The Adaptive Networks website has not been updated since January 2006, no word as yet on whether the company is still operating.
Adaptive Networks solves the problem of network communications in harsh powerline environments. Our products have been field proven by industry leaders in industries including electric utilities, manufacturing, mining, shipping, and subsea oil and gas production, meeting critical communications requirements 24/7. Our technology has gained acceptance by standards bodies, as an ISO standard (shipping) and an IEC standard (electric utilities). We provide self-contained low voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) powerline communications solutions, including couplers.
Our technology alleviates the expensive, complex, time-consuming, and in many instances, impossible-to-solve, problem of running communications wire by allowing data networks to operate in the same reliable fashion, at the same or higher bandwidths, over existing wiring infrastructure such as utility electric grids, on-premises powerlines, subsea powerlines, and other copper media, at maximum distances. This makes it feasible for users to leverage existing power wiring to establish primary, supplementary, complementary and redundant network.
