Features

HomePlug AV2* with Gigabit Ethernet port

HomePlug AV2* with Gigabit Ethernet port
With the latest HomePlug AV2* technology, the ZyXEL PLA5215 provides speeds of up to 600Mbps* and backward compatibility with HomePlug AV- and IEEE 1901-based products. In addition, the PLA5215 is equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port to provide a stable high-performance network for simultaneous HD streaming, gaming and Web surfing. You can easily extend Internet access to any room with just a power outlet.


AC pass-through design with embedded noise filter

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 enhances media streaming quality

QoS Enhances 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 services.


Power-Saving Mode

Power-Saving Mode
When there is no Ethernet connection or active network usage in 60 seconds, the ZyXEL PLA5215 will enter the power-saving mode that consumes only 0.5-Watt to save energy by over 80% when compared to adapters without this function.


*The theoretical maximum channel data transfer rate is derived from HomePlug AV2 specifications. Actual data transfer rates may vary between network environments with different distance, network traffic, and noise on electrical wires, quality of electrical installation and other adverse conditions.
**The SmartLink™ Plus feature is limited by the ground pin environments with different connectivity, distance, quality of electrical installation and other adverse conditions. Since the CE ground pin usage definition has yet to be clarified, SmartLink™ Plus is not currently supported on the EU and UK models.
***Available by future project-based requests.
