Transition Receives CE 2.0 Certification
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Transition Networks Inc., the fiber access technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), today announced that it has received Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 certification of its new 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) S4140 Carrier Ethernet network interface device (NID) and S4224 Carrier Ethernet access switch.
The S4140 features four 1/10 GbE ports and gives carriers a cost-effective network demarcation device that can address growing bandwidth needs for next-generation services. The S4224 switch has 24 100/1000Mbps ports and four 10GbE-uplinks and aggregates traffic from demarcation devices for efficient transport to the core network. Both devices feature support for IEEE 1588v2 and synchronous Ethernet, the two leading synchronization standards for wireless backhaul applications.
Transition Networks S4140 and S4224 bring simplified service creation to the edge of the network through the Converge EMS service automation software. This allows carriers to provision a wide range of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services for mobile backhaul, business Ethernet, cloud assurance and carrier exchange E-Access services within hours from a central console.
