Advanced Powerline Technologies is engaged in the broadband over
power line industry. Their business is based on the idea of using existing power lines, both in the home and
outside, to transmit information.
This information includes broadband internet and the development of
"the 21st century home" concept in which home appliances and computers are networked.
APWL and others in the industry have exciting plans to turn pre-existing electrical infrastructure into big business. APWL has been
engaged in the industry for many years and
have been awarded numerous applicable patents.
New Millennium Research Council (NMRC) has recently released a report in which they say:
"Many industry watchers and representatives now believe BPL (broadband over power lines) can dramatically change the landscape of the broadband market, offering new forms of competition and delivering
high-quality service to remote areas."
"Is 2005 the year of BPL? There are a number of signs that suggest this could be the time the technology begins its emergence as a viable competitor in the broadband market."
"During the past two years, the commercial and media perspectives on
BPL in the United States have evolved from categorizing the technology as almost ready to really here.
"Current research into the BPL industry indicates a belief among some
experts that the industry may be primed for real growth in 2005 and beyond."
