The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015):

repeater A network or communications device which propagates electrical signals from one cable to another, amplifying them to restore them to full strength in the process. Repeaters are used to counter the attenuation which occurs when signals travel long distances (e.g. across an ocean). A network repeater is less intelligent than a bridge, gateway or router since it works at the physical layer. (1998-07-16)
