AC Pass-Through Design with Embedded Noise Filter
The AC pass-through design provides the convenience to deploy a home network without compromising the existing power outlets by minimizing the interference from other home electric devices. The embedded noise filter also enables the ZyXEL PLA5215 to suppress noise from all connected electronic equipment to enhance network quality for multimedia streaming.


QoS-enhanced media streaming quality

QoS-Enhanced Media Streaming Quality
The advanced Quality of Service (QoS) feature improves the quality of multimedia streaming applications such as triple-play services by traffic prioritizing, HD video streaming, high-speed Internet access and VoIP.


Power-Saving Mode

Power-Saving Mode
When there is no active Ethernet link, the ZyXEL PLA4101 will enter a power-saving mode consuming only 0.5 Watts of power to reduce energy consumption by more than 88% comparing to adapters without this function.


*The theoretical maximum channel data transfer rate is derived from HomePlug AV specifications; however the maximum throughputs may be limited by the Fast Ethernet ports. Actual data transfer rate will vary with network environment conditions including: distance, network traffic, and noise on electrical wires, quality of electrical installation and other adverse limits.
