Ethernet Extension Application
Used in pairs, the Model 2158A establishes a high-speed 12.5 Mbps communication link inter-connecting two geographically separated LANs. Operation is simple: packets destined for the remote LAN are sent transparently, at full line rate, to the peered LAN. The Patton Model 2158A can also be used to reach remote PCs and other equipment and for delivering last mile ISP services.
Back-to-Back Extension Application
Use the Patton Model 2158A units in a back-to-back configuration, using an Ethernet crossover cable, to double the length of your high-speed Ethernet connection!
