More speed for power line networking

When it comes to home networking most people can get by with WiFi. In some instances, WiFi doesn’t do the trick. I have this problem getting WiFi connectivity up stairs in my house. I can’t run wires because of the cost of cutting through the headers and boards in the walls of my house. That leaves power line networking.

The current spec for power line networking offers about 200Mbps speed to users. A new specification that will more than double that networking speed has been approved by the IEEE. The new spec is called IEEE 1901 and it supports up to 500Mbps speeds.

The new spec is appropriate for LAN connectivity along with smart power grids and more. The first mile and last mile solutions for the spec have a range of 1500m and will work with any power line at any voltage under 100MHz frequency.
