devolo sets a new benchmark for professional powerline solutions with the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II


devolo, the leading expert in powerline communication solutions, is presenting the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II, a new generation of its professional dLAN® adapter for commercial networks. Unlike the dLAN® products for home users, the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II offers comprehensive remote management configuration of its professional features, such as control of the transmitting power and frequencies, thus meeting the advanced requirements of commercial users. Moreover, the product has been further optimised for use in applications with many users, such as the hotel industry, health care, the housing industry and educational institutions, and is now the world‘s first powerline adapter to have a Kensington Lock connection. The patented locking technology is optimal for preventing theft by securing the dLAN® adapter using a corresponding flexible locking system.

In contrast to the dLAN® adapters for home users, the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II was developed specifically as a professional solution for the hotel industry, health care, housing industry and educational institutions. Based on the dLAN® 200 technology, the adapter provides fast and secure connections. This guarantees optimal in-house distribution of IPTV, video on demand as well as bandwidth-intensive Internet or network applications. With automatic data prioritisation for Quality Of Service, perfect transmission quality over up to 300 meters via the mains supply network is guaranteed. For flexible, project-related applications, devolo uses comprehensive, professional configuration options, such as suppressing certain frequencies in order not to interfere with other device groups (notching) or configuring the transmitting power (output power) as well as intelligent remote management using the dLAN® 200 AVpro manager dLAN management software. This program not only allows the adapters to be configured individually, it also enables function keys and status LEDs on the device to be deactivated in order to prevent incorrect operation.

So that the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II can be embedded easily into existing electrical installation structures, it has an integrated electrical socket—no power outlet goes to waste. The device is equipped with a mains filter that reduces interference in the powerline network, thus improving transmission quality.

Kensington Lock for effective anti-theft protection

Today, safeguarding technical devices in public locations plays a bigger role than ever—every year, thefts in hotels, hospitals and schools amount to gigantic losses incurred by the operators. With the development of the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II, devolo is responding to the increased security concerns of commercial dLAN® users, equipping the second version of the successful powerline adapter with a Kensington Lock connection. With the Kensington Lock, the company of the same name has set a worldwide standard in antitheft protection of mobile devices. The locking system is connected to the object to be secured using an approximately 3 x 7 millimetre opening on the housing. A flexible steel cable connected to a fixture such as a wall or piece of furniture installs effective anti-theft protection that also enables flexible positioning/cleaning of the device.

"Many of our business customers from the hospitality industry and the public sector are demanding optimal security for their investments," says Heiko Harbers, CEO of devolo AG. "With the dLAN® 200 AVpro WP II, devolo offers the proven quality of the predecessor model with the added bonus of an efficient anti-theft protection system."
