U.K. telco giant BT will continue working with broadband-over-powerline technology supplier Comtrend, after renewing its existing contract with the vendor to support its BT Vision IPTV service. When deployed to a household, the service, according to IPTV News, uses two Comtrend Power Grid 902 adapters, pre-configured for plug-and-play home networking, that provide a local network bridge between the BT Home Hub router and the service's V-Box set-top appliance. One of the adapters plugs into the power outlet nearest the BT Home Hub, and the other goes into the power outlet nearest the set-top box. The solution supports maximum bandwidth of 200 Mbps.
