What is Ethernet? Ethernet is a data-transmission protocol for computing devices connected by a local area network. The technology specifies physical-layer cabling as well the format of digital data protocol data units (PDUs). A key feature of Ethernet technology is the technique known as carrier sense multiple access with collision detection (CSMA/CD), which allows multiple device to share a communication channel over a single medium such as CAT5e.

What is Ethernet extension? Standard Ethernet specifies a maximum distance of 100 meters (328 feet) using CAT5 or higher grade cable. Ethernet extension technology provides two functions: 1) extending the distance of an Ethernet connection far beyond the standard 100-meter distance limitation, and 2) expanding the cabling options to include a wider array of physical media, such as unshielded twisted pair (UTP) or coaxial, as well as CATx cabling. The technology involves installing a pair of devices, one at each end of the link, to convert the data stream to an encoded signal that can be carried over a longer distance.

Managed Ethernet Extender

CopperLink 2300
The CopperLink 2300 offers the best bandwidth and distance combination in the CopperLink product line. Speeds in excess of 22.8 Mbps symmetrical at distances of 2 miles (3.2 km) are possible due to Patton's pair bonding which supports up to 4 individual twisted-pairs (8-wire) or just a single Cat 5 or higher rated cable.

Ultra-High-Speed Copper Ethernet Extender

CopperLink 1214
Achieving downstream line rates up to 168 Mbps over single twisted-pair, Cat 5e/6/7 or coaxial cable, Patton's CopperLink™ Model 1214 Ultra-High-Speed Ethernet Extender is the fastest CopperLink™ ever.

Ruggedized Multi-Drop Ethernet Extender

CopperLink 1314MDE
Use the CopperLink 1314MDE Multi-Drop Ethernet Extender to interconnect and daisy chain multiple remote networks and network enabled devices up to 3.4 miles (5.5 km) or more apart using single-twisted-pair cabling.

PoE Ethernet Extender

CopperLink 1101
Energize your existing cable plant today with Patton's new CL1101 PoE Extender. A pair of CL1101 Ethernet Extenders will enable 10 or 100Mbps of Ethernet & Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) to be passed over your existing twisted pair(s) or coaxial cables. Realize the many benefits of Ethernet with little to no downtime, construction or infrastructure related expenses!
 

Teach Me: What is an Ethernet Extender?

 
Ethernet extenders allow network designers to extend Ethernet connections well beyond the standard 328-foot (100-meter) Ethernet distance limitations. Ethernet extenders can establish long-range, high-speed data communication links between geographically separated LANs or LAN devices. Ethernet extenders are often employed to connect workgroups on different floors within a building.

Common Ethernet Extender Applications



The Benefits of Ethernet Extenders
Ethernet extenders can eliminate the need for expensive Ethernet switches and Cat 5 cable by using fiber-optic or copper twisted-pair cables to transparently send packets at full line rates to a peered LAN up to 5 miles (8 km) away. IT managers typically deploy Ethernet extenders within a limited geographical area. Yet this area need not be limited to one building. Ethernet extenders can create reliable bridged-Ethernet connections across streets or over a college or enterprise campus and between Ethernet LANs up to 5 miles (8 km) apart.

Ethernet extenders are cost-effective alternatives to more complicated and pricey wiring choices like Cat 5 cable. Because Ethernet extenders are plug-and-play networking devices, they are fast and easy to install. Taking advantage of existing copper twisted-pair network infrastructure, and depending on the required data rate, Ethernet extenders may increase the distance of an Ethernet link up to 5 miles (8 km) and beyond.
