CHICAGO -- Actelis Networks, the leading provider of Carrier Ethernet over Copper networking equipment, today unveiled the industry's first Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) repeater. The Actelis

XR239 EFM Repeater dramatically increases the reach of Carrier Ethernet over existing copper and T1 repeater (239 enclosure) facilities to deliver Ethernet bandwidth over the same facilities that previously could provide only 1.5 Mbps T1 services.

"The Actelis XR239 Repeater represents a major innovation for Carrier Ethernet Access," said Michael Kennedy Ph.D., Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Network Strategy Partners, LLC. "The XR239 is designed to seamlessly convert existing T1 access lines to Ethernet using the existing copper infrastructure and repeater facilities. By providing a 10-fold increase in bandwidth without changing the existing copper infrastructure, this unique product can significantly accelerate the migration from T1 lines to Ethernet in the access network."

The spectrally compliant repeater is a significant addition to Actelis' Carrier Ethernet over Copper product line. Actelis' platforms, based on the innovative EFMplus technology, are the only solutions in the market that deliver the performance, resiliency and simplicity that carriers need for consistent Ethernet services over both copper and fiber media.

"Actelis Networks transforms existing and under-utilized copper infrastructures into robust, high-speed Ethernet networks, empowering carriers and enterprises to deliver and receive huge cost benefits and performance enhancements," said Mehmet Balos, President of Americas and Chief Marketing Officer of Actelis Networks. "With the addition of the first Ethernet in the First Mile repeater, Actelis offers carriers extended reach and flexibility to enable them to deliver Ethernet services to the vast majority of customers within their Carrier Serving Area (CSA)."
