Powerline works by deploying adapters at power substations that convert data signals from telecoms network into frequencies that can be transmitted over electricity cables. At the customer’s premises, a specially designed modem is plugged directly into a power socket to separate the data transmission from the electricity.
Through data enabling the power grid, powerline has the ability to transform in-building electrical wiring into a big LAN that can be accessed from any power socket connected to the grid. That makes it possible to network PCs, fax machines, printers and scanners – and in time stereos, A/Cs, refrigerators just by plugging them into the wall.
