Actelis DS ML620 EAD
The ML620 Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) from Actelis Networks® enable delivery of high-speed carrier Ethernet services over the existing copper and fiber infrastructure. The ML620s are intelligent, compact EADs that deliver up to 100 Mbps of symmetrical Ethernet traffic with fiber quality over existing copper pairs.
Available in either 2, 4 or 8 copper pairs with optional SFP fiber configurations*, the ML622/ ML624/ML628 EADs can be deployed in a Point-to-Point configuration, optional copper Add-Drop chain, or as the CPE in a Point- to-Multi-Point configuration with Actelis’ EFM switches. With its superior performance, extensive functionality and low cost, the ML620 EAD platforms offer rapid service delivery and allow for complete utilization of the existing network infrastructure.
The ML620 EAD platforms are interoperable with any standard Ethernet switch, router or hub. Compliant with Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications, ML620 EAD systems seamlessly integrate into carrier Ethernet networks. Equipped with four 10/100Base-T Ethernet interfaces and an optional 100Base- FX Small Form Factor (SFP) port, the ML620 EAD platforms allow assignment of a service or a customer per port. A DS3/E3 uplink can be used to connect to legacy networks instead of the 100Base-FX SFP.
The ML620 EAD models let service providers create an intelligent Ethernet access edge with bandwidth limiting per ingress port and traffic shaping on the Ethernet Access uplink (HSL). The ML620 is fully compliant with the MEF 9 and 14 specifications.
Powered by Actelis Networks’ award-winning EFMplus™ technology, the rate, reach and reliability are increased significantly using advanced Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) and Dynamic Rate Boost (DRB) techniques. This technology doubles the rate/reach in real-world field deployments. Combined with Actelis industry-leading XR239 EFM Repeaters, the reach can be extended even further. All ML620 EAD models provide 802.1q VLAN-aware wire-speed bridging, double tagging (VLAN stacking) for end-user VLAN transparency, L2 (Ethernet priority) and L3 (ToS/Diff-Serv) classification with four traffic classes, RSTP/ STP, bandwidth monitoring, and Multicast/Broadcast limiting.
The ML620 EADs provide proactive and dynamic tools for enhanced trouble shooting and monitoring capabilities. Advanced Carrier-class EFM OAM, including 802.3ah, CFM (802.1ag) and Y.1731 (ITU), are incorporated, offering both physical link as well as service level end- to-end advanced troubleshooting mechanisms.
The ML620 EAD platforms can be managed In- and Out-of-Band by the MetaASSIST™ View graphical craft application and via the multi-platform Element Management System, MetaASSIST EMS. The management protocols include standard command line interface and SNMP using standard MIBs for seamless integration with third-party Network Management Systems (NMS).
