Patton ( is now taking orders for the new US-manufactured CopperLink(TM) 1314 Ethernet Extender, which will start shipping later this month.

Patton's latest innovation in Ethernet Extension technology, the model CL1314, leverages ubiquitous copper-wire network infrastructure to interconnect remote LANs up to 3.4 miles apart.

When interconnecting sites on a corporate campus, buildings and network devices often lie beyond reach of a standard Ethernet segment. Featuring plug-and-play installation, Patton's CopperLink Auto-Rate Ethernet Extender provides a simple, cost-effective solution for high-speed campus LAN extension.

The CL1314 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 device provides four auto-sensing full/half duplex 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports with an integrated crossover switch for hassle-free system setup. An auto-rate feature ensures the fastest possible speed on each connection, while plug-'n'-play operation gets the link up-and-running in seconds.

By supporting auto-rate adaptation, the CopperLink product line offers hassle-free set-up and operation, while achieving the highest possible line rate for the required distance and electro-magnetic environment. CL1314 users can also "hard-set" the desired line rate via DIP switches or console Telnet.

During the product-launch period, Patton is offering early-bird discounts up to 20% on orders of CL1314 two-packs in quantities of 10, 25, 50 or more when booked before the end of June 2012. For details on the promotional pricing, contact

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.
