ML620i Ethernet Access Device

ML620i Ethernet Access Device

The ML620i Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) from Actelis® enable delivery of high-speed carrier Ethernet services over the existing copper infrastructure. The ML620i is an intelligent, compact EAD that delivers up to 60 Mbps of symmetrical Ethernet traffic with fibre quality over existing copper pairs. Available with either 2 or 4 copper pairs, the ML620i EAD can be deployed as the CPE in a Point-to-Multi-Point configuration with Actelis’ EFM switches or in a Point-to-Point configuration. Designed as a green, energy-efficient, and cost-effective CPE, the ML620i EAD offers superior performance, extensive functionality and quiet, fanless operation. The ML620i EAD offers rapid service delivery and allows for complete utilization of the existing network infrastructure. The ML620i EAD is Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certified and seamlessly integrates into carrier Ethernet networks. The ML620i EAD is fully compliant with the MEF 9 and 14 specifications.

Equipped with four 10/100Base-T Ethernet interfaces, the ML620i EAD platform is interoperable with any standard Ethernet switch, router or hub, and allows assignment of a service or a customer per port. The ML620i EAD models let service providers create an intelligent Ethernet access edge with bandwidth limiting per ingress port and traffic shaping on the Ethernet Access uplink (HSL). Powered by Actelis Networks’ award-winning EFMplus™ technology, the rate, reach and reliability are increased significantly using advanced Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) and Dynamic Rate Boost (DRB) techniques. This technology doubles the rate/reach in real-world field deployments. Combined with Actelis industry-leading XR239 EFM Repeaters, the reach can be extended even further. All ML620i EAD models provide 802.1q VLAN-aware wire-speed bridging, double tagging (VLAN stacking) for enduser VLAN transparency, L2 (Ethernet priority) and L3 (ToS/Diff-Serv) classification with four traffic classes, RSTP/STP, bandwidth monitoring, Multicast/Broadcast limiting, as well as IGMP snooping for video distribution applications.

The ML620i EADs provide proactive and dynamic tools for enhanced trouble shooting and monitoring capabilities. Advanced Carrier-class EFM OAM, including 802.3ah, CFM (802.1ag) and Y.1731 (ITU), are incorporated, offering both physical link as well as service level end-to-end advanced troubleshooting mechanisms. The ML620i EAD platform can be managed In- and  Out-of-Band by the MetaASSIST™ View graphical craft application and via the multiplatform Element Management System, MetaASSIST™ EMS. The management protocols include standard command line interface and SNMP using standard MIBs for  seamless integration with third-party Network Management Systems (NMS). The ML620i EADs provides full Carrier Ethernet over Copper access functionality, including traffic management and QoS application at the edge, making the most efficient use of the bandwidth in the copper access network.
