Overview
The Patton CopperLink Model 2160 Series simplifies and provides cost effective network extension by utilizing pre-existing twisted pair infrastructure. LAN extension doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. Patton’s Model 2160 series of auto-rate Ethernet Extenders open the door to low-cost and easy set-up LAN extension. The LAN Extenders are easy to use and take advantage of existing copper twisted-pair infrastructure to connect LANs at high speed and over long distances.

There are three models available in the 2160 series, including the flagship Model 2162 that utilizes 1 to 4 pair of voice grade wires enabling maximum transmission speeds of 22.8 Mbps at a distance of 1.6 miles (2.6km). Also available is the Model 2161 (4 wire)—11.4 at 1.6 miles (2.6 km), and the Model 2160—5.7 Mbps at 1.6 miles (2.6 km). Maximum distance achieved with all CopperLink 2160 models is 4.1 miles (6.6 km).

Whether connecting corporate LANs or remote offices, Patton Ethernet Extenders offer the best combination of speed and distance in the industry. Other LAN extenders operate at a single rate or are difficult to configure for LANs located at different distances, but the CopperLink Ethernet Extenders’ auto-rate adaptation feature ensures that users get the highest speed possible for the distances they are trying to reach. Patton Ethernet Extenders include MTU support of 1,792 bytes, and come with a built-in MDI-X switch, that simplifies connection to LANs or PCs since it works correctly with a straight-through cable or a cross-over cable. Set-up is easy, just connect the Ethernet port cable and the copper twisted-pair to the Extenders, then apply power!

Patton CopperLink Auto-rate Ethernet Extenders are the perfect fit for cost effective simple and efficient LAN extension!

Typical Deployment

Patton’s CopperLink Auto-Rate Ethernet Extenders are the perfect fit for simple, cost-effective high speed Ethernet Extension. They allow customers to take advantage of the existing copper infrastructure to connect remote LAN’s across distances and at speeds previously unthought-of. The auto-rate feature ensures the highest speed is achieved on each connection, and the plug-n-play operation ensures they are up and running in seconds. Add in the 4 x auto-sensing full/half duplex 10/100Base-TX Ethernet ports with the integrated crossover switch to make setup even easier. The value of these Ethernet Extenders can’t be beat!

  • Auto-Rate Feature—The advanced auto-rate algorithm automatically determines the best possible rate for each connection and sets up each extender without any need for user interface.
  • Plug-and-Play—Just unpack the extenders, plug them into each end of the extension, power them up, and they are up and running. It doesn’t get any easier!
  • High Speed/Long Reach—These Ethernet Extenders provide the best combination of speed and distance seen anywhere in the industry!For example, connecting workgroups located on different floors in a building no longer requires expensive switches or the installation of low capacitance cable.
