ML500 Carrier Ethernet EAD/NTU

ML500 Carrier Ethernet EAD NTU

The ML500 is a compact platform for Carrier Ethernet over fibre applications. ML500 comes in a 1RU high by half rack width wide fixed form factor, for flexible deployment in various environments. ML500 can be deployed as an EAD/NTU in a Point-to-Multi-Point scenario connected to an Actelis aggregation switch - ML2300, ML230, in a ring configurations or book-ended in a Point-To-Point configuration. The ML530 EAD can be used to deliver fully managed, very high bandwidth Ethernet-based service for a variety of network applications, including business-class services, traffic and surveillance, backhaul, and campus and enterprise applications. The ML530 EAD is interoperable with any standard Ethernet switch, router or hub. Compliant with Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications, ML530 EADs seamlessly integrate into carrier Ethernet networks, offering five fast Ethernet interfaces and two fibre optical Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The Actelis’ fibre portfolio complement Actelis’ Ethernet over copper offerings enabling high speed carrier class Ethernet service and transport over both bonded copper as well as fibre. The Actelis EADs and aggregation units provide flexible selection of fibre interfaces to support various customer location scenarios and applications.
