devolo AG was founded on 1 May 2002 in Aachen, Germany, and specialises in the development of communications solutions for private consumers and industrial applications. Its product range includes devices for DSL, ISDN and analogue Internet access as well as home-networking solutions using cabled Ethernet, wireless LAN, or existing electrical wiring.


The firm was founded on 1 May 2002 in Aachen as a management buy-out from the ELSA AG. This allowed the know-how from 18 years of developmental experience and market knowledge to flow into the new firm. The firm further bolstered its position on the market by taking over the well-known “MicroLink®” brand, including all product rights. After just two years, clear positive results are already visible: devolo has established itself as a manufacturer and is the market leader in analogue data communications. The HomePlug technology has also been pursued with conviction. With its dLAN® series, devolo now offers an attractive palette of products and is market leader in this area as well.


devolo's goal is the further development of its successful product series. The areas of Internet access technology and home networking are developing rapidly. An orientation toward these technology markets, toward satisfying customer's needs, and the ambition to convince through innovative product ideas serve as the firm's motivational motor. In addition to the core markets of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, devolo products can now be found in Italy, Spain, Portugal, England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Greece and Dubai.

The path to our goal

A motivated and experienced team of workers is our most important guarantor for achieving of our stated goals. In this regard, devolo has dedicated itself particularly toward product development and quality assurance. Highly qualified developers work in close contact with product and distribution managers. Not only does this allow information to flow quickly from the market into product development, but it also allows distribution partners to be kept informed early and effectively. Flat hierarchies, faster decision-making processes and a high level of individual responsibility and freedom are standard components of the ever-elusive formula for success. At devolo they are put into practice.

Riding innovation to success

Following new product ideas with vision and daring: This is a fundament element of devolo's corporate philosophy. Technical innovation and market acceptance are factors in this success. The dLAN product line serves as proof of devolo's success here. The HomePlug technology has sold consistently. Competency, attention to the products, and customer support have all contributed to devolo's continued positive results on the market.
