Actelis Supplies Ethernet-over-Copper in Canada's Northwest Territories

Actelis Networks announced the deployment of its broadband solutions across a 440-thousand-square-mile region in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The rollout across the sparsely populated region connects a community of more than 40 thousand people to schools, health care centers and other public services. The network leverages existing copper-based infrastructure coupled with Actelis' EFMplus technology. Actelis' EFMplus technology served as the foundation for the aggregation switches and Ethernet Access Devices (EADs), which have been engineered to provide high bandwidth and reliable connectivity at very long distances over the copper network. This enabled the Northwest Territories to deliver services reliably and economically to every location almost immediately, regardless of distance.


"In order to construct a network that can provide the necessary bandwidth, reliability and access in such remote locations, satellite, line-of-sight microwave systems or a fiber-based network are often considered to be the only alternatives," said Joe Manuele, executive vice president of worldwide sales and customer service at Actelis. "However, a fiber-based buildout typically require millions of dollars in investment to lay new fiber, plus months, if not years, of effort involving digging trenches, negotiating rights-of-way agreements and so on."http://www.actelis.com
