As we evolve in a more global economy, municipalities must be able to coexist with federal and state governments. In order to strengthen these relationships, entities must focus on infrastructure to support and deliver broadband solutions to everyone, both residential and commercial.
According to a recent report, as the reliance on IP-based technology increases, applications that are bandwidth dependent like video conferencing, cloud computing and file sharing, become more relevant to broadband solutions. Small to large businesses are no longer being satisfied by traditional legacy solutions and are requiring broadband solutions that can bring about more return on investments when it comes to new fiber for build outs all over the country.
The answer at hand is Actelis’ (News - Alert) approach to broadband solutions, Carrier Ethernet over copper. This solution is able to meet advanced broadband service demands while economically balancing the collaboration with copper plants within the existing network. Metro Ethernet extension and SME data services are two of the most common applications used to deliver broadband solutions over a high bandwidth Internet connection.
Using existing copper infrastructure gives Ethernet providers the advantage with their services. Carrier Ethernet over copper solutions provided by Actelis allows those providers to offer a more cost effective scalable resource and at higher quality. Actelis has a network series, Ethernet Access Devices that are able to deliver as much as 100 Mbps of Ethernet services along any existing copper lines.
Tests have proven that this approach to broadband solutions is the most cost effective delivery of bandwidth to customers on a massive scale and at this level of quality. Using the existing copper lines, Actelis broadband solutions eliminates the need to invest in costly fiber trenches and associated infrastructure. And it doesn’t lack in technology either. Using this solution can offer customers a wide range of service and support like video, voice and data applications.
Not incorporating various municipalities with government is a big risk, especially if it doesn’t start with basic broadband offerings. In areas that do put a focus on broadband solutions, there is a vibrant downtown, bustling town centers and more. A founding director of the Metropolitan Economy Initiative says that there is a fundamental disconnect between how people live work in a majority of places in the country compared to how it is governed.
Bruce Katz, a founding director of the Metropolitan Economy Initiative at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., says the mismatch between the economy and the government obviously undermines the way businesses compete and can successfully run a business. And businesses, big or small, depend on broadband solutions and services. There is a need and there is now a way to solve the problem.
