Powerline Communication- The next-gen WiFi solution!
The internet is something our lives literally depend on! With the pandemic striking us in a very unexpected manner, humans have been forced to adapt to a WiFi-centric lifestyle. Divided by the pandemic, united by the internet- this is a typical explanation of working professionals and students today. Perhaps we are modernizing!
With this sudden shift to working from home and attending online classes, people of all age groups depend greatly on a good Wi-Fi connection to adhere to the new 'normal way of life'. However, even though Wi-Fi is so common, a good Wi-Fi signal isn't! While students struggle to attend their online classes, working professionals spend most of their time waiting for the network to work properly.
The importance of a good internet connection needs no explanation but the last meter of networking still stands as a hurdle for many. Unreliable networks, slow speed, dead zones, and poor connectivity are like the standard problems that come along with a Wi-Fi connection.
More than 6% of the population in the US (21 million people) have no high-speed connection. In Australia, the figure is 13%. Even in the world's richest countries, the web can't keep everyone connected. According to a survey conducted on work from home in India, majority of the employees working in IT/ITeS sector stated that they missed their office environment due to COVID-19 pandemic as of August 2020. About 72 percent of the employees with less than five years of work experience stated that they worked with sub-optimal internet speed at their homes.
Hence, the need for upgraded technology to improve Wi-Fi experience is beyond obvious!
What is Powerline Communication?
Powerline Communication or Powerline Technology is a method in which power and data are transferred through an existing network of electrical wiring. This technology provides broadband data communications on the conductors that are already in use for transmitting electric power using a modular signal. Let's simplify this further:
Think of Wi-Fi signals being transferred over the existing electrical wiring of your homes. Broadband over Power Line, also known as power-line internet supports powerline communication to allow smooth internet access through transmission lines.
Therefore, you do not need any additional wiring to use Powerline Technology. In simple words- It is wireless internet using wires, doesn't that sound interesting!
Why Powerline Communication?
Powerline technology is indeed the modern Wi-Fi technology everybody has been waiting for. Here are a few reasons that explain why powerline networking is such a bliss:
1. It offers higher performance and you can use it for good Wi-Fi and for ethernet.
2. Wider network coverage and a much more stable, reliable connection. Thick walls can no more be a reason for unstable Wi-Fi connectivity.
On the whole, powerline communication improves and enhances the overall Wi-Fi experience by providing good signals and expanded coverage.
How Sif uses modern PLC to revolutionize Wi-Fi experience
Sif uses modern powerline technology to provide smooth, uninterrupted Wi-Fi connectivity. The major advantage of Sif is that Wi-Fi dead zones don't stand a chance in front of it!
Sif offers ultimate last-meter connectivity and ensures high-speed Wi-Fi in every corner of your house. Plus, you do not need to change your network provider. Its simple plug-and-use technology extends Wi-Fi over the existing electrical wiring to send the connection to the far ends of your home.
It comes with two nodes- the fixed node and the portable node. The fixed node is connected to the router with a wire and is then put into a power socket. The portable node can be put into any power socket in your home where you wish to get high-speed connectivity. Signals are transferred over your home’s electrical wiring and thus, you are never “too far” from the router.
According to data estimations calculated by the Atlas VPN research team, India is set to reach 1 billion internet users by the year 2025. In 2020, the United States had slightly over 284 million internet users. This figure is projected to grow to 296.7 million internet users in 2025.
Internet usage across the globe is growing at a rapid pace and thus, high-speed Wi-Fi has become as important as water and electricity! Sif works as a Wi-Fi booster and router, thus making it a one-stop solution for all your Wi-Fi needs.
