Transition Networks, Inc. offers a full suite of fiber networking products that enable you to deliver and manage your network traffic reliably over fiber optics. The company's Transition Networks brand of media converters makes conversion between disparate media types possible; while helping companies leverage their existing network infrastructure.

In the fall of 2005, Communication Systems, Inc. announced the integration of MILAN Technologies into Transition Networks. This integration expanded the Transition Networks product portfolio to include a complete line of multilayer switches. The company has since added technologies such as fiber NICs, CWDM, and SFPs to further expand its offerings to customers wanting to manage and utilize the benefits of fiber optics.

Product Overview
With over 20 years of growth and expertise in hardware manufacturing, Transition Networks offers the ability to affordably integrate the benefits of fiber optics into any data network - in any application - in any environment. Offering support for multiple protocols, any interface, and a multitude of hardware platforms; Transition's portfolio gives you the power to deliver and manage your network traffic reliably over fiber.

Media Conversion
The company's Transition Networks brand of media converters make conversion between disparate media types possible, providing conversion technology solutions that offer the necessary adaptations without affecting the performance, nature or appearance of the network. The company designs and markets these media conversion technologies across a broad spectrum of networking protocols including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, ATM, Gigabit Ethernet, T1/E1, DS3, video, Power-over-Ethernet, and more. Transition Networks offers its products in chassis, stand alone, and PCI form factors. Our devices are SNMP manageable and can be managed via our graphical interface Focal Point, a web browser, or a command line interface.

The MILAN by Transition Networks portfolio of multilayer Ethernet switching products are designed to facilitate low-cost network evolution by allowing customers to only pay for the port counts and features that they need. The MILAN by Transition Networks switch line offers customers unique configurations and a high level of service and reliability, all while serving to ease the stress caused on networks by high-bandwidth applications.

Carrier Grade Fiber Access
Service Providers are constantly striving to meet growing broadband demands and new service offering. Factors such as remote management, SLAs, establishing QoS, and conserving fiber are forcing Carriers to get more out of their network. With Transition's complete line of fiber Network Interface Devices (NIDs) including our MEF 9 and 14 compliant Ethernet products, we're giving Service Providers the chance to meet these demands head on and deliver mission critical applications with efficiency and reliability.

Industrial Grade Conversion and Switching
