Mission Statement:

"To manufacture quality products that provide the highest level of redundancy with technological excellence to the world's mission critical networks".

Company Background:

Shore Microsystems has been designing and manufacturing networking equipment since its formation in 1984 by two Bell Laboratories engineers.  Since 1994, our company has focused exclusively on understanding network failures and designing quality products to deliver high-availability, fault tolerance, and maximum uptime for Ethernet Networks.  Shore manufacturers Ethernet Link Protector®s and Bypass Switches/TAPS for advanced networks that require this level of redundancy.  Our company has numerous satisfied clients with commercial, industrial, and military applications. We pride ourselves in delivering quality products for advanced networks and to demanding clients.  Shore Microsystems is the industry leader in Redundant Ethernet LAN technology. Thank you for your interest in our company.
