ELECTRICAL POWERLINE NETWORKING

ELECTRICAL POWERLINE NETWORKING

It is the method normally called home networking through which we are capable oI
interconnecting computers. This networking uses excited AC wire and power outlets to transmit
the desired data to homes and diIIerent oIIices. Powerline networking allows sharing web access,
printers, PC drives with all the existing wires, that means no new wires are needed to
interconnect. Power line is one oI the eIIicient methods Ior interconnecting computers. It uses
electrical wiring in our house to create a network.

The main and key advantage oI powerline networking is the PCs need not be put near the phone
outlets instead the devices are connected through electrical output. We can`t start networking just
by plugging in. Power line networking is based on Alliance home plug 1.o standard. With this
type oI networking we can interlink all the devices in our home without interrupting the working
oI each device.

As said earlier no extra wire is need Ior this networking. It uses standard plug or outlet to
interlink and hence it is possible to access any where at home. It is easy to connect with Ethernet.
Ethernet is a standard protocol Ior transIerring data to and Iro. Another notable Ieature is this
type oI networking provides maximum bandwidth and variable Irequency band. This is the
cheapest method Ior connecting diIIerent devices locating in various rooms.

IN this type oI networking electrical power is transmitted over high voltage lines and distributed
in low voltage lines. Proprietary speciIications Ior power line home networking have been
developed by a number oI diIIerent companies within the Iramework. Power line communication
modems are available Ior the data transIer. So lets conclude power line networking as one oI the
eIIicient and Iabulous methods to interconnect computers.
