IPT Loop Extender

Unanswered Question
Sep 10th, 2009


Is there a Cisco recommended CAT 5 POE loop extender that will overcome the 100m limit? I need to reach approx 300m and 800m on IPT phones.


I have this problem too.

Cisco does not recommend any ethernet cable extenders.

For these distances you should use either fiber or long-reach ethernet switches.

Thanks. I was hoping for a cheaper solution to handle the "one of" situations. It was my understanding that Cisco used to sell these devices, however likely discontinued them as it is more profitable to sell switches.
