Even today, powerline specialist devolo AG provides support for the software of tomorrow. Microsoft Windows 7 is scheduled for a market launch in late 2009—and a public beta version is now in circulation. In anticipation of the release, devolo is shipping the new v20 software package with corresponding system support. devolo customers who switch to the new Microsoft OS at the time of the launch can be sure that their dLAN network is ready to use immediately and fully functional, even in Windows 7. Moreover, participants in the Windows 7 beta test have all necessary tools at their disposal today.

The new Windows version is intended as the final replacement for Windows XP, which has been on the market since 2001, and is planned for much more rapid distribution than Windows Vista. Contributing factors will include more intuitive navigation and the graphically appealing design with few system requirements. "devolo customers are used to comprehensive operating system support," says Heiko Harbers, CEO of devolo AG. "For example, we support all current Windows versions as well as Mac OS X and current Linux versions. Therefore, it is only natural for us to offer the software for Windows 7 as quickly as possible."

The devolo v20 software package for dLAN products with network connection is now available as a free download under www.devolo.de.
