19 February 2013, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, launched a new series of Power Line Communication adapters to meet demand for fast and convenient home networking.
The ZXHN H51 power line communication (PLC) series is compliant with the mainstream HomePlug AV and IEEE 1901 standards, and includes five models that cover the three main industry form factors: wall-mount, pass-through and hybrid Wi-Fi/PLC. The HomePlug AV was first proposed by HomePlug Alliance and was later included by the IEEE as part of the IEEE 1901 standard.
Users simply need to plug a ZXHN H51 product into a common power socket, and connect their portable devices to enjoy data rates of up to 500Mbps for home networks. The ZXHN H513B model also supports Wi-Fi connectivity. The powerful and convenient functionality of the ZXHN H51 removes the need for complex network cabling, and enhances the performance of wireless networks in homes. As a carrier-class product, the ZXHN H51 series delivers robust network performance, ensuring priority for triple-play traffic. It also offers an idle mode to reduce power consumption.
