remote repeater

The remote repeater is used to bridge larger distances (1 km) between LAN segments of a local network.

A remote repeater is a repeater that consists of two parts, which is why one part is also called a half repeater. Both parts of a remote repeater are connected to each other via full- duplex lines using the Inter Repeater Link( IRL) and functionally form a repeater that connects coaxial LAN segments on the physical layer. This connection is also called a link segment. The two half repeaters together with the link segment fulfill the complete repeater functionality.
