Powerline expert devolo AG is presenting the strongest dLAN OEM product line-up in its history at the leading trade fair for Internet service providers, the IPTV World Forum 2011. Innovative PLC products for IPTV and home networks will be featured at the company's stand. At the same time, devolo will celebrate over 10 million products shipped throughout Europe — the global powerline world market leader has shipped over 4 million adapters in the OEM segment. Interested companies from the ISP environment will benefit from the newly established ISP division, which now guarantees customised OEM product versions on the highest level.

AACHEN, Germany, March 16, 2011 - Innovative, powerline-based OEM products for internet service providers
are the focus of the devolo presentation at the IPTV World Forum 2011. There,
the Aachen-based company will feature both special (Hybrid-)IPTV solutions
and its wide range of powerline products. At the fair, held in London from 22
to 24 March 2011, devolo will present the highlights for state-of-the-art,
high-performance powerline networks at the National Hall, Olympia, Ground
Floor, Booth 43. The newly established devolo ISP division will make its
debut at the IPTV World Forum. In addition to the classic OEM business, the
division offers customised solutions for major customers. Interested
companies benefit from the professional product development, from design over
implementation to customisation. This guarantees the highest standards of
quality "Made in Germany" with the Production Test System (Spirent
TestCenter, NI TestStand, IxChariot) developed in-house.

The OEM business area at devolo is growing continuously: the company
shipped 4 million devices to renowned OEM customers — in conjunction with
classic sales under the devolo dLAN brand, the number of products across
Europe totals some 10 million.

Hybrid TV — Innovative home entertainment from xDSL and satellite

For OEM customers, devolo is presenting two hybrid TV solutions that
offer extensive TV offerings with optimal xDSL network utilisation and enable
triple play services to be offered in regions that have a less well-developed
xDSL structure. While Video-on-Demand services — such as content from the
media library — continues to be loaded via the broadband network, live TV
formats reach the home via satellite according to the DVB-S2 standard. This
not only significantly increases the potential in terms of addressable IPTV
customers, it also greatly reduces the individual installation times and

To make this possible, devolo has developed a modular hybrid TV system
consisting of a tuner and IP set-top box. The satellite tuner is simply
connected to the satellite antenna — the signal covers the distance to the
IP set-top box via the power line. However, the devolo set-top box is not the
only option for reception. Every computer in the house also becomes a digital
entertainment centre with TV and Web content. This also enables many IPTV
set-top boxes that are already on the market to be converted to hybrid IPTV
solutions by a firmware upgrade.

dLAN 500 — The new powerline standard for stable multi-room

With the dLAN 500, devolo is presenting the new dLAN generation for
in-home powerline networks at the IPTV World Forum. The adapters, which are
in compliance with the international IEEE 1901 standard, offer both a higher
transmission rate of 500 Mbps and a longer range. This allows, for example,
four HDTV channels to be transmitted simultaneously and retrieved throughout
the home. The company's development also takes into account the FTTx efforts
of many ISPs, who want to provide 100 Mbps broadband Internet for European
households via glass fibre. dLAN 500 is compatible with all correspondingly
standardised powerline adapters and the previous dLAN 200 generation. The
Quality of Service performance feature ensures perfect
multi-room/multi-service transmission.

In addition, dLAN 500 offers TR069 support for comprehensive remote
management: for example, the Internet Service Provider can install new
firmware using remote maintenance or configure the entire product scenario
automatically. The first adapters of the dLAN 500 portfolio will be available
for OEM customers shortly. With the first, the dLAN 500 AVmini, devolo offers
a popular product variant that features an outstanding cost-optimised design
and compact dimensions.

dLAN 200 AV Wireless N — Home networking centre unites WLAN, LAN &

With the dLAN 200 AV Wireless N, devolo completes its dLAN 200 AV
portfolio: the 3-in-1 adapter unites WLAN, LAN and powerline in one compact
device. This way mobile devices like a laptop, web tablet or smart phone
easily connect to the dLAN home network via WLAN, while the desktop computer,
network printer and NAS hard drive in your home office are connected via the
three classic network ports. The same applies for Internet TVs, Blu-ray
players and game consoles in the living room. The compact dLAN adapter is
equipped with two internal WLAN antennas with MIMO technology and enables
WLAN zones to be set up quickly and easily for wireless surfing. Support of
the fast WiFi N standard ensures that the full dLAN bandwidth of 200 Mbps is

About devolo AG

Competence by concentration. Since 2002, devolo AG has been developing
innovative powerline products for private customers and commercial use. The
dLAN product portfolio is based on the international HomePlug standards and
makes it possible to create networks in buildings easily via the existing
wiring, such as electrical wiring, coaxial cables and two-wire lines. While
in the SoHo area, the products satisfy ever-increasing customer demands for
an all-encompassing connectivity solution for IT and CE products, business
clients find in the dLAN line an ideal technology with which to retroactively
integrate secure and stable network solutions into existing infrastructures.
devolo invests its development resources exclusively for improving this
technology by means of its own patented solutions — thus to provide dLAN
products which offer even more power, more security, greater energy
efficiency and are friendlier to the environment. This is how the
internationally operated company has become the global leader. Numerous
top-product test reviews and distinctions in the press, not to mention over
ten million shipped adapters, substantiate devolo's success. On the market,
devolo stands for powerline products that are as innovative as they are high
in quality. As a sustainable trade company, devolo holds in high regard its
responsibility towards its customers, its employees and the environment.
