Qualcomm Atheros Hybrid Networking Chipset Enables AVM Combination Range Extender and Energy Management Device

Tue, 16 Oct 2012 10:26:46 EST

AVM FRITZ! Powerline 546E Extends Range of the Home Network While Providing Automation and Remote Energy Management

 


AMSTERDAM – – Qualcomm Technologies Inc. (QTI) today announced that the hybrid networking technology of its networking and connectivity subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros Inc., will power AVM's FRITZ! Powerline 546E solution. The AVM FRITZ! Powerline 546E combines HomePlug powerline communication (PLC), Wi-Fi, two Ethernet connections, and an intelligent power socket to provide up to 500 Mbps of home networking performance along with home automation, energy management and control capabilities.

The 546E user interface displays an overview of the entire powerline communication network, while the integrated power socket enables devices to be connected, with energy use measured and recorded at the same time. The Qualcomm Atheros chipset, which includes the AR9341 Wi-Fi and AR7420 HomePlug powerline chips, is at the heart of the system, extending the Wi-Fi coverage inside the home. The 546E also enables consumers to access and control appliances using up to 16 amps via their smartphone, tablet or other network-connected computing device. This provides the opportunity for consumers to monitor and control energy use and, ultimately, save money.

Qualcomm Atheros has enabled the seamless combination of wired and wireless products with the introduction of its Hy-Fi™ technology, which provides a true plug-and-play experience for the consumer when expanding the home network.

'Qualcomm Atheros' collaboration with AVM reinforces our commitment to advancing home connectivity through the combination of our leading Wi-Fi and HomePlug PLC technologies,' said John Marcolini, senior director of product management, Qualcomm Atheros. 'We are providing a true plug-and-play, whole home connectivity experience with our Hy-Fi technology, enabling consumers to realize the full potential of their mobile devices from anywhere in the home.'

With data rates of up to 500 Mbps with HomePlugAV, the 546E supports bandwidth-intensive applications such as Internet TV and video-on-demand (VOD) services. Both PLC and Wi-Fi are individually encrypted for secure data transfer; devices with Ethernet can also be accessed via the home network.

'AVM employs tried-and-tested products and transmission technologies for home network use in its smart home designs,' said Gorden Haberla, powerline product manager, AVM. 'Qualcomm Atheros' expertise with hybrid networking connectivity provides significant advantages for home networking and intelligent home communication, bringing added energy cost savings to consumers.'
