The Mi Powerline wifi uses the PowerLAN technology with which network data are transported via the power grid. Plugged into a wall socket connected to the PowerLAN, the powerline adapter generates a Wi-Fi signal. In this way, connectivity is provided for rooms which otherwise cannot be reached with Wi-Fi. With its reduced and geometric shape and the matte-white plastic housing, the device conveys an elegant impression and can be mounted to the wall unobtrusively.
Statement by the Jury
Mi Powerline wifi is consistently reduced to the essentials and, with its flowing lines, has a pleasing charisma.
