PowerPacket

PowerPacket technology uses the same power line that provides electricity to your computer to network it to other computers in your home or office. PowerPacket uses Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) to handle high-speed data transmission between computers. Electrical wires in a home are difficult to use for deploying a network as electrical wires are always in a state of flux. OFDM can detect changes within the power line and maintain network communication even during power fluctuations. PowerPacket is designed to seamlessly coexist with existing home networking technology, including HomePNA, 802.11b and HomeRF, and can also work with older home power line technologies. PowerPacket was developed by Intellon and is used as the baseline technology for the HomePlug specification.
