Does this product fit into my home networking strategy?
Yes it does.
Philips positions powerline communication and wireless technologies as a hybrid solution: complementary technologies. Based on key consumer criteria (eg. whole house coverage, easy set up, security, speed or mobility), there is no single networking technology that fits the bill. If a consumer is looking for a true plug and play home networking solution, powerline communication fits best, whereas wireless addresses best end-consumer mobility needs. The powerline ethernet adapters and wireless technology seamlessly fit together.
