London – 5th April 2016: Lanode, a specialist provider of networking, transmission and data communication solutions is proud to announce that it has been appointed as a new distributor to the non-carrier market in the UK for Actelis Networks who specialise in high performance broadband over copper solutions that provide reliable Ethernet service and broadband access. Reaching locations more quickly, cost effectively, and easily using copper, the Actelis portfolio also complements and extends traffic off fibre networks. Founded in 1998, Actelis has been recognised as the leader in copper-based Ethernet Access Devices. Actelis technology includes G.SHDSL and VDSL-based EFM over copper solutions that use bonded copper to logically combine multiple twisted pairs to enable reliable, high performance, and cost effective transport of high speed Ethernet services. Actelis’ VDSL and ADSL Broadband Amplifiers (the VBA and ABA) enable service operators to offer broadband customers more bandwidth and to reach more of those customers, using their installed base of DSLAM equipment regardless of vendor. Actelis also makes Industrial Ethernet switches that are environmental hardened, reliable, and designed to fit and mount into tight enclosures and vaults using DIN rails which are now available via Lanode. The Actelis’ broadband over copper portfolio available from Lanode includes a full suite of cost-optimised Ethernet First Mile (EFM) over copper CPE/Ethernet Access Devices and aggregation switches, broadband amplifiers, and repeaters.
Donal McDonnell, Managing Director of Lanode commented “We are excited to distribute the Actelis Networks products to our extensive customer base in the UK many of whom will see these products as a tremendous way of optimising their existing copper infrastructures to deliver excellent broadband performance. We have admired the quality and reliability of the Actelis Networks products for many years and are delighted to now have the opportunity to work closely together.”
Eli Lotan, General Manager and Senior VP Sales for International Markets said: “Our agreement with Lanode allows us to work with an established partner with a strong UK presence in markets that we believe have huge potential. We firmly believe that many existing and new customers will derive huge cost and performance benefits from using the Actelis Networks products now available via Lanode. We look forward to a successful and fruitful relationship”
Actelis Networks, the leader in high performance broadband over copper, makes G.SHDSL and VDSL2-based Ethernet First Mile (EFM) over Copper Ethernet Access Devices, innovative VDSL and ADSL broadband amplifiers that extend the bandwidth and distance capabilities of any DSLAM, and Industrial Ethernet switches. Enabling reliable delivery of high speed Ethernet services and broadband access to more customers and the backhauling of Ethernet from more locations, Actelis turns copper into the strategic asset that optimizes networks with a better mix of cost, time to market, reliability and security than fiber, microwave, or other wireless technologies can provide.
