Smart cities plus data security drives Transition Networks at 2019 BICSI Fall show

Sept. 27, 2019
At the company's booth #1038, BICSI attendees will see how Transition Networks' Managed PoE++ Switch (SM24TBT2DPA), paired with Berk-Tek's LANmark-XTP high performance cabling, can power Cree Lighting's PoE lights for smart building infrastructure uLANs.

Edge connectivity specialist Transition Networks announced it will showcase technology that allows secure data transmission, supports intelligent buildings and simplifies smart city deployment at next week's 2019 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas.

On Monday, Sept. 30 at 5:50 p.m. PT, Transition Networks Product Line Manager, Curt Carlson, will present a quick demonstration of the company's Mini Gigabit Ethernet Unidirectional Media Converters, as part of the annual "What's New, What's It Do?" sessions at the BICSI Theater inside the exhibit hall.

The company says its "easy-to-use, low-cost media converters serve as data diodes to improve data security by limiting data flows to one direction on critical network links." The new media converters are positioned for use in secure environments including military, government agency or financial institution networks.

At its exhibition booth, Transition Networks will display more solutions for secure networks, including its Scorpion-USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Adapter, which enables laptops, tablets or other devices that do not have a fiber port to connect to a fiber-based Ethernet network through the USB port. The adapter is intended for use in applications where wireless transmission is not the preferred technology due to security concerns, or where copper lacks the bandwidth, distance or security for sharing data-intensive files.

At BICSI Fall, Transition will also promote smart building infrastructure through the use of dedicated utility LANs (uLANs) which support the many non-traditional Ethernet devices now connected and powered by the IP network.

BICISI attendees will observe how Transition Networks' Managed PoE++ Switch (SM24TBT2DPA), paired with Berk-Tek's LANmark-XTP high performance cabling, powers Cree Lighting's PoE lights within the Transition Network booth. Via the uLAN platform, the companies say they aim to provide "seamless support, expertise and superior products for any facilities manager looking to gain the benefits of smart lighting, including energy efficiency, streamlined maintenance and reduced operating costs."

At the show, Transition Networks will also emphasize how it continues to develop solutions that support IoT applications, and will demonstrate its award-winning product, the Self-Enclosed Managed Hardened Gigabit Ethernet PoE++ Switch. The switch was recently awarded a 2019 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution World magazine. It enables smart city applications by delivering connectivity and power in a form factor specifically designed for the remote outdoor locations of sensors, cameras, access points and other systems located throughout a smart city. The company says the switch's features make connecting, powering and managing smart city devices simple, via features such as Scan and Go configuration, Auto Power Reset and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) remote troubleshooting.

"As organizations look to enable connections to new devices, whether in secure fiber-to-the-desk networks, intelligent buildings or smart city applications, Transition Networks continues to evolve our product portfolio to meet these needs," says Anita Kumar, Director, Product Management and Software Engineering of Transition Networks. "Our solutions emphasize simplicity and security, enabling organizations to confidently and easily implement intelligent networking solutions, and we look forward to sharing our solutions with the BICSI audience."

The conference takes place Sept. 29 – Oct. 3, 2019 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center in Las Vegas. Transition Networks will showcase its products in booth #1038.
