Ethernet Extender is a synonym for the concept of extending Ethernet LAN networking over twisted pair cabling (Cat-5, Cat-5e, Cat-6, Cat‑7).

The IEEE specifications for Fast Ethernet 802.3u (100Base-T), 802.3x (100Base-T), 802.3y (100Base-T2) and Gigabit Ethernet 802.3ab (1000Base-T) limits the maximum cable segment length to 100 meters (328 ft).

Ethernet LAN Extenders typically leverage a PoE powered repeater or a ITU 1-pair telecom signaling standard to exceed the 100 meters (328 ft) distance barrier for the purpose of a remove LAN Network.
