TN Simplifies CE 2.0 Service Delivery with Convergeā„¢ 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 Convergeā„¢ 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.

CONVERGEā„¢ EMS Services and Resource Model-DiagramOur Convergeā„¢ 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 Convergeā„¢ 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

Transition Networks Announced Latest Product Releases at BICSI

September 24th, 2013

Transition Networks Expands Switching and Media Conversion Portfolios with New Managed PoE+ and 10GbE Copper to Fiber Conversion Products

Transition Networks announced the release of a new 24-port commercial grade 24 port managed PoE+ switch and 10Gigabit Ethernet copper to fiber stand-alone and slide-in card media converters at the BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition last week in Las Vegas. Both products showcase Transition Networksā€™ commitment to providing affordable fiber integration solutions for todayā€™s data-rich networks. Customers were ecstatic to learn more about key performance improvements addressed with these new products relating to bandwidth, latency, scalability, and reliability.

SM24TAT4XA 24-port Managed PoE+ Switch

The increased demand for data has driven the advancement of PoE powered network devices, such as pan-tilt zoom (PTZ) security cameras, netbooks, feature-rich IP telephones for video conferencing applications, and IEEE 802.11n wireless access points. These advanced devices consume more power and have increased the need for additional power output from PoE Ethernet switches. In turn, the rapid growth of data continues to drive demand for high speed links in networks of all varieties and sizes.

Transition’s new Enterprise 24-port PoE+ Switch is designed to meet the increased demand for data-rich networks and additional power output. The SM24TAT4XA supports the IEEE802.3at PoE+ standard, which provides increased power up to 25.5 W to PoE powered network devices. This new managed switch supports (24) PoE+ ports and an additional (4) 1G/10G open pluggable MSA compatible SFP+ slots for increased bandwidth and scalability.

ION x4120-1048 10GbE Copper to Fiber Media Converter

The new ION x4120-1048 is the latest addition to Transition Networksā€™ ION Platform, a family of intelligent optical networking devices. Designed for datacenters and high speed connections linking buildings in campus area networks, the ION x4120-1048 serves to meet the growing demand for products that support the 10GBase-T IEEE 802.3an standard.

Network managers have a current need to resolve disparities between new equipment with 10GBase-T ports and legacy 10Gigabit Ethernet products with fiber ports and are often faced with the task of converting RJ-45 copper ports to fiber, or vice versa, to maximize their return on investment of new 10Gigabit Ethernet switches that support both open SFP+ ports for fiber and RJ-45 ports for copper. The ION x4120-1048 addresses these network challenges by converting between one 10GBase-T RJ-45 port and one pluggable, MSA compatible 10GBase-X fiber SFP+ port, giving network managers the flexibility to run 10Gigabit Ethernet over the medium of their choice at various transmission distances.

The ION x4120-1048 is available in both stand-alone and chassis card form factors. The stand-alone unit offers the unique feature of in-band remote management when linked to a managed chassis card. This, coupled with Transparent Link Pass Through, Loopback, DMI, and Automatic Link Restoration network trouble shooting features of the ION x4120-1048, provides network managers with end-to-end link visibility.
