Ethernet Extenders enable customers to connect Ethernet LAN's over voice grade copper wire - for distances upto 10km and speeds upto 50Mbs.

What is an Ethernet Extender?

An Ethernet extender (also network extender or LAN extender) is any device used to extend an Ethernet or network segment beyond its inherent distance limitation which is approximately 100 metres for most common forms of twisted pair Ethernet. These devices employ a variety of transmission technologies and physical media (wireless, copper wire, fiber-optic cable, coaxial cable).

DNA Connect are Authorised Distributors for Patton Electronics Ethernet Extender Products in Australia.

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 Patton range of Ethernet Extenders provide transparent Ethernet Bridging between LAN's over a single link of telephone grade copper cable.

Benefits of Ethernet Extenders

  • The extender forwards traffic between LANs transparent to higher network-layer protocols over distances that far exceed the limitations of standard Ethernet.
  • Ethernet Extenders eliminates the need for installing expensive switches and Cat 5 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 8 km away
  • Ethernet extenders can create effective bridged-Ethernet connections across streets or over a college or enterprise campus and between Ethernet LANs up to 8km apart
  • Ethernet extenders are cost-effective alternatives to more complicated and pricey wiring installations such as Cat 5 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 8 km
