Actelis Networks ML690x product line offers a high density and cost-effective Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) mini-aggregation solution for low-pair count and space constrained locations. Up to 32 HSLs can be supported in a 1RU/19" space. The ML690x operates in a Point-to-Multipoint (PTMP) topology, connecting multiple ML600x Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) each delivering symmetrical Ethernet services to remote subscribers/locations over multiple copper pairs. ML690x product line includes the ML690, ML690E, ML690ES and ML690ENas detailed on the table below.
The ML600 EADs are connected to the ML690x via a High Speed Link (HSL) that is comprised of 1-16 bonded copper pairs. Any combination of copper pairs per HSL can be configured up to the total number of pairs supported by the ML690x unit.
The ML690x bonds up to 16 copper pairs together to create a 2Base-TL aggregated link of up to 230 Mbps, implementing the standard IEEE 802.3ah-2004 (EFM) long-reach Ethernet-over-Copper specification. ML690x incorporates Actelis’ EFMplus and DRB technologies allowing carriers to offer higher bandwidth per pair and longer reach per service in real world environments along with the most stable and reliable transmission links in the industry.
ML690Ex are CE 2.0 compliant solutions offering advanced Ethernet QoS features along with comprehensive OAM capabilities and guaranteed spectral compliance. In addition the ML690ES and ML690EN models, include synchronization capabilities such as Stratum3 internal clock as well as support for SyncE and can be used in frequency clock domain distribution over Ethernet and HSL. ML690EN can equipped with an optional external module - MLE-16E allowing it to provide cost effective aggregation for TDM T1/E1 based traffic in one full 1RU /19" space.
ML690EL series offers higher level of security with cutting edge encryption over the traffic-data plane. Security/Encryption is an optional feature it can be individually set per Ethernet ports, 2 SFP ports, 2 100/1000BaseT ports, and per HSL ports - up to 4 HSLs per ML6916EL. Encryption is MACSec based in accordance with IEEE 802.1AE-2018.
ML690x product line offers a very cost effective and rapidly deployable solution for space constrained and low density areas. It enables easy integration into existing carrier/enterprise networks. ML690x simplifies deployment, provisioning and troubleshooting to enable high service availability and reliability, as well as efficient pro-active management tools to optimize time to market and minimize service downtime.
ML690x can be flexibly deployed in Point-to-Multi-Point, Point-To-Point or Drop and Continue scenarios with Actelis ML600x EADs. Actelis’ XR239 repeaters can be used to extend reach and rate of services offered off the ML690x. Up to 16 HSLs can be supported per ML690x device (specific models).
