Transition Networks – Because They Are!
This quote from our South Central Regional Sales Manager Alphie Kilgus is one of my favorite quotes. We say it a lot here at Transition Networks—because networks are always “in transition”. We’ve already witnessed the progression of Ethernet networks from 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps to 1000 Mbps. And now the adoption time for higher
Using Dual-Speed SFPs to Reduce the Cost and Hassle of Storing Spare Parts, and Improve Network Logistics
Spare SFPs anyone? The hassle of stocking spare small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers is a challenge for many enterprises. With Gigabit Ethernet (1 Gig) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 Gig) network connections growing, and an evolution from 1 Gig to 10 Gig, many companies have a never-ending need for extra SFPs. Network downtime while
Should the Security Camera Network be Separate from the Enterprise Network?
In the era of analog security cameras, the network connections were via coaxial cable and not the twisted pair copper cabling used for most enterprise network applications. This meant that enterprises needed to build a separate and dedicated security network to connect these devices to monitors and video management systems (VMS). But the latest security

Device Management System: The Little-Known Technology that Makes It Easier to Manage PoE+ Devices
While it’s safe to say that Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) was invented to support VoIP phones, I would argue that it has a bigger impact on network managers’ lives by making it much easier and more cost effective to connect multiple types of remote network devices to the network. The simplicity with which it’s possible to connect
Solving the Legacy Network Cabling Conundrum
Upgrading enterprise network cabling is expensive. Not only is the cable and installation costly, but so is removal and disposal of the old cabling, making it tempting to leave the legacy cabling in place, snaked through the walls and ceilings of your enterprise. But there are advantages to doing so, the cabling can be re-used.

Benefits of Combining Ethernet Extenders with DMS Switches
All network managers are familiar with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the ubiquitous network management system for Ethernet networks. But most are less familiar with Device Management Systems (DMS) a technology for managing the powered devices (PD) that are connected to Power-over-Ethernet plus (PoE+) switches. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through three newly
Does Every Network Upgrade Need a New Cable Plant? No, Says Network World Article
Is a cable upgrade required for every network technology upgrade? That might be industry convention, but it’s not always true. Cabling upgrades are costly and are one of the most time intensive aspects of a network upgrade. Using new media converter technology can help leverage an existing cable plant and reduce the need for cabling
