Actelis Cites Momentum with COLT as well as with Intelligent Transportation

Actelis has shipped its one millionth Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) port to Colt, which operates metro network in major European cities. Colt's Ethernet Services portfolio includes any-to-any and tree services (Ethernet Private Network), enhanced resilience and low latency. Colt has built on its extensive and wholly owned fibre network in Europe by deploying "Ethernet in the First Mile" technology in 12 countries, making its high speed Ethernet services available to customers beyond its fibre footprint.

Colt first began to deploy EFM access capabilities with Actelis' built-in EFMplus technology in 2007, making it one the pioneering providers in Europe to deliver EFM access. EFM currently presents a smart complement to fiber or traditional DSL in 12 countries of Colt's 35,000 km network infrastructure connecting more than 100 European cities. Colt can deliver its networking and IT Managed Services solutions with bandwidth over copper up to 40 Mbps.

Separately, Actelis announced that Nassau County Department of Public Works (NCDPW) has deployed the company's highly sophisticated Ethernet-based Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). The agency's newly deployed ITS solution has enabled NCDPW to more economically and efficiently manage its new IP-based traffic controllers and video surveillance cameras over both fiber and copper networks.

Communications from the county's Traffic Management Center (TMC) to each traffic controller and video camera run over hybrid fiber for long haul and then out to each hub, which is connected via copper pairs to Actelis' Ethernet Access Devices (EADs). The agency made the move to deploy Actelis' environmentally hardened ML680 and ML624 (EADs) because the access gear could serve the dual purpose of leveraging both fiber and copper-based networks running through Nassau County. Additionally, NCDPW selected Actelis' environmentally hardened ITS solution to combat lightning strikes and other storm-related events common to the area which continually brought down the legacy analog equipment deployed in the early 1970s, according to Jeff Lindgren, traffic engineer at NCDPW.
