Patton's CopperLink1314 Ethernet Extender Offers High Speed Connection for Long Distances

With over 1,000 products, Patton (News - Alert) offers any networking solution you may need. Its latest innovation in Ethernet Extension technology is the CopperLink1314 Ethernet Extender. It leverages existing copper-wire network infrastructure to interconnect remote LANs at high speeds up to 3.4 miles apart.

When connecting a remote office or private-network backbone to a corporate LAN—or interconnecting such network-enabled devices such as PCs, digital sensors and IP cameras—Patton Ethernet Extenders offer the optimum combination of speed and distance. Featuring plug-and-play installation, Patton’s CopperLink Auto-Rate Ethernet Extender provides a simple, cost-effective solution for high-speed campus LAN extension.

CopperLink Ethernet Extenders are installed and operating in a variety of environments, including nuclear power plants, submarines, sports arenas, election systems and a rock ‘n’ roll celebrity museum.

The CL1314 offers high speed extension, auto-rate selection, CopperLink 2-wire connection, built-in 4-port Ethernet switch, transparent LAN bridging and automatic learning, aging and filtering.

It delivers speeds up to 5.7 Mbps and extends Ethernet connections across distances ranging from 3.4 to 5.4 km (2.0 to 3.4 miles) when operating over standard 0.5 mm (24 AWG) voice-grade wiring. The auto-rate feature ensures the fastest possible speed on each connection, while plug-‘n’-play operation gets the link up and running in seconds. CL1314 users can also “hard-set” the desired line rate via DIP switches or console Telnet.

Patton has started taking orders for the CL1314, which will ship later this month. During the product-launch period, Patton is offering early-bird discounts up to 20 percent on orders of two-packs in quantities of 10, 25, 50 or more when booked before the end of June 2012.

In addition to the CopperLink Extenders, product lines offered by Patton include SmartNode VoIP, ForeFront Multi-Service AIS, Visuality Mobile Video and OnSite CPE. It offers a variety of support services, including upgrades, repairs and returns, help desk services and training and seminars.

TMC (News - Alert) and Patton are hosting a Webinar, “Complete Turn-Key IP PBX (News - Alert) Solutions,” on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 1:00 PM EDT/10:00 AM PDT. The Webinar will highlight turn-key IP PBX solutions that use SmartNode Gateways to connect your legacy phone equipment to your next generation 3CX phone system.
