Powerline manufacturer devolo has launched a business unit focused on improving internet connections within professional environments.
Through its new ‘Business Solutions’ unit, the German company will use its dLAN Powerline technology to enable businesses to expand existing networks by creating new cable-based and WiFi connections.
devolo’s dLAN Powerline products increase the availability and strength of internet services by using existing electrical circuits as a long network cable to transmit data throughout buildings. Every plug socket can then be turned into a network access point with the help of an adapter, which can also be used to create new WiFi ‘hot spots’.
The company says the new business unit will tackle the growing need for flexible network solutions in professional environment, such as the need to provide extended WiFi networks for mobile devices used within the workplace.
devolo CEO Heiko Harbers said: “We have been providing products to professional users since devolo AG was founded.
“By establishing a dedicated business unit, we can continue to focus on delivering customised solutions to this expanding market.”
devolo’s Business Solutions products are available via trained IT electronics vendors and system providers.
Resellers are certified and provided with comprehensive training programmes, while the dLAN business product range includes features for remote management by systems administrators once installed.
