Access to broadband solutions is at the top of the priority list for many a commercial business. As data consumption intensifies, more innovative broadband equipment is in high demand. Fortunately, Actelis (News - Alert) offers its ML600 Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) to enable the delivery of high-speed carrier Ethernet over the existing network infrastructure.
As captured on this Actelis page, the company’s EADs are bringing new capabilities to broadband solutions with compact and cost-effective Ethernet in the First Mile. The incorporation of the unique EFMplus
technology ensures the delivery of broadband solutions with impressive reach, reliability and rate.
The ML600 EADs are easily deployed in Point-to-Point configurations, Copper Add-Drop Chains or as the Point-to-Multi-Point configuration CPE thanks to Actelis’ EFM aggregation platforms. The company can also enable the extension of Ethernet services up to 15 miles beyond the central office with the use of its XR239 EFM Repeaters.
Plus, the company’s EADs are completely interoperable with any standard Ethernet switch, router or hub. And, thanks to compliance with the Metro Ethernet Forum (News - Alert) specifications, the ML600 EADs will also seamlessly integrated into Carrier Ethernet networks. To extend the availability of broadband solutions, legacy networks can be connected using a variety of ports and features to extend the capabilities of the EADs.
The creation of intelligent Ethernet access edge is enabled with the ML640 and ML650 EAD models from Actelis. This deployment strategy also enables enhanced traffic management and advanced bandwidth control. With Ethernet Virtual Connections, flexible service provisioning is coupled with flexible mapping and Quality of Service capabilities. As a result, efficiency of access is maximized for the available bandwidth.
With the MetaASSIST View, EADs within the ML600 series are managed In- and Out-of-Band. A graphical craft application makes the data easy to read and assess, while the multiplatform Element Management System ensures accessibility. Standard TL1 command line interface, as well as SNMP with standard MIBs make up the management protocols and help to ensure seamless integration with third-party solutions.
Access to broadband solutions continues to be a hot topic, especially for those companies and users within rural areas. The technology to ensure these individuals can gain access to the solutions they need exists, extending it out to their location is another challenge altogether. With access to tools such as those offered by Actelis, however, access to new capabilities may be closer than we think.
