Powerline adapters are gaining popularity, and the amount of data consumers are pushing over electrical networks is also increasing. To support the increased data throughput, TP-LINK has released a HomePlug AV2 powerline adapter, TL-PA8010. TP-LINK’s latest powerline adapter provides real gigabit throughput while remaining backwards compatible with older (AV200, AV500, AV600, AV900) devices.
More importantly, TL-PA8010 supports Line-Natural/Line-Ground 2*2 MIMO with beamforming and auto negotiation with other adapters. It also supports IGMP managed multicast IP transmissions, for optimizing IPTV streams. Lastly, like its older cousins, TL-PA8010 will have a max range of 300 meters, and is capable of 128bit AES encryption.
It will be available in Q1 2014, but no price point has been announced.
