Hi all,

 

Have been looking at the powerline series of adapters but am confused as to how the 2000mbps "AV2000" powerline adapters even work.

 

My understanding is that the AV2 standard that the current powerline systems use is based on a (still impressive) 1300mbps PHY rate using MIMO etc.

 

Does anyone know how exactly these adapters supposedly reach 2000mbps when the standard doesn't specify that rate? What do they do differently to the AV1300 adapters?

 

I would like to use them but am worried that they may be less stable than the 1300mbps versions if they do something that operates out of the official AV2 standard.

  @mikewil,

Ill be honest with you, I'm not entirely sure about the intracacies of Powerline Improvements, but I can say that the AV2000 is compliant with the overarching HomePlug AV2 Standard.  There have been improvements on the standards after they have been released, such as introducing MIMO to the standard. I BELIEVE that the addition of MIMO is what provides the 2000. I found this in a Journal for how AV2 operates:

Something else to consider, with the way that the HomePlug AV2 standard works, you are limited to the slowest Powerline Device connected to the network, across ALL NODES. This means that if you already have a large amount of AV1300 devices, these must be completely eliminated/replaced from the network in order to take advantage of the 2000mbps speeds.

 

As far as I can tell, the 2000mbps models would be more stable due to their increased capabilities for multiple data streams. With an AV1300 you technically have to wait for one set of packets to be received and sent before another can be sent. This means that you would probably experience less delay when first connecting to sites and pages, especially if there is more than one device attached to the powerline unit.
