devolo Magic now available. Experience the home network of the future today

devolo Magic, the new reference class in the area of home networking, is now available in stores. The new Powerline series offers higher speeds, wider range and greater stability. devolo Magic combines high-performance mesh WiFi with the latest Powerline technology for a magical Internet experience throughout the home. The technology of devolo Magic is based on a new chip generation of the G.hn standard. This makes maximum speeds of up to 2,400 Mbps possible for the first time ever.

The home network of the future

With devolo Magic, devolo is offering the best of both the WiFi and the Powerline worlds. "As the backbone for high-performance WiFi, Powerline has enormous advantages," says Heiko Harbers, CEO of devolo AG. "Using Powerline as the backbone technology, the signal does not get blocked by ceilings or walls. With this new Powerline generation based on G.hn architecture, we advance into an entirely new performance dimension."

Instead of the 1,200 Mbps previously offered, these new high-end adapters provide data rates up to 2,400 Mbps. This makes them the fastest Powerline products on the market, giving customers the best possible experience for all of today's multimedia applications. And that's not all: devolo Magic also offers enough resources for the entertainment world of tomorrow. These products make it possible to transmit multiple 4K—or even 8K—videos throughout the home, simultaneously and flawlessly. Data-hungry virtual reality applications and maximum-speed online games are a snap, as is stable access to all cloud-based applications.

 

devolo Magic – Simply magical

devolo is using second-generation G.hn chips for the first time. In doing so, the company is strongly underscoring its leadership in technology. The G.hn Powerline chips provide an enormous increase in performance and considerable improvement to stability and range. The new devolo Magic adapters can handle line lengths up to 500 metres, allowing them to easily convert any power socket into a high-speed Internet access point.

 

Powerful mesh WiFi

All devolo Magic series WiFi adapters offer top-level mesh WiFi. And they're equipped with completely new and optimised WiFi functions. The "roaming" feature ensures that all WiFi clients, such as smartphones and tablets, are always connected to the strongest WiFi hotspot. This is especially practical when people move from room to room with their mobile devices. Config sync allows the router's WiFi configuration data to be transferred with ease to all WiFi access points (single SSID). In addition, the new airtime fairness feature processes the requests of fast WiFi clients at higher priority. This prevents older devices, which may require more time for a download, from creating WiFi bottlenecks. Integrated band steering ensures that all WiFi clients are automatically assigned to the best frequency band. devolo Magic automatically makes all mesh WiFi functions available to its users.

 

Easy installation and greater convenience with a new app

Installation of the devolo Magic adapters has never been so easy. Once you've plugged in the first adapter, all other adapters that are plugged in within the next two minutes are automatically connected to each other—without having to push a single button. During this pairing process, a unique security ID is exchanged between the devices. This makes the installation of devolo Magic extra secure and easy.

The Aachen-based manufacturer is releasing the devolo Home Network app just in time for the new product line. In addition to a user-friendly interface, it offers an intuitive wizard function which guides users, step-by-step, through the entire installation process. The new app will be continuously expanded into a central user tool and regularly updated with new functions. The devolo Cockpit software as well as the web interface are also available for configuration.
