Asoka is a pioneer in the development of simple, secure, and reliable powerline communications (PLC) hardware and software and cloud services for Digital Living Made Simple™. Asoka’s PlugLink® and PlugLine® product lines enable service providers to quickly and economically install or extend complete home area networks that distribute high-speed Internet and broadband entertainment services throughout the home, as well as deliver innovative residential energy management and home monitoring services to consumers.
Asoka HomePlug®-certified products have been deployed in over one million locations worldwide to provide fast and flexible installation of high-speed networks throughout homes and businesses by leveraging existing electrical wiring systems. Asoka’s innovative products eliminate the need for expensive service provider wiring installations and complement WiFi networks by adding coverage in spots where wireless signals don’t reach.
Asoka pioneered the baseline platform for PLC solutions and developed the first remotely manageable PLC solution optimized for deployment by carriers and systems integrators. Today, Asoka provides the broadest and most complete portfolio of PLC products and solutions available for a global base of top tier service providers and system integrators, including AT&T, Comcast, Swisscom, Rogers, Motorola, FairPoint, CenturyLink and Clearwire.
Asoka’s PlugLink family of residential products provide simple, secure, reliable home networking for high-speed Internet surfing and VoIP, standard and high definition TV, IPTV and streaming audio, video and gaming. Asoka’s PlugLine products enable innovative systems for home energy management and home monitoring that can be easily added to the existing PlugLink network and controlled via the web by end users.
Asoka works with major residential solar suppliers to provide SolarLink™, the industry’s first PLC solar solution that simplifies and lowers the cost of installing and monitoring residential solar systems. SolarLink connects the system’s inverter and data logger directly to the homeowner’s Internet gateway through the home’s electrical wires, eliminating the need for extra wiring. The supplier is able to monitor the performance of the system and provide the homeowner with a user-friendly web interface to track energy output.
In addition, Asoka offers the PIugLAN® commercial product line, which delivers Internet and security services to every room, every outlet, and every person in multi-dwelling and multi-tenant units (MDU/MTUs), hotels and other hospitality and commercial small businesses.
Founded in 2001 and funded by top-tier investors Venrock Associates and Storm Ventures, Asoka is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. The company has engineering and manufacturing facilities in Zhuhai and Shenzhen, China, and sales and marketing offices in Grenoble, France.
