Transition Networks Brings Additional Flexibility to Fiber-to-the-Desktop Applications with New PCIe Dual Speed Ethernet Fiber Network Interface Card

Open SFP Slot in NIC Allows 100/1000 Mbps Network Speeds and Increased Fiber Media Choices to Meet More Network Applications


Transition Networks, Inc., a leading provider of edge connectivity solutions, has announced it has expanded its offering for government and enterprise fiber-to-the-desktop (FTTD) applications through the addition of a new PCIe Dual Speed 100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Fiber Network Interface Card (NIC) with an open small form-factor pluggable (SFP) design, offering flexible connectivity and simplified ordering and logistics.
The Transition Networks dual speed N-GXE-SFP-02 fully complies with IEEE 802.3u and 802.3z standards. The NIC auto-negotiates between 100 and 1000 Mbps Ethernet network speeds based on the inserted SFP, making upgrading networks from Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet speeds simple since the same NIC can be used in either environment. The card supports industry-standard IEEE 802.3 SFPs to accommodate either multimode or single mode fiber optic cabling. This flexibility means government agencies and corporations can stock one NIC for much of their 100/1000 Mbps fiber optic network needs. The new NIC also supports Wake-on-LAN (WoL), allowing a PC to be woken up by a network message. WoL allows network administrators to perform off-hours maintenance at a remote site without having to dispatch a technician. It also provides full-duplex bandwidth capacity to support high-end servers. With advanced functions like VLAN filtering, link aggregation, smart load balancing, failover, support for PXE and UEFI Boot and more, the network adapter provides enhanced performance, flexible configuration and secure networking. The N-GXE-xx-02 Series NICs are compatible with Windows 10 in addition to Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, and 2012, as well as Linux and FreeBSD.
