Transition Networks Brings New Carrier Ethernet Functionality to Madrid for SDN & NFV Show

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

The telecom service provider world is embracing Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN), and is thus undergoing a huge structural change.

The results will be significant to infrastructure economies. But making the change will be expensive, which puts pressure on carriers to maintain their revenues from traditional services.

That’s why we announced the new Liberator™ product suite at the 4th annual Network Virtualization Forum in Madrid, Spain last week.

We’re very excited about Liberator™, which includes three families of Carrier Ethernet network interface devices (NIDs) and a family of aggregation switches for carrier applications.

A key value proposition for Liberator™ is support for legacy interfaces, enabling existing services to be brought into the modern Carrier Ethernet network connectivity space. The products provide a comprehensive solution set for enterprise networking, cloud computing, backhaul of cell sites, and broadband access services.

Liberator™ delivers Serial, TDM and ISDN services alongside native Carrier Ethernet services using the same Carrier Ethernet CPE, and allows customers to retain control over when to migrate away from legacy services.

We showcased these new products in our exhibit booth at the Network Virtualization Forum, because those who attended this event were looking for innovations that will help them move into the NFV/SDN future while still providing their customers with the services they are accustomed to.

Also at the show, Adam Turner, our Head of Product Management for EMEA, delivered a presentation and participated in a panel on related topics:

Presentation: The Challenges of NFV in a Legacy Environment

Panel: What are the time-scales for SDN to have a real impact on Ethernet Services?

The promise of SDN/NFV networks to lower network costs and lead to more dynamic service deployments, makes it a very exciting time to be in this industry. Our new Liberator™ product family will facilitate a smooth transition to this new technology.

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

Wednesday, 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.

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
