Cisco has launched a new Linksys HomePlug AV Powerline solution, which can transform any electrical socket into an internet connection.

Up to four multimedia devices can connect simultaneously to the Linksys Powerline AV 4-Port Network Adapter Kit, which uses existing electrical wiring and wall sockets to deliver connectivity.

The device intended to be easy to set up, by plugging in one adapter in an electrical wall socket near the home router and the other adapter where the user want to connect your devices.

The kit also has the HomePlug Simple Connect button, to create a secure connection.

"Powerline provides a plug-and-play answer for one challenge that many people are facing: the need to connect new smart devices around the home to the Internet and need to increase wireless network coverage around the home," said Mohammad Meraj Hoda, managing director of Cisco's home networking business in emerging markets.
