Transition Networks Attendees at Tech Advantage

Late February was a very busy time for the teams here at Transition Networks. During the same week, there was a road trip to Orlando, two different tradeshows, and the launch of two new product sets.


BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition was held Feb. 22-26 in Orlando. The show enabled participants to learn about the latest technology and advancements in the Information & Communications Technology (ICT) industry.

Not only was Transition Networks a sponsor, we also had an exhibit booth where we showcased our new ION 4110 fiber to fiber repeater. This cost-effective media conversion solution lets LAN managers use existing fiber/cable infrastructure to easily extend transmission distances at network speeds ranging from 1Gbps to 11.5Gbps – without the need to upgrade.

The ION 4110 is designed especially for industrial, enterprise, education, and government verticals, but can provide support for other markets as well.


The TechAdvantage Conference & Expo also took place in Orlando and was held Feb. 23-26. This annual show shares new ways for attendees to optimize their technology systems via presentation of the latest cutting-edge solutions and products designed to help resolve engineering, IT, energy services, operations, supply management and business challenges.

Show visitors were able to attend a presentation given by our subject matter expert and Product Manager, John Ragan, and Billy Wise from Gresco Utility Supply, Inc. The discussion was about Optimal Network Infrastructure Design for Power Utility Substation Security, Automation & Maintenance. At the Transition Networks exhibit booth, we proudly introduced the expansion of our hardened Ethernet serial device servers (SDS) line.

The hardened Ethernet SDSFX3110 family contains four new servers that offer data encryption capabilities to improve security and scalability when connecting industrial equipment to Ethernet networks located in harsh environments.

The hardened electronic design and rugged metal enclosure make these products ideal for power utility, gas exploration and applications in other challenging environments that include security cameras, substation automation, traffic and transportation, and logistics/material handling.

Next Stop: March

Next stop for us is the Minnesota Telecom Alliance (MTA) Annual Convention & Trade Show coming up March 23-25. Be sure to stop in to see us at Booth #67 if you’re planning to attend!

Transition Networks Selected for Awards Shortlist

December 2nd, 2014
telecoms Awards 2014

Telcoms Awards 2014, London

The Transition Networks team is delighted that our new mobile app solution for managing Carrier Ethernet services has made the Awards Shortlist in the ‘Fixed Network Innovation’ category. Winners will be announced on December 4th at a special awards event in London. Our category was open to fixed network service providers who made a significant, groundbreaking technological achievement. The award is intended to recognize entrants that have pushed the boundaries of fixed network efficiency and functionality. Here’s what we told the judges about the power of our new app: “The new mobile app from Transition Networks for managing carrier Ethernet services allows dynamic programmability of the network through a complete, fully integrated northbound REST API. It gives service providers the ability to allow customers to manage services using an iPad or other mobile device. End users can reallocate service priorities and adjust bandwidth on-demand, without any service interruption. This mobile app helps meet the demand for flexibility and simplification of provisioning, giving service providers a competitive edge and accelerating revenue, while increasing customer satisfaction.” Representatives from Transition Networks will be at the awards dinner hoping for a win – so please keep your fingers crossed!

Last month, Transition Networks attended the first BIG Telecom Event (BTE), hosted by Light Reading in Chicago. The conference gave us an opportunity to showcase our latest software defined services (SDS) solution that helps providers facilitate delivery of dynamic, on-demand, elastic services over today’s Carrier Ethernet 2.0 networks. Our SDS solution is designed to accelerate service provider revenue by enabling their customers to adjust bandwidth and service priorities with an intuitive mobile application.

In a BTE panel discussion titled “Carrier Ethernet & the Cloud,” participating executives shared their views on Carrier Ethernet services, the call for rapid progress to support flexible bandwidth models and the need for telecom network operators to update edge infrastructure and service delivery processes. Our Vice President of Product and Technology Development, Tom Savard, Ph.D., spoke about the importance of flexible edge infrastructure and the end-user experience for cloud applications. The opportunities and risks can be addressed to a large extent by mobile apps, bandwidth on demand, and SDS automation.

At our BTE exhibit booth, we demonstrated a new mobile application that extends the capabilities of our Converge™ service management solution to a wirelessly connected smart device. The app allows dynamic programmability of the network through a complete, fully integrated northbound REST API and gives customers the ability to reallocate bandwidth using an iPad or other mobile devices.

This means, for example, that a service provider could allow end users to reallocate service priorities and adjust bandwidth on-demand, without any service interruption.

We believe that this is the direction in which the telecom industry is going. There is great demand for simplification of provisioning and flexibility, not only for service providers, but also for their end customers. The simplicity of focused apps and the power of a complete API that extends the capabilities of our Converge™ Service Management Solution can make a huge impact in providing the services that business customers want today.

TN Simplifies CE 2.0 Service Delivery with Converge™ EMS, Demarcation Devices and Access Switches!

October 2nd, 2013

This week at Light Reading’s Ethernet & SDN Conference speakers, panelists and attendees alike confirmed the need for simplicity and openness in delivering next generation services. In order to compete effectively, service providers need to find ways to simplify the service life-cycle by automating provisioning and accelerating service-turn-up for quicker time to revenue. Providers must also prepare their networks to support dynamic, on-demand and differentiated service options for business, mobile backhaul and cloud services.

In response, we have launched an integrated Carrier Ethernet 2.0 + software defined services (SDS) orchestration solution that includes CE 2.0 demarcation devices and access switches managed by our Converge™ EMS platform. Our solution is designed to automate the entire service lifecycle, accelerate the rollout of MEF CE 2.0 services and support stringent performance SLAs. The simplicity and openness of Transition Networks’ new single vendor Carrier Ethernet platform delivers unmatched value to providers by enabling simplified deployment and offering robust centralized management to gain network visibility and control from access to edge. (learn more: watch our NEW video)

CONVERGE™ EMS Services and Resource Model-DiagramOur Converge™ management platform features a RESTful API that allows for integration with SDN and other 3rd party applications for truly open and programmable networks. Its service-centric design reduces service provider operational expenses today while its open architecture, based on the Amartus Chameleon SDS platform, supports next-generation service delivery workflows.

As an active member of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) and proponent for Carrier Ethernet 2.0, we were one of the first to achieve CE 2.0 certification on our demarcation devices. The Converge™ EMS platform is also based on MEF CE 2.0 standards. Since then we have continued to develop our Carrier Ethernet portfolio with the introduction of our new 10Gbps Ethernet demarcation devices and access switches to address growing bandwidth needs for next generation services and provide end-to-end network visibility.
With "simplicity deployed" by Transition Networks, staying ahead of the competition has never been so simple. We make it simple to grow your revenue, grow your services and satisfy your customers. To learn more, please visit
