Transition Networks Showcasing Extensive Fiber Access Product Portfolio at Interop 2008

Company Aims to Give Customers the Right Tools to Meet Broad Demand of Today's Networks

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - Transition Networks Inc., the conversion and switching technology expert, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (AMEX: JCS), will be showcasing their broad portfolio of fiber access network infrastructure products at this year's Interop 2008 conference. Transition's innovative products are aimed at providing network managers the right tools to meet the increased demand from today's networks. During the show, which runs from April 29 through May 1 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Transition will be presenting their Technology Toolkit Series. This series of presentations highlights how networks have become more diverse and new applications are forcing a broader range of product requirements.

"Today's network managers are converging networks, extending networks, managing remotely, and providing more bandwidth while trying to control costs and maintain existing networks," said Patrick Schaber, Director of Marketing at Transition Networks. "They can't afford to be single-minded in their approach to meeting these demands. They need a flexible set of solutions that allow them to manage their growth and allow their networks to evolve."

Transition will illustrate how its broad base of fiber networking gear allows network managers to manage the growth companies face while still maintaining their existing infrastructure. Market leading copper-to-fiber conversion and Ethernet switching products aimed at Enterprise, Security, Data Center, Industrial and Service Provider customers will be on demonstration by Transition's representatives.
