Park Assist Selects Transition Networks’ Hardened PoE Switches for Global Parking Sensor Implementations

Transition Networks, Inc., the fiber integration technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc., today announced that Park Assist, a global business intelligence technology company that designs and implements camera-based parking guidance systems, has selected Transition Networks’ hardened Ethernet switches for its worldwide parking sensor client implementations.

Transition Networks’ hardened Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches are currently being used at over 30 locations operated by Park Assist or one of its global resellers and are installed in the power cabinets at each site. These devices replace several switch models previously obtained from different vendors, which had resulted in slowed company deployment processes and increased costs – due to the large knowledge base required to handle multiple switch types.

By utilizing Transition Networks as its single-source switch supplier, Park Assist has decreased product configuration and implementation time by 33 percent, and reduced equipment costs by approximately 30 percent.

“I was looking for a switch that offered a good balance between cost and features,” said Evan Goldman, Director of IT Services for Park Assist. “Shifting to the Transition Networks’ suite of products has lowered costs considerably, saved implementation time, and simplified the support structure for these devices across the business. In addition, we appreciate just how responsive and communicative our Transition Networks’ account manager and support personnel were throughout the sales and installation process.”

Transition Networks offers a family of more than 40 managed and unmanaged hardened Layer 2 switches for Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet networks. Many of the switches feature flexible fiber-optic uplink capabilities using small form-factor pluggable (SFP) connectors.

Transition Networks offers a complete line of hardened Ethernet switching products, offering 10-, 12- and 18-port models with lifetime warranties, which match the needs of hardened network infrastructures. Transition Networks’ managed PoE switches are hardened devices designed to reliably operate in harsh environments, such as those found on factory floors, outdoor enclosures or other hazardous environments.

“The breadth of our product family is a perfect fit for Park Assist which made its decision both on technology excellence and our ability to support the company in its worldwide implementations,” said Tony LeFebvre, Director of Product Management for Transition Networks. “Our hardened switches are cost-effective, provide exceptional features including a user-friendly web interface, and give customers the flexibility to easily configure the hardware according to their unique operating requirements.”
