Transition Networks' managed S3280 NID provides advanced packet performance metering and service creation directly at customer premises and cell sites.

The S3280 is designed for business Ethernet and mobile backhaul deployments.The S3280 is a multi-service NID that provides SLA-assurance and advanced fault management that is certified to MEF standards. It delivers IEEE 802.1ag Service OAM, ITU Y.1731 Performance Monitoring and IEEE 802.3ah Link OAM.

The S3280 supports advance features such as IPv6 and IPv4, VLANs, QoS, bandwidth allocation, ring protection, jumbo frames and numerous security features.

The S3280 can be managed via Web, CLI and SNMP (v1, v2c & v3). The product also supports SSL/SSH, RADIUS and Management VLAN.

The S3280 offers multiple power inputs for redundancy and DC inputs for extended operating temperature in extreme environments.

The SFP ports are triple speed and support 100Mbps, 1000Mbps or SGMII SFPs. CWDM and Bi-Di SFPs are also supported , allowing for flexible network architectures.
