Carrier Ethernet Media Converters

Carrier Ethernet (CE) was introduced in the early 2000s as a way to extend Ethernet to provide Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity. CE 2.0 is today’s standard, offering native transport of IP packets, but with changes to key network characteristics to extend a LAN protocol into a WAN application. These changes include: multiple classes of service to deliver different tiers of performance; interconnectedness for traffic handoffs between networks and carriers; fault management and performance monitoring.

Carrier Ethernet media converters are utilized to bridge between network types or extend network connections while also providing the added functionality for CE 2.0 networks. These converters support a variety of features, such as IEEE 802.3ah and SyncE, which provide a cost effective solution that reduces OpEx and CapEx for your network. Carrier Ethernet media converters ensure superior performance, high availability, and SLA assurance for you CE 2.0 network.

Transition Networks’ Carrier Ethernet Media Converters provide the added functionality and performance for your network. Our converters are available in two form factors, chassis-based slide-in cards and stand-alone units to best fit your networking needs. Reducing your OpEx and CapEx has never been so easy with our Carrier Ethernet converters. View our Carrier Ethernet Media Converters below.
