Mobile backhaul challenge is a major concern facing wireless service providers, and can now be resolved using Actelis (News - Alert) Networks’ new Ethernet Access Device (EAD). The company will showcase its EAD solution at the International CTIA (News - Alert) WIRELESS Expo in New Orleans (Booth 2558 inside the Mobile Backhaul Pavilion).
Mobile backhaul networks are becoming overloaded because of bandwidth-intensive applications due to the increasing usage of smartphones and tablets. The users generally used to boost backhaul capacity from the base station at the cell site with the help of adding fiber, bonding multiple T1/E1 lines or employing microwave.
In densely populated areas, the cost of deploying fiber is exorbitant and takes years to recoup any investment. The second option of bonding T1/E1 lines is also very expensive. For microwave solutions, it is mandatory to have line-of-sight so that it can function properly. As the EFM operates over the existing copper infrastructure, it is a good option to fiber, T1/E1 and microwave.
With the help of new Actelis ML700 EAD, wireless service providers can ease the broadband capacity strain placed on their networks. These devices are the first and only line of EADs that can provide up to 500Mbps of bandwidth with extended reach using standard EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) bonding by applying DMT (News - Alert) technology.
“Adoption of mobile applications and underlying wireless services is expanding at an unprecedented rate, and customers are relying on services that deliver the experience they expect,” said Joe Manuele, executive vice president of worldwide sales and customer support. “This network overloading, coupled with significant growth in wireless traffic and customer expectations to have high-quality, 24/7 wireless service regardless of their location, is fueling broadband Ethernet over copper backhaul adoption, especially for small cell wireless applications, because they are more efficient, cost effective and carriers can deploy them immediately.”
Actelis Networks was recently in the news when it announced it would be used by Pulsant as its choice vendor for deploying the carrier Ethernet broadband solutions that Actelis has planned.
