Comtrend’s Wave 2 Powerline, the PG-9182PT (PG-9083), Recognized for Exceptional Innovation

Irvine, CA– Comtrend, a leader in advanced networking, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded Comtrend’s Wave 2 Powerline, the PG-9182PT (globally known as the PG-9083), a 2020 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award.

The PG-9182PT Wave 2 Powerline adapter offers a marked improvement in Powerline performance for Service Providers by better delivering video in hard-to-reach locations (i.e. basements, garages, home offices, etc.). It accomplishes this by not only including all of the unique features that are available with Wave 1 technology, but by also adding improved technologies like a new Quick Noise Adaptation (QNA) algorithm that detects (and avoids) intermittent noise five times faster. This avoids negative viewing experiences such as glitches and lag and results in an enhanced video experience for applications such as 4K multicast IPTV. Additionally, utilizes NDIM (Neighboring Domain Interference Mitigation) for anti-interference functionality when there are other Powerline adapters (HPAV/ in neighboring apartments, condos, etc. that allows for consistently delivered high-performance speeds.

“Congratulations to Comtrend for being honored with a Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Comtrend’s Wave 2 Powerline Adapter, the PG-9182PT, is truly an innovative product and is amongst the best communications products and services available on the market today. I look forward to continued excellence from Comtrend in 2020 and beyond.”

The PG-9182PT features the following Service Provider benefits:

  1.  Remote Manageability: The PG-9182PT supports the widely-used, Service-Provider protocol called TR-069 to easily setup, manage, troubleshoot, and control the device remotely. This results in reduced truck rolls and operational costs.
  2. Easy Setup: Unlike running Ethernet cable throughout a home, the PG-9182PT is so simple to use that Service Providers can have it up and running within minutes. Service Providers could even choose to send the devices directly to end consumers for a self-install. This has become increasingly important as Service Providers navigate the “next normal” of COVID-19. Service Providers are able to maintain safe installations by sending subscribers these self-installable adapters.
  3. Reliable Alternative When WiFi Fails: When WiFi just isn’t good enough or cannot reach far enough, Powerline is a dependable alternative. Since Powerline uses the existing electrical wiring to deliver connectivity, it is able to go through walls and building material that would typically negatively impact WiFi performance. Therefore, Powerline delivers hard-wired speeds to hard-to-reach or remote locations.
  4. Continued Enhancements to Software Capabilities: Service Providers will see Comtrend’s continued commitment to enhance capabilities for the PG-9182PT. For example, when the PG-9182PT is used with a Comtrend Gateway and Comtrend ACS 3.1, Service Providers can utilize its Customer Service Representative portal for diagnostic recommendations and proactive performance monitoring. Additionally, an end-consumer Mobile App is coming soon! The Mobile App will further guide setup, allow WiFi setting changes, speed tests, and more!
  5. Secure Connection with the Touch of a Button: When paired together, the PG-9182PT encrypts the powerline network with 128-bit data encryption.
  6. Expandable Powerline Network: Once a Powerline network is created, it can continue to grow with additional adapters. Comtrend offers a lineup of Wave 2 Powerline Adapters that can enable WiFi expansion, PoE expansion, and a 4-Port Switch options. A network can consist of up to 16 Powerline adapters.
  7. Compact Design with Pass-Through Outlet: The PG-9182PT blends seamlessly into subscriber’s homes with its compact and sleek design. It also features a pass-through outlet, so that it doesn’t block the existing wall power outlet and additional devices can still be plugged in.

Comtrend’s PG-9182PT Wave 2 Powerline Adapter offers improved video quality and throughput, less line interference, true real-world Powerline performance, and it supports TR-069 for manageability. This is why Service Providers choose Comtrend’s Powerline to provide fast, reliable connectivity to their residential home subscribers.
