Actelis Launches New Ethernet-over-Copper for Mobile Backhaul

Actelis Networks introduced a new Ethernet-over-Copper solution aimed at mobile backhaul. The new ML650 EAD, one of the first products to receive MEF 18 certification from the Metro Ethernet Forum, delivers TDM and broadband services over a converged packet network.

Actelis said that as mobile networks evolve to pure packet-based networks, they will still require the support of TDM circuits and precise network synchronization. Its new ML650 EAD product family offers pseudowire capabilities (PWEEE) with clocking accuracy and resiliency. The company's pseudowire guarantees synchronization equal to, and even better than, that provided by traditional T1 and E1 circuits.

The platform offers up to 100 Mbps of symmetrical Ethernet over existing copper using up to 8 copper pairs per unit. It features a built-in Ethernet switch with 2.8 Gbps of non-blocking capacity.http://www.actelis.com
