The demand for efficient broadband solutions has reached an all-time high as requirements for wireless backhaul and mobile bandwidth consume and tax our networks more each day.
Actelis (News - Alert) Networks, known as the Broadband Acceleration Company, has managed to stay ahead of the curve by recognizing the need for providing quality broadband solutions at affordable costs early on. Not only does Actelis meet the demand for broadband with its Ethernet access devices, aggregation switches and EFM repeaters, but the company’s mission also includes providing Ethernet over copper broadband to the unserved and underserved regions of the U.S.
And when Actelis released its line of Broadband Accelerators (BBAs), the solutions became a game changer for the company, its customers and the broadband industry in general. The release of Actelis’ new BBA came at a critical time for nearly 800 U.S. carriers as the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) released our country’s first National Broadband map illustrating the digital divide that still exists in America -- an issue Actelis is all too familiar with addressing.
Actelis BBAs provide the only cost-effective and fully standards-based solution to deliver high-bandwidth ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ services. The solution increases the reach of ADSL services by more than 50 percent, including boosting rates by as much as 100 percent on typical loops and more than 400 percent on longer loops. According to the company, as a result, carriers can reach the unserved and underserved markets to expand the footprint where they can deliver IPTV (News - Alert) service or streaming and Over-the-Top (OTT) video services.
The Actelis BBA was recently recognized with the 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine “Product of the Year,” award demonstrating that the BBAs can have a significant and positive impact on the growth of universal broadband as it provides U.S. carriers with a powerful yet easy-to-install, cost-effective universal broadband solution.
With the company’s new BBA, Actelis believes that carriers can now view the digital divide as an opportunity, not a challenge, to accelerate their success by significantly increasing their broadband penetration rates and coverage area for DSL-based services, according to the company.
