Nitek's network extenders allow Ethernet transmission of network data to communicate over an existing coaxial or UTP cable. The Ethernet extender systems consist of a transmitter and receiver set which requires very little installation time. Once powered up, the transmitter and receiver instantly connect and begin operating as a full-duplex 100BaseT Ethernet conduit. The system is completely transparent to the network; having no IP or MAC addresses and does not require any programming. Simply connect your network to the transmitter and receiver. The system extends network communications to overcome cable distance limitations, offering connections to devices in locations traditional networking does not allow. The network extenders will auto-negotiate bandwidth to compensate for wire attenuation and losses that occur from wire length, signal noise and interference.
