German firm devolo will demonstrate its new networking solution that uses existing home electrical wiring to transfer audio, video and HDTV signals around the house.

The new HomePlug AV standard will be shown at CeBIT 2006. The solution provides transfer rates of 200Mbps over existing household electrical wiring.

The HomePlug AV standard can support full multimedia home networking throughout the whole house, with transfer rates of 200Mbps. It will support HDTV video-streaming, Voice Over IP and high speed Internet (where available). It also offers an alternative way to network computers and other devices.

It uses HomePlug adaptors which connect to exisitng wall sockets, acting just like a physical network cable, streaming bandwidth to any room in the house.
