Benefits

Energy Efficiency
Due to climate change, Green IT is becoming a big issue in current times. With the Smart Power Saving technology, the BiPAC 2073 R2 can automatically detect its Ethernet connection. When a Ethernet-based device is powered down or disconnected, the BiPAC 2073 R2 adapter will automatically fall into sleep mode, which reduces power consumption significantly. Furthermore, when the current usage is in full operation, the adapter can reduce its power consumption which in turn saves money on your electricity bill. Create a Green home with the BiPAC 2073 R2 and become more energy efficient!

No Extra Wiring Needed to Set Up an In-home Network
With The BiPAC 2073 R2, you can create a network with high-speed bandwidth to connect computers and game consoles without the need for further drilling or extra wires. Just one touch of the Sync button to install the bridge utility and your high-speed network is ready. It is as easy as simply plugging in your Billion networking devices and using the power cables in your home.

Smooth Traffic and Prioritization
Quality of Service (QoS) control guarantees the transmission quality by automatically prioritizing data. The BiPAC 2073 R2 will automatically recognize the bandwidth needs of voice and video applications. QoS prioritizes the data in order to guarantee optimal transmission quality. TV and video images are received and displayed with absolute smoothness. QoS also guarantees clear and instant transmission of voice data, even when other applications are running on the network at the same time. QoS makes your network a pleasure to use.

Immunity from Noise and Intervention
Unlike other HomePlug devices, the BiPAC 2073 R2 supports superior and noise-immune data transmission over in-home electrical power lines. Even when your family turns on an electronic device or turns off a light, you won?t experience any interruption to latency-sensitive applications such as multimedia or video being shared with your family in another room.

    I have to agree with @bosbvok and @choc_salties on this one. It was easily one of the easiest hardware setups I have ever performed. Literally, plug in and you are ready to rock. The entire process took less than 2 minutes, and 1.5 of those were spent crawling underneath furniture looking for a space to plug it in. Firstly, let me start off by saying that I haven't had the opportunity (or need) to use the wifi access point functionality of the device. Saying that though, what I have experienced, up till this point, is enough for me to say that this is an awesome little device and if the AP works - bonus :) As a "trial-by-fire", its been plugged into the most overused multi-plug in the room with 4 other devices plugged directly into it, those being a dsl router, an additional wireless access point, a wall heater and an extension cable feeding even more appliances. This baby hasn't even missed a beat... full speed ahead with no packet loss. I have run it for just under 2.5 weeks and once plugged in, I haven't needed to look at it again. Its not every day you find a bit of kit that is "fire and forget" but for me, at least, that is exactly what its been. Two thumbs way way up.

    Hitch one in near your DSL router, hitch the other one up at the desired location, wait 2 seconds for the EOP light to light up, and its off to the races! Turned on the microwave, stove, kettle, all at the same time, no effect on quality. Also ran VOIP apps while doing mass downloads from PC 2 PC with no ill effects. Great device!

    We had a review model in our offices and I have to say we were amazed on how easy this was to setup and get going. Really great piece of hardware!
