Ethernet Access Devices: ML620/630

The ML620/ML630 Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) from Actelis Networks® enable delivery of high-speed carrier Ethernet services over existing copper and fiber infrastructure. The ML620/ML630s are intelligent, compact EADs that deliver up to 100 Mbps of symmetrical Ethernet traffic with fiber quality over existing copper pairs.

Available in either 4 or 8 copper pair configurations, with optional SFP fiber, the ML620/ML630 EADs can be deployed in a point-to-point configuration or as the CPE in a point-to-multipoint configuration with Actelis’ EFM aggregation switches. With its superior performance, extensive functionality and low cost, the ML620/ML630 EADs offer rapid service delivery and allow for complete utilization of the existing network infrastructure.

The ML620/ML630 EADs are interoperable with any standard Ethernet switch, router, or hub. Compliant with Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications, the ML620/ML630 EAD seamlessly integrate into carrier Ethernet networks. Equipped with 4 10/100Base-T Ethernet interfaces and an optional 100/1000Base-FX* small form factor port, the ML620/ML630 EADs allows assignment of a service or a customer per port.

The ML620/ML630 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/ML630 are 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/ML630 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/ML630 EADs can be managed In- and Out-of-Band by the MetaASSIST™ View graphical craft application and via the multiplatform 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).

The ML620/ML630 EADs provide full Carrier Ethernet over Copper access functionality, including traffic management and QoS application at the edge. One hundred percent compatible with Carrier Ethernet switching equipment in the CO, the ML620/ML630 provides bandwidth management and QoS at the edge, making the most efficient use of the bandwidth in the copper access network.

The ML620/ML630 EADs provide proactive and dynamic tools for enhanced troubleshooting and monitoring capabilities. Advanced Carrier-class EFM OAM tools, including 802.3ah, CFM (802.1ag) and Y.1731 (ITU), are incorporated offering both physical link as well as service level end-to-end complete troubleshooting mechanisms.

*The ML624/628 EADs support optional 100Base-FX small form factor port, while ML638 supports optional 100/1000Base-FX small form factor port.
