OneAccess, a global market leader in multi-service access routers and Carrier Ethernet access devices, today announced the company will market on a worldwide basis a fully integrated access solution based on OneAccess’ sophisticated router platforms, which leverage the performance advantages of Actelis’ patented, award-winning EFMplus™ and Dynamic Rate Boost (DRB) technologies.
In addition, OneAccess will co-market Actelis’ product line of best-in-class Ethernet access devices and aggregation switches. In doing so, OneAccess will help carriers and businesses worldwide significantly reduce their costs of deploying and operating SMB/branch business services. Advancements made in Ethernet technologies by both companies, including consolidation of powerful Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking capabilities into an integrated solution, make it possible to cost-effectively deliver a fiber-like experience over existing copper networks, but at a fraction of the cost of deploying new fiber, with return on investment that takes only months to recoup.
“Service providers are calling for lower total cost of ownership,” said Bertrand Meis, CEO of OneAccess Networks. “We believe that an end-to-end, integrated solution that combines Actelis’ broadband access solutions uniquely positions OneAccess with the ability to embed intelligence into sophisticated customer premise-based routers, providing a cost-effective broadband service delivery platform for business-class, managed and cloud-based services.”
Lower costs and speed to market are clear advantages of an integrated Carrier Ethernet over copper solution, when compared to costly fiber installs or non-scalable legacy solutions such as T1/E1 lines, which are commonly used by SMBs and enterprises today and already leverage the existing copper. However, scaling T1/E1 lines to meet the needs of today’s SMBs and enterprises is very expensive, and cannot easily evolve to enable next-generation EFM business services.
With the new integrated solution, Actelis DSLAMs will now identify the enhanced OneAccess routers as native Actelis endpoints, all of which can be controlled as part of the Actelis MetaASSIST™ element management system.
“SMBs and enterprises are at a crossroad today, faced with making a key business decision on how to best move forward with next-generation, business-class services, but do so pragmatically and economically without sacrificing bandwidth or their experience,” said Vivek Ragavan, president and CEO of Actelis, The Broadband Acceleration Company™ and global leader of Ethernet over copper access equipment. “Innovation from OneAccess and Actelis pushes the broadband boundaries, significantly extending the rate and reach of EFM business services to almost every location, regardless of geography. We believe the integrated solution will enable carriers to meet customer demand cost effectively and immediately.”
The integrated Actelis/OneAccess solution is available now, and features mass-customisable versions of the ONE80A, ONE100A and ONE700A multi-service access routers.
