Corinex
Wireless to Powerline
Access Point
Wireless to powerline local area network (LAN) solutions based
on Corinex Wireless to Powerline Access Point products, connect
a wireless device to the electrical wires in premises. The
electrical wires build the "backbone" for other "wired" devices on
the network, which are connected to this backbone by Corinex
Powerline adapters. Any high-performance Corinex Wireless to
Powerline Access Point extends the coverage of your network of
electrical wires and provides access to the Internet and
corporate or personal information from all mobile devices
without expensive additional cabling infrastructure.

What
Communications
Can a Corinex Wireless to
Powerline Access Point Provide?
Corinex Powerline products (USB, Ethernet, Wall Mount, Router
and Wireless) are designed to use existing AC electrical wiring
within the home as a networking physical medium. Robust
performance in the electrical noisy power line channel is
enabled by the use of the Orthogonal Frequency Division
Multiplexing (OFDM) technology. This multi-carrier modulation
scheme allows devices to dynamically "surf the channel" instantly shifting data from one carrier to another as noise and
attenuation conditions change. The OFDM technology finds the
low noise, low attenuation portions of the spectrum available to
it and continues data transmission.
The Corinex Wireless to Powerline Access Point supports 802.11b
standard based wireless client devices and the entirely new
designed and enhanced Corinex Powerline and CableLAN
products family, consisting of:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Corinex Powerline products have been optimized for highreliability networking applications. Internet and network access is
available through every power outlet in the home or office.
Corinex's HomePlug certified Powerline networking technology
supports up to 14 Mbps data rates. Corinex Powerline adapters
are certified by and compliant with the HomePlug Powerline
Alliance Industry Specification 1.0.1. This ensures interoperability
with other HomePlug devices. Powerline technology provides a
high quality of service for the adapters to ensure secure,
reliable channels for transferring files, streaming audio, video, or
voice data and even online gaming.

The Corinex Wireless to Powerline Access Point (AP) fully complies
with the IEEE 802.11b and the HomePlug 1.0.1 standard. This
means that the wireless access point is fully interoperable with all
other 802.11b compliant products. The access point uses
microwave technology operating in the license-free 2.4 GHz band
and offers bridging mode operation, DHCP client and IP filtering
functionality. A dual (one external and one internal) dipole
antenna provides superior polarized reception and diversity. The
detachable external antenna can be replaced by any convenient
third party antenna, according to customers needs. The AP's
power jack is the connecting medium to the 14 Mbps digital
powerline communication network based on the HomePlug 1.0.1
standard. This allows the easiest deployment of a wireless HotSpot
area where every power outlet can be used as a powerline
network interface to the access point.
Standards Compliance
Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP, Linux or
Mac OS X compatible for the Setup Tool
IEEE 802.11 b
• Physical layer data rate of up to 14 Mbps over the power line
with distances of up to 200 m, Multiprotocol communication
(TCP/IP, NetBEUI, IPX/SPX)
• 56 Bit DES link encryption with key management for secured
communication
• Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) with
sophisticated signal processing techniques for high data
reliability in noisy media conditions

The Corinex Wireless to Powerline Access Point contains an HTTP
server with a web configurable SNMP powerline agent. This
enables you to connect to it and configure it by using your web
browser. Every Corinex Powerline, CableLAN and Wireless product,
no matter where it is located in the network, can be managed by
the Corinex Open Powerline Management software or by using a
web browser. This represents an ideal networking solution for
homes, small to medium size offices, schools, hospitals, hotels and
retail outlets, without pulling any new wires.

The wireless access point provides a standard 40 bit Wired
Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption for enhanced data privacy
for the wireless network segment and uses the 64/128bit WEP
(Wireless) and 56bit DES (Powerline) link encryption with key
management for secured communication over the powerline
network segment. By using DSSS (wireless) and OFDM (powerline)
technologies, data corruption, interference and unauthorized
detection are minimized.

specification for your region.
The highest possible data throughput at any moment is obtained
by dynamic rate scaling at a maximum of 11 Mbps, 5.5 Mbps,
2 Mbps and 1 Mbps, determined by the wireless connection. The
dynamic rate scaling broadens the range of the connectivity by
decreasing the speed of the digital signal strength. Therefore the
maximum speed on the network is 14 Mbps within the Powerline
segment of the network.
