PCCW deploys powerline technology

9 Jun 2006

Hong Kong-based telco PCCW is deploying the Homeplug Turbo Powerline networking standard for its broadband and IPTV platforms. The powerline technology will be used to reach broadband customers who are unable or unwilling to install new cables at home. PCCW will give powerline networking adapters to users prepared to self-install in order to distribute broadband access as well as MPEG2-based IPTV around their homes. The adapters are based on Intellon’s turbo chipset which generates transmission speeds of up to 85Mbps.
