ComNet introduces ComWorx VL line

Dallas, TX. October 12, 2010, ComNet, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, is introducing the ComWorx VL line to satisfy the demand for a cost-effective line of Ethernet transmission products. This line consists of Ethernet media converters, a new Ethernet-over-coaxial-cable (EoVDSL) product and managed Ethernet switches. The new ComWorx VL line is the company’s entry into Ethernet products that are commercial-rated and designed for benign operating environments. The entire ComWorx VL line has been released for sale.

"This new product line is the result of demand for Ethernet equipment that did not require the same level of environmental hardening offered by the traditional ComNet ComWorx product line," states Andrew Acquarulo Jr., ComNet President and COO. "In many security applications, Ethernet equipment is installed in locations where temperature extremes are rare. The ComWorx VL meets those commercial environmental requirements and can offer the user cost savings in the process," said Acquarulo.

"Introducing the ComWorx VL lower-cost product offering as an extension of ValueLine brand makes sense from a product positioning perspective," commented Frank Haight, ComNet Vice President of Marketing.

"This new line of media converters, Ethernet-over-Coax and managed Ethernet switches have been designed for applications where functionality and performance is mandatory, but cost is a significant consideration. In our test marketing of the ComWorx VL line, we have found that the ComNet customers who previewed these products appreciated the quality of the products, but the difference to them was that they were backed by a real US-based company that offers the level of support needed to ensure success," Haight concluded.

ComNet is headquartered in Danbury, CT, USA in a state of the art manufacturing and production facility housing the key functions of engineering, production, shipping, sales, customer care, marketing and more. ComNet is an international company with offices located in Leeds in the United Kingdom covering Europe, Africa and Asia, and an office in Dubai covering the Middle East.
