The article focuses on the practical use of Ethernet extenders and benefits in Internet protocol (IP) networking. It states that Ethernet extenders use Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) technology to extend the links of the Ethernet up to 10km in a single pair of low-grade copper wires. Ethernet extenders can eliminate the installation of CAT5 cable, because it use copper twisted-pair cables to send packets across local area networks (LAN) or IP devices.
