New Gigabit Ethernet NIC from Transition Networks Brings Secure PoE to Fiber-Connected Desktops

Two-Port N-GXE-POE-xx-01 PCIe NIC Enables Use of Powered Device Even While PC is in S1 Sleep Mode



MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 15, 2015. Transition Networks, Inc., the fiber access technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), today announced a new two-port Gigabit Ethernet network adapter that supports a fiber-optic network connection to a computer and a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connection to a voice over IP (VoIP) phone or other powered device.

Transition Networks N-GXE-POE-xx-01

The new Transition Networks N-GXE-POE-xx-01 network interface card (NIC) provides a solution for organizations that have fiber to the desktop for increased data security but still need to support PoE powered devices. The N-GXE-POE-xx-01 includes both a 1000Base-SX multimode fiber port for a computer connection and a switched 10/100/1000BaseT RJ-45 PoE port supporting the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard for the powered device.

The N-GXE-POE-xx-01 is a PCIe form factor NIC with added data traffic switching intelligence between the fiber port and the adjacent RJ45 copper port. The NIC preserves all data priority and virtual LAN tagging to ensure high quality of service for VoIP communications. The device draws power from the PC and can operate even when the PC is in S1 sleep mode, preserving VoIP / server connectivity even when the computer is not in use.
