Transition Networks to Present on Fiber's Role in the Video Security and Surveillance Network at BICSI Winter Conference

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - January 13, 2010) - Transition Networks Inc., the switching and conversion technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCS), announced today that Product Manager Curt Carlson will be presenting at the BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition, to be held January 17-21, 2010 in Orlando at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort. The presentation, titled "Fiber's Role in the Video Security and Surveillance Network," is scheduled for Wednesday, January 20, 2010 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. ET.

Video security and surveillance has become increasingly important the last few years, not only as a topic of conversation, but also as a corporate and government strategy reality. Most video security and surveillance networks utilize a copper-based cabling infrastructure. Whether the cabling is coax for traditional analog cameras or unshielded twisted-pair for newer IP-based cameras, copper cabling poses several issues that could limit the design or physical reach of a video security network. Integrating fiber optic cabling into these networks will address many of these issues.

The presentation will show video security professionals several options for deploying fiber into their security systems. It will also explain how media conversion can be used in conjunction with fiber optics to achieve a seamless network transition in video security and surveillance applications. Participants will discuss how the design of a video network (coaxial, un-shielded twisted pair (UTP) or fiber-optics) can have tremendous impact on the quality, bandwidth and distance capabilities of a video security and surveillance system. Mr. Carlson will also explore how to leverage new technologies within existing networks without having to "rip out the wires" or make significant financial investments.
