Concordia Technologies has been chosen as a distributor for the new all-in-one Ethernet enabled power sockets known as PE Sockets.
The PE Socket is the first product to integrate Powerline networking technology directly into an electrical socket so that it can be installed by electricians.
Based on the HomePlug AV standard for Powerline networking, Power Ethernet’s all-in-one PE Socket combines four Ethernet network ports, a fully-managed network switch and a filtered power socket.
It fits into a British Standard 35mm deep double gang metal back box and takes advantage of a building’s existing electrical wiring to create a high-speed and secure data network for connecting computers, Voice over IP phones, multimedia set-top boxes, Internet-connected TVs and other IP enabled devices.
The PE Sockets have been designed to enable electricians to start specifying and installing data networks in both commercial and residential buildings without the need for additional specialist cabling or networking knowledge.
Power Ethernet’s PE Socket is unique in integrating Powerline into the electrical fabric of a building and its sockets. It is a professionally engineered, reliable Powerline solution which has been aesthetically designed to ensure that the sockets can be installed in the most prominent of positions.
Installing two or more PE Sockets instantly creates a high speed, secure Ethernet network running across the existing electrical mains cabling. Connecting any PE Socket to a broadband service enables the sharing of Internet connectivity and digital content among all the devices plugged into them.
