ML680 / ML680D / ML680Dx Ethernet Switches

ML680 ML680D ML680Dx Ethernet Switches

The Actelis Networks ML680 family of cost efficient, compact, hardened Ethernet switches is optimized for delivering up to 100 Mbps of Carrier Ethernet services over 8 pairs of bonded copper and/or fibre. The ML680s are extremely flexible platforms which support drop and continue, as well as linear and ring topologies. They are ideal for a variety of private enterprise, intelligent traffic network, and service provider applications. With its superior performance, environmental hardening, small form factor, and fanless DIN rail mount design, the ML680 Ethernet switch can be installed almost anywhere and provides high performance broadband over bonded copper.

Supporting an extensive set of standards-based Carrier Ethernet features, the ML680’s MEF compliance ensures both service interoperability and multi-vendor interworking. The ML680 features include support for 802.1q VLANs, multi-QoS, and Ethernet OAM, supports up to eight Ethernet interfaces, and allows for multiple data networking devices, video cameras, wireless radios and other IP devices to be connected at each location. The ML680 bonds up to 8 copper pairs and is powered by Actelis Networks’ unique EFMplus™ technology which ensures the best rate/reach performance and carrier-class reliability. Combined with Actelis' industry-leading XR239 EFM Repeaters, the reach can be extended even further.

The recently added ML680D platform extends the ML680 family with an ultra-compact small form factor, hardened, fanless design, that is mountable almost anywhere - ideal for rugged intelligent traffic system, surveillance, railway, utility, and industrial network applications.
