A speed of up to 1,800 Mbps over WiFi

These PLCs take advantage of the home’s power line to transmit WiFi coverage and improve reception at the points we choose. Now with the inclusion of WiFi 6, Devolo PLCs are capable of up to 2,400 Mbps of maximum speed from power cables and 1,800 Mbps via WiFi. The Magic 2 WiFi 6 also offers two Ethernet ports, with a speed of up to 1,000 Mbps.

This new generation of PLCs focuses on OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) technology, which increases the efficiency of wireless consumption by dividing the available channels into subsets, depending on the user’s need. From the manufacturer they assure that their product ‘offers 50% more power than any other WiFi 5 PLC adapter on the market’.

Up to eight adapters and management through its own app

Adopting the WiFi 6 standard at home is not only accompanied by higher speed, but by a set of technologies that make the connection more stable despite the number of devices in the home. The firm promotes in this Magic 2 WiFi 6 in addition its TWT technology (acronym for Target Activation Time in English), which ‘puts to sleep’ those devices that do not require instant connection, thus saving energy.

Devolo Magic 2 WiFi 6 allows you to connect up to eight adapters, being able to distribute them throughout the house. In addition, through applications for both mobile devices and desktop, it is possible to manage the entire connection.
