Repeaters, also referred to as hubs or wiring concentrators, are widely used in computer or other networks, such as local area networks (LAN), wide area networks (WAN), and telecommunications networks. These devices allow interconnection of a number of network segments at the physical layer of the network protocol. In communication network a repeater is a type of relay station which receives, amplifies and retransmits the radio signals emitted by the base station of a radio network so that they can be received by the mobile stations in the radio network. Repeaters are used in data transmission networks utilizing wireless data transmission for covering base station shadow regions. A repeater in a network receives data from a data device and re-transmits the data to the remaining data devices attached to the repeater. Network repeaters are typically used to connect between network nodes, such as network stations serving as data terminal equipment (DTE) on different network media. Repeaters provide the advantage of extending the physical distance between network nodes by receiving a data packet from one network medium, reconditioning the physical signal, and outputting the data packet to a second network medium. A repeater typically contains a number of ports which connect computer systems. Repeaters often connect to other repeaters through a common data channel such as an expansion port, thus allowing communication between computer systems connected to different repeaters.
