upgrade / Modular Home Network System


upgrade is a modular telecommunication system for the modern home. Each of the identical constructed modules achieves a specific task and differs from its connection ports.

The user is able to customize his home network, combining the single modules. Additionally, the user identifies very easily what technology is built in his home network.

The modules are mounted via built-in neodymium magnets and are supplied with energy over the bow.
upgrade is based on an sustainable concept. In case of a defect or an outdated technique standard
only the related module has to be replaced.
