Patton shipping new PoE Ethernet extenders

Maryland-based manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions Patton Electronics is now shipping the CopperLink 1101 series of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Ethernet Extenders, the company said.

Patton´s new PoE Extender kits can extend 10/100 Ethernet and up to 15 Watts of 802.3af (or legacy) PoE up to 3,300 feet (915 meters) to IP-enabled devices using a single pair of common copper telephone wires or coaxial cable.

By leveraging installed copper cable, Patton´s PoE Extenders prevent the disruption, delay and expense of AC power construction or new CAT5e cable installation.

Standard PoE specifies 4-wire cabling, yet the CL1101 operates over two wires. By leveraging low-voltage copper infrastructure to deliver power the CL1101 eliminates the expense of a high-voltage construction project while enabling All-IP migration and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Patton Electronics designs, develops, and manufacturers network access, connectivity, voice-over-IP, high availability, triple play, and video surveillance equipment for carrier, enterprise, and industrial networks worldwide. The company was founded in 1984 and is based in Gaithersburg, Maryland with training and support centers in Switzerland, Hungary, Lebanon, India, Vietnam, and the United States. It also has a technical assistance center in Melbourne, Australia.
