Gets More Reliable Bandwidth To More Places Over High Performance Ethernet Over Copper, Enabling Positive Train Control, Diverse Access, plus WiFi and Radio Communications With Crews. A regional railroad transports close to half a million passengers and millions of tons of freight each year, providing a vital link between cities and towns. All while braving extremely challenging environmental conditions and terrain spanning some very remote sections of country. This railroad operator needs to make sure that they operate the railroad safely and efficiently, and to do this they need to maintain a state of the art communications network at all times.

Sacramento, like many cities in the U.S. and around the world is installing a new generation of IP-based traffic cameras and controllers to improve road safety, reduce congestion and help drivers avoid traffic jams.  Actelis is enabling this migration and has become a trusted choice for cities like Sacramento – “We looked at a few vendors, and Actelis was the leader in the Carrier Ethernet over copper space,” says Ryan Billeci, Telecommunications Engineer for the City of Sacramento, “The choice was also made because of the proven robustness of the Actelis solution, because the hardened switch is able to operate in harsh environments” and “bond up to eight copper pairs together, creating high bit rate pipes at […]

San Jose, CA, installed an Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) with real-time IP-based traffic signal controllers that dynamically respond to changing roads conditions, enabling commuters to spend less time in traffic, while helping the city reduce its carbon footprint. “With the Actelis solution, we were able to leverage our existing copper without sacrificing our need to implement a wide breadth of emerging applications over our new IP network.” said Ho Nguyen, associate engineer for San Jose’s Transportation Operations System Management group.

Utilities are a perfect fit for Actelis’ Ethernet over bonded copper solutions, since they tend to have their own large and diverse copper infrastructures often serving remote locations with a requirement to distribute broadband applications.  PG&E needed to deploy a solution quickly to provide high-speed, reliable communications for critical business and control processes and then looked to copper after dismissing fiber, according to Louis Hatton, senior network specialist at PG&E –  “Actelis’ products have continued to perform as we expected and satisfaction is high here at PG&E.”
