QoS features allow services like multimedia streaming and VoIP to operate simultaneously over the network without interfering with each other. When no Ethernet link is detected, the adapter enters a standby mode to reduce power consumption. Multi-colored LEDs indicate power on/off, Powerline Activity, and Ethernet Link/Activity. Encryption is handled through the 128-bit AES standard, allowing the network to be secured. This enables up to 4 other networks to be established over the same electrical system, each secured with its own AES encryption.
