Ethernet extenders allow users to expand their Ethernet connections beyond the 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.

The Benefits of Ethernet Extenders
One benefit of Ethernet extenders is they can eliminate the need for installing expensive Switches and CAT5 cable. Ethernet extenders can use fiber-optic or copper twisted-pair cables to transparently send packets at full-line rate to a peered LAN up to five miles away. While networks typically deploy Ethernet extenders within a limited geographical area, this area need not be limited to one building. Ethernet extenders can create effective bridged-Ethernet connections across streets or over a college or enterprise campus and between Ethernet LANs up to five miles apart.

Ethernet extenders are cost-effective alternatives to more complicated and pricey wiring installations such as CAT5 cable. Ethernet extenders are plug-and-play devices that you can install quickly to take advantage of existing copper twisted-pair network infrastructure. Depending on the required data rate, some Ethernet extender models can increase the distance of an Ethernet link extension beyond five miles.

At Patton, we offer a wide range of award-winning Ethernet extenders to serve your networking needs, including both copper and fiber models. Our auto-rate adaptation feature ensures the highest speed possible across great distances. Unlike many LAN extenders, Patton extenders with auto-rate adaptation can be set for multiple data rates and require no difficult configuration when connecting to LANs at different distances.
