MINNEAPOLIS -- Transition Networks Inc., the conversion technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communication Supply Inc., today announced the industry's first IEEE Std. 802.3ah-compliant media converter product available for testing at The University of New Hampshire's InterOperability Laboratory. The company's 10/100/1000 media converters are designed to support Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) or Fiber- To-The-Premise (FTTP) deployments such as E-Line and E-LAN, as well as enterprise markets seeking a common platform for remote management of offsite stations.

The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) tests networking and data communications products. The university established the laboratory in 1988 with the dual mission of providing a neutral environment to foster multi-vendor interoperability and conformance to data communications networking standards while educating students for future employment in the industry. The laboratory has since grown into one of the industry's premier independent proving grounds for new technologies. Transition Networks is the first to test a IEEE Std. 802.3ah-compliant media converter.

"The delivery of a standard compliant, remotely-managed media converter that can fully manage conversion between 10/100/1000Base-T and 1000Base-LX or SX signals at Central Office (CO) and Customer Premises (CP) is a success for our customers," said Bill Schultz, vice president of marketing at Transition Networks. "The fact that our product is available for testing at the UNH-IOL is an honor for us. Transition Networks continues to be committed to delivering the highest quality products to our customers, with great reliability. The UNH-IOL and IEEE stamp of approval supports our mission."
