The Actelis Networks ML230 aggregation switch delivers high speed Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services using bonded G.SHDSL and VDSL2 (future) transmission technologies. It is a high density hardened chassis based platform featuring a modular design with advanced redundancy protection schemes, and is suitable for deployment in medium to small COs or remote cabinets. The ML230 is a carrier class 2 RU high, 3 slot environmentally hardened platform. It supports 32 to 128 copper pairs (64 pairs/RU) and up to 128 customers (links) per chassis. The ML230 can bond up to 32 pairs per link. The ML230 interface slots can be equipped with one SDU (control, switching and aggregation) module card, and up to 2 MLU (modem) access cards.

The ML230 incorporates Actelis’ EFMplus and DRB technologies allowing carriers to offer higher bandwidth per pair and longer reach per service in real world environments along with the most stable and reliable transmission links in the industry. ML230 aggregation switches offer advanced clock transmission mechanism to ensure best clock accuracy and reliability over copper or fibre networks.

The ML230 offers a very cost effective and rapidly deployable solution for Ethernet services and Ethernet transport applications. MEF CE 2.0 certification enables easy integration into existing carrier/enterprise networks, supporting advanced Ethernet features along with comprehensive OA&M capabilities and guaranteed spectral compliance.  ML230 simplifies deployment, provisioning and troubleshooting to enable high service availability and reliability, as well as efficient pro-active management tools to optimize time to market and minimize service downtime.

The ML230 can be flexibly deployed in Point-to-Multi-Point(PTMP), Point-to-Point (PTP) or Drop and Continue scenarios with Actelis ML600/ML500 and ML700 (future) EADs. Actelis’ XR239 repeaters can be used to extend reach and rate of services offered off the ML230.
