Zyxel PLA5456 - Gigabit Powerline adapter

The PLA5456 adapter allows you to connect devices that require high data throughput, and thanks to the performance of HomePlug AV2 to 1800 Mb/s it provides an effective connection, suitable for video streaming in 4K quality or online games.

Communication through an electrical socket

Fast data transfer in the PLA5456 adapter can be easily achieved by connecting one of the adapters to a router or gateway connected to the Internet and the other to devices to be connected with HomePlug AV2 technology. The adapters have Gigabit Ethernet connectors to create a complete cable network.

For demanding

Zyxel PLA5456 with HomePlug AV2 and MIMO technologies provides the efficiency of direct connection to the router, while increasing the range of connection over the electrical network, even on two floors. Applications such as radio, movie and video Netflix 4K streams will therefore not be a problem.

Easy to set up

The PLA5456 adapter, along with Plug-and-Play technology, is easy to install even for non-advanced users. Just plug the adapters into electrical sockets and then use the sync button on both of them to get a 128-bit AES encrypted connection.


Zyxel PLA5456 has been designed in such a way that it does not block the electrical outlet and allows you to connect another device to yourself. The built-in filter ensures high quality of the network and protects against interference from other electrical devices.

Zyxel ONE Connect

Thanks to Zyxel ONE Connect it is possible to detect network devices in ONE Connect application on mobile devices.
