Transition Networks

Founded in 1987 as Transition Engineering, the company's first products adapted coaxial cable to twisted-pair cables; connecting terminals to mainframe computers. The company was renamed Transition Networks, Inc. in 1995 and has experienced continued rapid growth as its products have evolved from general Ethernet networking equipment to a complete line of conversion technology solutions. In 1998, Transition Networks was purchased by Communication Systems, Inc.
Transition Networks offers networking connectivity solutions that make the conversion between disparate media types possible. The company designs and markets these media conversion technologies across a broad spectrum of networking protocols including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit, T1/E1, DS3, ATM, V.35 and many more.
The company works alongside leading networking vendors Nortel Networks, Hewlett Packard, 3COM, Cisco, Enterasys, Foundry, Extreme Networks, and others to provide conversion technology solutions that offer the necessary adaptations without affecting the performance, nature or appearance of the network to the users or the network devices.
Based in Minneapolis, Transition Networks distributes hardware-based connectivity solutions exclusively through a network of resellers in 50 countries, including Ingram Micro and Tech Data. Transition Networks is a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc., a publicly traded company (AMEX: JCS).
