Federal, state, and municipal governments are increasing the efficiency of traffic flows, increasing safety, reducing pollution, and avoiding or delaying the need for costly upgrades to road systems by actively monitoring and controlling them as part of an intelligent traffic systems network.  They are also increasingly offering WiFi as a public service.  This requires the placement of various traffic and environmental sensors, signal controllers and electronic signs, HD cameras and hotspots throughout the metro.  Copper is the easiest and most efficient way to get high performance bandwidth where it is needed, and Actelis Networks provides an ultra-reliable, low maintenance, cost efficient solution for backhauling these sensors and cameras over copper on one integrated IP/Ethernet network.  A recognized name in Intelligent Traffic Solutions, Actelis makes hardened, space efficient solutions purpose built to meet major ITS networks’ specifications over both Copper as well Fiber.

Actelis offers a portfolio of rugged and reliable hybrid solutions supporting Fiber, G.SHDSL and VDSL2 Ethernet switches that are environmentally hardened and mount in a street cabinet, in a vault, on a pole, or on a wall or strand. Suitable copper is typically available wherever needed throughout metro road grid, and at many places along highways.

Actelis ITS portfolio includes ML600, ML684Dx and ML680Dx platforms that provide up to 8 Ethernet user ports and ML510D supporting up to 14 Ethernet ports. These ports can be used to connect HD cameras, traffic and environmental sensors, and WiFi hotspots using G.SHDSL bonded copper, VDSL2  or Fiber.  In addition, Actelis ML700 portfolio offers cost effective connectivity over bonded VDSL2 . Actelis ML690E, ML230 and ML2300 aggregation switches provides termination for 8, 16 , 32 and up to 256 copper pairs, delivering an efficient handoff to collocated IP/MPLS switches, routers, and controllers.

Flexible topologies including drop-and-continue networking (2+2 and 4+4 EAST/WEST) for flexible daisy-chain deployment topologies along streets, extending service well beyond typical metro fiber points of presence.  Options in environmentally hardened, DIN rail mount, small form factor, and fanless units suited for the most challenging environments are available.   Actelis’ copper or fiber based ITS solutions can also be seamlessly extended off of metro fiber rings.
