The Patton Model 2111 and 2112 LAN-Xtend™ Campus Bridges connects two peered 10Base-T Ethernet LANs (up to 100 users) at distances up to 3 miles/4.9 km over a single twisted pair (2 wires). Using the LAN X-Tender, corporations can connect an Ethernet LAN at the corporate headquarters to a peered Ethernet LAN at a local branch office using a dry copper leased line. The LAN-Xtend units also enable universities, corporations, government agencies, and military bases to use the installed base of telephone wire to connect two peered Ethernet LANs across a large campus or between floors in a high-rise building.
The LAN-Xtend devices are sold in pairs: one unit for the local or central office site (the Model 2112-CO), and one unit for the remote or customer premises (the Model 2112-CP). When the pair of units is deployed at either end of an unconditioned single-pair line, no configuration is needed. Just plug in the 10Base-T LAN connections and go! Built-in loopback diagnostics and front panel LED indicators help you troubleshoot any potential problems with the line.
