City of West Sacramento Modernizes Traffic Management With Actelis’ Hybrid Fiber-Copper Solutions
The City Utilizes Actelis’ New 10 Gbps Hybrid Switches alongside Cobalt Advanced Traffic Controllers By Econolite, Actelis’ Business Partner
FREMONT, Calif., April 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Actelis Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASNS) (“Actelis” or the “Company”), a market leader in cyber-hardened, rapid deployment networking solutions for wide area IoT applications, today announced that the city of West Sacramento, CA, will be deploying Actelis’ new Hybrid Fiber-Copper, high-switching capacity devices as part of a major traffic signal network upgrade. Actelis partnered with Econolite, a leading provider of traffic management systems for this project.
West Sacramento, located just across the river from the state capital of California, has experienced a tremendous population growth of 68% since 2000 – increasing the need for better traffic management solutions. The city’s three-phased project utilizes Actelis’ new family of rapid deployment switches embedded in Econolite’s Advanced Traffic Controllers (ATCs). Built for hybrid networks of fiber and copper, Actelis’ new product family is a line of software-managed, compact industrial switches that utilize the existing fiber or enhance the existing copper infrastructure to fiber grade transmission. The solution brings instant, cyber-hardened, high-speed connectivity out to intersections, at a fraction of the cost of a network that requires digging or trenching for new fiber installation everywhere.
Following the success of the first phases in reducing traffic delays, allowing traffic flow in an efficient and effective manner, and improving emergency services response, the city has been upgrading its traffic management systems, with the final phase currently in progress. Actelis’ new multi-gig networking devices, will enable city staff to manage, maintain, and operate their traffic system with increased efficiency.
“The Actelis solution was ideal for this project because it enabled West Sacramento to very quickly realize the benefits of a modern traffic control system,” said Mike McIntee, Vice President of Western Sales at Econolite.
“We appreciate West Sacramento’s and Econolite’s partnership and the opportunity for the Actelis solution to perform the critical task of delivering high speed connectivity to the city’s intersections, rapidly and at a fraction of the cost,” said Tuvia Barlev, chairman and CEO of Actelis. “Knowing that our technology helps bring a higher level of operational efficiency to city staff, and increased safety to area residents, is very gratifying.”
