SFR puts powerline communications in Neufbox Evolution

Tuesday 12 April 2011 | 09:36 CET | News
French operator SFR's new Neufbox Evolution customer premises equipment features two power blocks supporting powerline communications (PLC) transmission, writes website DSLvalley. The STB and gateway, two pieces of equipment designed by Philippe Starck, can use PLC instead Wi-Fi for their various connected devices. The house's power grid carries data from the basement to attic to the garden, divided by many concrete walls and floors affecting radio waves. French operator Free's Freebox Revolution, which came out a few months ago, was the first to offer PLC connectivity in France.
