SiConnect, the leader in multimedia-ready home networking technology, has signed a memorandum of understanding with JPNET to create powerline based data distribution products for the Chinese market.
JPNET's product design will use SiConnect's recently announced single-chip PLi050 data powerline modem. The chip uses SiConnect's patented POEM® technology to bring significant benefits to data product designs. These include a consumer electronics cost point, simultaneous operation of multiple applications on the same network, embedded (non-PC) services, superior in-home reach via Whole Home Coverage™ mesh networking, and global EMC compliance.
SiConnect's VP of Sales, Mark Wilkes, commented, “We are delighted to be working with JPNET. The company's knowledge of the Chinese market is the best there is and we are looking forward to helping them address the great opportunities that exist there for powerline connectivity in the home.”
Mr JH Yang, Chief Executive of JPNET, said, “SiConnect's POEM technology is ideally suited for the Chinese market, offering essential technical features at the right price. Our evaluations have shown that it is the only powerline technology that can address all key customer needs in this so far unexploited market.”
