoE cameras
The Comtrend PG-9172PoE offers more than 4x the data rate compared to legacy technology. The adapter can coexist with legacy products including deployed UPA devices and features interoperability with future G.hn certified devices. This leap in technology not only offers a PHY rate of 1Gbps, but also stabilises the home networking industry via standards-based communication that crosses all the popular mediums, from power line to phone line to coax.
Ideal for security installations, the Comtrend PG-9172PoE simplifies the deployment of IP security PoE cameras. Using Comtrend's G.hn Powerline Adapters, installers need only a fraction of the time and wiring for a typical job. Eliminate attic time, drywall repair, and frustration. G.hn also provides superior video performance, making the Comtrend PG-9172PoE ideal for HD video and IPTV deployments. G.hn detects video data transmission, figures out the fastest rate possible for this type of data, then uses the most efficient packet inspection for multicast traffic to set (up to) eight different levels of packet prioritised QoS. This eliminates the need for multiple resends of information, ensuring reliable and flicker-free video.
