Plaster Networks Unveils its Powerline In-Home Networking

Plaster Networks, a start-up based in Menlo Park, California, introduced its Powerline solution for delivering music, videos, and other multimedia content using existing electrical wiring within the home.

Plaster Networks combines intelligent powerline adapters based on the HomePlug AV standard with a web-based service for remotely managing and configuring the home network. The Plaster Networks solution also includes powerline isolators that can filter unwanted noise, improving network reliability and performance.

Combined with Plaster Networks Service, the company's PLN3 powerline adapters allow users to see the throughput capacity of their powerline network instantly through a standard browser. And in many cases the Service can help identify where to install Plaster Networks isolators to optimize performance.
