    "Got Dial Tone? Get Broadband!"

    Actelis Networks® family of Broadband Accelerators (BBAs) provides the only cost-effective and fully standards-based solution to deliver high-bandwidth ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ services. Actelis’ BBAs increase the reach of ADSL services by more than 50%, including boosting rates by as much as 100% on typical loops and more than 400% on longer loops. As a result, carriers can reach the unserved and underserved markets to expand the footprint where they can deliver IPTV service or streaming and Over-the-Top (OTT) video services.

    "Underserved" and "Unserved" Locations Without Actelis BBA


    Providing Universal Broadband With Actelis BBA

    A BBA is line powered from the existing POTS current and can be installed at splice points of the existing copper plant. Actelis’ BBAs are the only solution designed to extend the reach of DSL (ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+) services without impacting voice services. They are completely transparent and fully interoperable with standards-based DSLAMs and Customer Premises Equipment (CPE).

    Actelis’ BBAs can be installed at existing splice points and turned up almost immediately, requiring no EMS, IT integration, external power supplies, active cooling, DSLAM settings or line optimization. The BBA’s ability to auto-calibrate provides the optimal bandwidth and ability to auto-correct for tip-and-ring roll makes installation simple. Once installed the BBA requires no active management.

    Actelis’ BBAs fit into several types of enclosures based on the individual requirements of the carrier and the specific environment in which they are installed. Actelis provides the option of having the BBA enclosed in an IP68-compliant enclosure suitable for very harsh conditions, including underground and submersed environments.

    With the Actelis BBA, carriers can cost effectively meet the dual goals of meeting government mandates on broadband delivery and rapidly grow revenue by delivering additional services (IPTV, OTT video) to their customers. And allowing cost-effective delivery of broadband services to virtually every location throughout a carrier’s footprint, Actelis’ BBAs deliver on the promise: “If you’ve got dial tone, you’ve got broadband!”
