Patton's CopperLink-T Ethernet Extenders

By Brian Solomon
TMCnet Web Editor

Designed for plug-and-play, back-to-back operation, Patton’s (News - Alert) CopperLink-T Extenders—introduced a year ago—deliver TDM circuit extension with no required configuration. Simply connect the PBX (News - Alert) circuit to the T1 or E1 ports and the line interfaces to a dry copper pair. For ease of installation, the two active pins on the RJ connector are polarity insensitive. It doesn't matter which wire you connect to which pin.

Patton's Models 2113 and 2115 have redefined the limits of traditional TDM technology, tripling the normal reach of T1/E1 circuits while cutting the required number of copper pairs in half. Enterprises and integrators use these transparent, plug-and-play devices to eliminate telco tariffs and installation charges by connecting remote PBXs over existing dry copper. Service providers use CopperLink-T extenders to reach expanded subscriber populations with half the required copper, extending T1/E1 TDM circuits without repeaters to more than 3.5 miles over a single twisted pair.
CopperLink-T solutions also support T1/E1 extension between buildings or across campus, T1/E1 backhaul from a remote site, T1/E1 relocation, and last-mile TDM delivery. CopperLink-T extenders operate in clear-channel mode to transparently extend data and voice bearing circuits, including the T1 F-bit. The Model 2115 T1 extender comes with an RJ-48C connector. The Model 2113 E1 extender includes dual-BNC and RJ-48C connectors.
Patton has built Ethernet extenders in the U.S. since the 1990s. CopperLink models are currently operating in nuclear power plants, submarines, sports arenas, election systems and many other environments.
