Actelis Networks ML690 product line offers a compact and cost-effective Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) mini-aggregation solution for low-pair count and space constrained locations.  The ML690 operates in a Point-to-Multipoint (PTMP) topology, connecting multiple ML600 Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) each delivering symmetrical Ethernet services to remote subscribers/locations over multiple copper pairs. ML690 product line includes the ML690, ML690E and ML690ES as detailed on the table below.
The ML600 EADs are connected to the ML690 via a High Speed Link (HSL) that is comprised of 1-16 bonded copper pairs.  Any combination of copper pairs per HSL can be configured up to the total number of pairs supported by the ML690 unit.
The ML690 bonds up to 16 copper pairs together to create a 2Base-TL aggregated link of up to 230 Mbps, implementing the standard IEEE 802.3ah-2004 (EFM) long-reach Ethernet-over-Copper specification.  ML690 incorporates Actelis’ EFMplus andDRB 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.
ML690E and ML690ES are CE 2.0 compliant solutions offering advanced Ethernet QoS features along with comprehensive OAM capabilities and guaranteed spectral compliance. In addition the ML690ES models, i.e. ML698ES and ML698ES, include synchronization capabilities such as Stratum3 internal clock as well as support for SyncE and can be used in frequency clock domain distribution over Ethernet and HSL.
ML690 product line offers a very cost effective and rapidly deployable solution for space constrained and low density areas.  It enables easy integration into existing carrier/enterprise networks.  ML690 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.
ML690 can be flexibly deployed in Point-to-Multi-Point, Point-To-Point or Drop and Continue scenarios with Actelis ML600 EADs.  Actelis’ XR239 repeaters can be used to extend reach and rate of services offered off the ML690. Up to 4 HSLs can be supported per ML690 device.
