Transition Networks' full line of feature rich media converters transparently connect one type of media, or cabling, to another – typically copper to fiber. By bridging the gap between legacy copper infrastructures and fiber growth, our media converters provide an economical path towards extending the distance of an existing network, extending the life of non-fiber based equipment, or extending the distance between two like devices.
Available in stand-alone, modular chassis-based, or PCI powered configurations, Transition Networks‘ media converters offer copper to fiber and fiber to fiber media conversion in the following supported protocols: Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, Power-over-Ethernet, 100/100, 10/100/1000, ATM, T1/E1, DS3/E3, POTS, RS232, RS485 and more.
With industry leading advanced features such as Auto-Negotiation, AutoCross™, Link Pass Through, Far End Fault, and Automatic Link Restoration - Transition's media converters make an invisible component in the physical layer "visible" to network managers; allowing more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free 24x7 worldwide technical support, have made Transition's media converters the #1 choice among industry IT professionals.
Solution 1: Power over Ethernet to the Network Edge
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enables you to transmit power and data to the furthest points of your network and realize its full potential.
Transition Networks offersPower-over-Ethernet switches with built-in fiber interfaces to manage powered devices – including IP video cameras, Voice-over-IP (VoIP) phones and wireless access points (WAPs) – anywhere in your network. Plus, our managed and unmanaged PoE switches feature extended operating temperatures for the most remote outdoor locations and the harshest factory floor environments.
Solution 2: Enterprise Network
With the popularity of fiber optic connectivity, Enterprise organizations are choosing fiber optic cabling to ensure superior data security.
Copper cabling is easy to tap. Any attempts to tap fiber cabling, however, usually involve link loss accompanied by traps sent by the network management system (NMS). Transition Networks offers a wide range of high-density chassis-based copper-to-fiber solutions for connecting fiber cabling to the copper ports on enterprise or core Ethernet switches.
While Stand-alone media converters work well at the end points of a star topology where fiber is converted back to copper for the horizontal UTP Cabling to any networked device, PCI-power media converters can foster cost-effective fiber migration at the desktop for VoIP applications or a copper network interface card (NIC). A wide range of fiber optic NICs is also available for fiber-to-the-desk (FTTD) connectivity.
PoE technology can reduce network cabling complexities often associated with IP telephone installations by transporting both data and power over the UTP cable. PoE is supported in switches injectors, and media converters to meet your individual networking requirements.
