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 experienced continued rapid growth as its products evolved from general Ethernet networking equipment to a complete line of conversion technology solutions.
Transition Networks was purchased in 1998 by Communication Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: JCS). Communications Systems Inc. was formed in 1969 by a small group of investors from Hector, MN, led by Curtis A. Sampson. CSI has grown to establish a reputation as a reliable global innovator focusing on quality and customer service with partners and customers in over 100 countries.
In the fall of 2005, Communication Systems, Inc. integrated MILAN Technologies into Transition Networks. This integration expanded the Transition Networks product portfolio to include a complete line of multilayer switches. The company has since added technologies such as fiber NICs, CWDM, and SFPs to further expand its offerings to customers wanting to manage and utilize the benefits of fiber optics.
Communications Systems, Inc. purchased Patapsco Communications in 2011 on behalf of Transition Networks. With this acquisition, Transition added industry leading technologies such as: circuit emulation services (CESoIP), also known as TDM over IP or pseudowire, which provides a packet interconnection for existing TDM equipment to move traffic across an IP/MPLS/Ethernet Network, and a variety of ISDN products including ISDN over IP (ISDNoIP).
Today, Transition Networks, Inc. offers a full suite of fiber networking products that enable you to deliver and manage your network traffic reliably over fiber optics. The company's Transition Networks brand of media converters makes conversion between disparate media types possible; while helping companies leverage their existing network infrastructure. Based in Minneapolis, Transition Networks distributes hardware-based connectivity solutions exclusively through a network of resellers in more than 100 countries.
