The Washington DOT (DDOT) selected Actelis network resilient hybrid fiber-copper solution for its network upgrade. The DDOT was looking for a solution that would allow it to support the bandwidth required for new applications and devices, such as new controllers' smart sensors and, specifically, an emphasis on video. The challenge was to gradually advance the current twisted copper pair-based network with minimal impact on everyday traffic, as well as to ensure scalability and enable future migration to fiber. The platform selected was also expected to significantly cut management costs by minimizing the number of service call-outs and relying more on remote management from the DDOT traffic operation center (TOC).

The City of Sacramento – Actelis Keeps Traffic Moving Safely in California’s State Capital

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 45 Mbps in capacity.” (more…)
